Diamond Peak

February 16, 1974

This climb was to be by way of Corrigan lake and West Ridge. We drove up road No. 2381 until stopped by snow at 4000 feet. We continued up the road on snowshoes two miles, then turned east cross country towards Corrigan Lake. The trip ended at Corrigan Lake for a number of reasons. The chief reason was that two members had to be home by Sunday night. Above 4500 feet about one foot of new snow was encountered, which slowed travel and also would mean that three days would be required for a summit climb. Saturday night was spent at Corrigan Lake, which received several inches of snow while we were there. Sunday morning we sauntered out on snowshoes under a sky that looked steadily more threatening. The would-be climbers? Tim Chase, Wes Prouty and the leader was Jack Nitzel.
