Write Up:
With the Hidden Lake Overlook trail closed due to bears, Mount Reynolds, the original destination, was out of reach. The group decided in the Lunch Creek parking area to climb Mount Siyeh and, if possible, Cracker Mountain. Ascending the cliff band, we spotted a little cave with a narrow hole at the top and crawled through it during both the ascent and descent. Above the cliff band, we braved 40+ mph winds as we made our way to the summit. We decided over lunch that Cracker was a peak too far in the high wind and returned the way we came. While the vistas were partially obscured by the smokey haze, the day was otherwise sunny and clear and the temperature perfect for climbing. We met three other climbing parties along the way and numerous hikers on the Siyeh Bend trail. No critters were observed.
