14 West to Chambers Lake Campground

Matt Primomo & I hiked up to the to the Chambers Lake Campground and followed a trail that met up with the Blue Lake Trail at the Rawah Wilderness boundary. We followed the Blue Lake Trail to ~10,500’, then abandoned it to climb a gully leading to Clark Peak’s south ridge. We gained Clark Peak’s south ridge and followed it to the summit of Clark Peak. We quickly descended due to high winds. Descending off the ridge was the best part of the run, but following the gully and skiing powder in the trees was also enjoyable.
