Lichtenberg Mountain

 

Access: Lichtenberg just off Hwy 2.  To access you will need to park at the Smiithbrook Pullout which is heading Westbound on Hwy 2 during the split.  Then, if the avy danger is low enough you can approach from the SW side of the mountain or follow the logging road for about 3 miles.  It will have already made 2 switchbacks, but a few hundred feet prior to the third switchback you will navigate your way to the summit Requires some navigation skills as the slope can be difficult to find a good way

 

Description: 

Lichtenberg is an enjoyable summit with several different routes.  The Smithbrook road approach is more conservative with avy danger, but the Southside has a nice descent if the snow is stable.  There are also ways to link this with Skyline or Union for a long day.
