On Sunday, November 18 2012 I joined Bill Kerr, Dave Salahub and Kevin Papke on a snow slog up an unnamed peak to the south of Isola. Dave decided to call the peak "S.O. Isola or Monola" in order to satisfy Kev's requirement of an 'official' summit. (Since then the peak has been named a more fitting name, Monola, due to it's location between Isola and Monad Peaks.)
After traversing Parker Ridge earlier in the day, I found myself with plenty of time and a gorgeous spring day still ahead of me on Friday May 10, 2013. Since my snowshoes had done a great job of keeping me on top of the punchy spring snow pack, I decided to try one more ridge ascent before heading home.
