Ascent Trip Report

Second attempt at suicide peaks, this time I decided to go in from Falls Creek instead of Rabbit Lake. I made it to the top of both summits this trip. It was a much shorter and more enjoyable trek, easy to follow path all the way to the top. Once you make it to Lake Charlie at the end of Falls Creek Trail, I went up almost directly behind the lake to a ridge where I picked up a well used trail. The trail from there was a gentle incline all the way to the South Suicide. Coming down S. Suicide into the saddle was a little more of a steep decent and then across and up the other side to North Suicide. There was a few very short sections of scrambling (Class 2?) on the way to N. Suicide, nothing me and my dog had any issues with, once again there was a fairly well defined path up the ridgeline to follow. I had filled up my 2 liter platy at Lake Charlie and still managed to run out about a mile away from the lake on my return trip. If it's a hot and sunny day make sure to bring plenty of water, there is very little snow this late in the year along the ridges and no other water sources nearby.
