Jim Hill Mountain via Lanham Lake (attempted)
We snowshoed the Lanham Lake trail to the lake then ascended the wooded ridge east of Lanham Lake toward the saddle between Jim Hill Mountain and point 5707. Other than a few scrambly spots where we pulled ourselves up by the brush we didn't encounter difficulties, but I'm sure every party picks their own route up the side of the ridge, I didn't see any obvious route. We overshot a bit and reached the top of the corniced ridge at a point south of the saddle. Because of time limitations we turned around here and returned the same way.
