Climbed this more than once -- 6/30/84 was with brothers Jon & Andrew and friend Stan. We headed cross-country to Pear Lake, I got off track and into a scary descent...

Date Climbed: Nov 3, 2011
Hiked Alta Peak yesterday solo. Beautiful day. Windy and cool on the summit. Both registers on the summit were full, so did not get to sign in. Only saw three people all day. Very little snow, although a Winter storm was on the way.

A foot of snow about 1 week before my trip made for a glorious fall hike. Ran into a mother bear with two cubs while taking a detour up to Panther Peak.

Great hike from Wolverton, several miles through dense forest with bears, and then the views open up over the Great Western Divide. From the summit, you can see Whitney. The last two miles are straight up, tough but worth it. Also is an excellent place to get engaged. :D

The last mile of the hike was one big snow field, but so worth it

With two friends who had never gone hiking. Tough first hike, but well worth it. Beautiful scenery on a beautiful day with great friends--can't be beat.

EnFuegoSolo via Pear Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2009

After a hiking partner bailed on me at last minute, I decided on a solo trip to Alta Peak. I started at the normal TH at Wolverton parking lot, hiked ther Lakes Trail to Heather Lake via the Watchtower Route, than on to Aster Lake, Emerald Lake and finally Pear Lake for lunch. From Pear Lake skirted the north (east?) shoreline to the end of the lake. From here, scrambled some Class III and IV sections up to the saddle about halfway between Peak 11,328 and Alta Peak. Hiked the ridgeline and summited Alta Peak. Descended the south face Class I route around Tharps Rock, through Mehrten Meadow, Panther Gap, and then back up to join the Lakes Trail again. Nice 15 mile lollipop route.

Sporadic snow past Mehrten Meadow. The final 500 feet had about 1 foot of snow. Fantastic views of the Great Western Divide on a clear day.

Took the standard trail from Wolverton. My friend's GPS registered around 8 miles each way. I loved the scenery at the top. Decided that the roundtrip to "Winter Alta" seemed way longer than we wanted to bother with.
