DebSouth Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 3, 2017


Quick windy day of climbing this peak and enjoying the solitude. Lots of Ravens and ladybugs on the summit.

DariaDesert Stroll  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 2, 2014


Was looking for a short dayhike for a workout and an excuse to get out to enjoy the nice day....pleasant stroll, nice desert landscape as usual. Beautiful summit views. The area is surprisingly peaceful being so close to the road. Reminds me why it is so nice living in a small town setting-barely any traffic or noises. Nothing but pure peace and quiet-good for the soul.

wandered over to the east summit and back down the east summit's south ridge for a loop-hike.

Nice day for a hike, no one else up there. No snow. Would like to come back here in the fall for a nice pinyon harvest. Among the bristlecone found 1 limber pine.

calipidderViews are worth it  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2010


Scrambled straight up from the mine (what's the story there? lots of equipment that looks recent but the sign says abandoned mine hazard). Signed register on false peak then scree-skied down to the ridge line and followed to the top. Found use trail on return that took us around the false peak and avoided the slog back over it. Great views, short hike, relatively easy road for average SUV/truck.

Bob and I had a long outing to Hooper Peak the day before (why this obscure peak? don't ask), and drove down to Bishop to meet Jeff for Trapezoidal. High winds and cold temperatures convinced us to go do something easier instead as a warmup for Goddard. This was our choice. We weren't expecting much, but found some superb views of the Palisades--skies were unusually clear because of the wind. This is a good short, acclimatization peak.

Not an exciting mountain but a good work out when starting from the valley floor. View is pretty nice though.

downbootiesMiners' Road to trail from the east  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2006


Flipping through the summit register, I noticed the common theme of nakedness. I'm not an exhibitionist by any means, but the place was quiet and very hot and I could imagine how lovely it would feel to peel off sweaty articles and make a nest out of them to enjoy the view. Alas, it wasn't to be (this time). Jon and I rushed home to our cold beers instead.

thedusNice Afternoon Stroll  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2006


Robin and I headed up in the afternoon with the prospect of an easy peak bag. We weren't disappointed. Unfortunately it was a hazy day, so the summit photos didn't turn out so well.
