Day hike via Taboose Creek. I went up the 'county line' route from Secor and down the south chute.

Great views, but the slog up the south chute was miserable. Lots of loose talus, especially about halfway up, that makes for two steps forward, one step back. Very little snow left that was easily crossed without gear.

Originally planned for Split Mtn via Red Mtn Crk that weekend, but was surprised (back in those days of very little beta) by the locked gates and huge 'no trespassing' signs blocking access.
Plan 'B': Taboose Pass Trail. From Taboose Pass I went up the southwest ridge and down a snow chute on south slope. Surprisingly large amount of snow left up in the high country. Great views of what, for me at the time, was a great unknown area of the High Sierra.

Up the county line route on the 2nd afternoon of a 5-day trip in the area with my bother. This was his second summit ever, after Goodale in the morning. Came down the scree gully on to the south. We had perfect CA weather each day, bagging Striped, Goodale, Cardinal, Wynne, Pinchot, Arrow, and Pyramid during the trip.

Climbed in conjunction with goodale Mtn on the last day of winter...Glissading down from the summit to Tabooze pass made the descent really fun.

Came from camp on Taboose Pass on the final day of a 4 day 4 peak trip. Climbed the county line ridge. There was a short section where you traverse some loose rock but other than that an easy climb. Awesome views from the top. Descended via a scree chute back to the pass.

Final peak of a four-peak weekend including Wynne, Goodale and Striped -- best views of the bunch by far. Fun scree ski down the chute.

Day 1 of a tough weekend with Taboose Pass and Cardinal Mtn on Day 1 and Arrow Pk and exit on Day 2. Standard approach straight up from the lakes below the pass. Tried to keep it in the Cl 2/3 rocks as the scree was terrible (but ok for descent) Great views and perfect day -- looks like people use the mtn as a ski peak in the winter. Arrow Pk is a long ways away... Pictures

Taboose Pass was not as bad as I thought from reading earlier reports. Made it to the summit in about 5h. Great views! Then climbed Goodale as well. Thanks, Tom, for waiting with cold beer at the TH.

Somehow, Ryan and I managed to climb halfway up the wrong peak before realizing we weren't on Cardinal. Doh! Recovered from our errant ways, summiting Cardinal and then Goodale for good measure. Trip Report

The county line route is almost entirely class 1 and the hike up to Taboose Pass was easier than expected making for an enjoyable day. Descended the loose chute on the south side. On the way up we spotted a bear heading down to the trailhead for snacks. Excellent views.

With Steve and Charles, camped in a dry patch below lake 11,840 ft+. The south chute had frozen snow, so it was up the slope left of it. Beautiful day after a cold windy night! Pictures here.

Sleeping at 11,500 at Taboose was great. Going at a blistering fast pace because your leaders are ultra marathoners... not so great. Heehee. It was fun, I was sore for 3 days afterwards.. Loved it!

A long training hike/talus slog rewarded with tremendous views of this part of the range. Overnighted near the pass with a full moon.
