mrchad9Southwest Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2013

Took the unusual step of going the southwest face instead of from the east (especially given I was camped in Center Basin), but this was a stopover after visiting Junction from Forester Pass earlier in the day. Route went easy class two but slightly steeper than from the east.

I hadn't researched it at all and was shocked to find a class four summit block on top! Nervous at first as when I walked around it things didn't look too easy. I was afraid I'd be turned back by my first summitblock! A bit more poking around and as it turns out there is a pair of super convenient footholds on the northeast side that made hoisting myself up a simple matter. Fun finish to the climb!

A straightforward slog, not too loose. From Onion Valley via University Peak.

The peak and Center Basin were gorgeous in spring with snow just about everywhere. My two partners and I climbed this peak in the morning and Bradley in the afternoon. I didn't think the summit block was all that tricky.

I was disappointed in the climbing on the North Face. A loose, crappy chute without much solid rock. Combined this with Bradley for a moderate day. Trip Report

Desert Solitaire

Climbed as part of Day 8 of the 2007 Sierra Challenge. Over University Pass, and down to Center Basin. Admittedly, having studied the features on the North Face well from the Pass, I didn't bother to pull out the route description. I ended up climbing the largest chute on the North Face with a headwall at the top of the talus fan (Bob took the chute described by Secor further right). Much of the climbing was loose class 2/3, with one steep, exposed, and fractured class 4 section to overcome the headwall. The summit block was lots of fun, but hardly class 4 - no exposure at all! Car to car time: 9 hours.

Climbed this nice peak after having done Mt. Bradley. The 4th Class summit block on Center is fun. The distances to Bradley and Center from the basin (Golden Bear Lake area) are relatively short. However, the trip into Center Basin from Onion Valley Trailhead over University Pass is tough.

From Golden Bear Lake. After bad weather the two days prior we got a great day of sunshine. Enjoyable views from the top.
