I really enjoyed the day I hiked up Dicks from Glen Alpine. Some really fine views of the area. I wish I could find my pictures from that day, it was almost 20 years ago.

Vertigo soul

Long day hike starting from Bayview TH, up the NE Ridge of Dicks then traversed down S Ridge and up N Ridge of Jacks. Outside of people on the busy trails, only encountered one person on the traverse of the two peaks (on summit of Dicks) - very unusual for Desolation. Then traversed talus fields under east faces of Jacks and Dicks back to Dicks Pass. Beautiful day and great views!

Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2009


Nice summer outing from the Bayview Trailhead.
Little bit of snow left on the trail to the pass.
Dog and a guy on a cell phone on the summit.
Massive horde (~25 people) were headed up when I was heading back.
Think everyone mistook this for Tallac.

Stopped and tagged both teats of Maggie's Peaks on the return.

Pics are here.

Dayhike from Glen Alpine TH. After climbing Mt. Tallac traversed the ridge to Dicks Pk. Continued on to Jacks Pk and then Pyramid Pk before returning to the car which made for a very long day in a great area which I hadn't visited yet.
Some Photos.

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2006


My favorite wilderness in California! Did a day hike to Dick's for the 4th of July. We took a 'short cut' through the slabs of rocks - do I recommend it? No, it was treacherous. Views were definitely rewarding though! :)

Nice dayhike with some funky ice in places and some cool frozen lakes along the way. Sick views from the top and never saw a soul all day.

Probably the best views in all of Desolation Wilderness. This summit is well worth the effort.

Climbed the NE Ridge from Dick's Pass before traversing to Jack's Peak. 2-3 Class 3 moves on the Ridge were made interesting with some early snow. More snow forecasted for Tuesday, time to throw some wax on the snowboard!

Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2007


Climbed Dicks midway between a solo 20+ mile Jacks->Dicks->Tallac talus traverse from Glen Alpine. It was a gorgeous day in every respect. The only people I saw all day since near the trailhead were on this summit. Also, the only summit register, a makeshift one in a nalgene bottle.

Peak Baguette

Nick K.’s note in the summit register says it better than I ever could: "...he grinned and slung the pack over his shoulder & pondered the question: the type of question which knits the seams in the cosmic nothing. Glancing out across the lakes & valleys extending like fingers into forever he said 'Precisely where the world meets the sky.'"
