|Fresh from a major storm, I found myself slogging through deep snow in areas and the upper part of the drainage was snow covered.|
Very exhausting hike up and over the drainage...interesting and original approach to the peak summit..not straightforward and psychologically draining. What an incredible view of Tin Mountain on the way back!
Got an amazing 360 degree view of the Sierra, Inyos, and Death Valley and white mountain range all covered in snow from the fresh storm. One hell of a 9 hour 20 min day!

|I went up the wash, down the canyon on the west side, then the first ridge out of the canyon to the summit, so a variation of the DPS route. As for the wash climb from Racetrack Road, it had to be the worst wash climb ever. I see many are starting to climb the northern ridge and skipping the wash entirely. It would have to be pretty awful to be worse than the wash.|

|Somehow, the pictures don't do it justice. Sure it is a slog, but a solo hiker gets a chance for introspection -- it seems *really* in the middle of nowhere, once you drop over the ridge.|
I got the idea of the south ridge from Kathy W -- boy that was a pleasant descent.
If you take the time to go all the way there from the east side, be sure to walk west and north across the top -- that's where you'll get the best views.
