hgrapidWow that was hard!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2015


Okay, to be fair, I still had a cold and that made it far worse. But despite talk about 0% of normal snowpack in California, that certainly was not the case! The snow impacted our trip and forced us to take a harder route down. It didn't help on the way up either! We got 10 on the summit and descended a steep gully that wasn't a good way to go. But we made it. I have now done pretty much all the major dayhike peaks in Virginia Lakes.

This would normally be a class-1 route, but the north chute was 75% under fresh snow (from the late September storm), and some detours were needed to avoid the white stuff. New SPS summit register placed in August 2014. Fourteen parties have signed up the register since.

fedakFrom Kavenaugh Ridge ORV  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2014


Hiked up from the Kavenaugh Ridge ORV off of the spur road that joins the Virginia Lake and Green Creek roads.

And then followed the NE ridge to the summit. Probably easier but longer to take the ORV road all the way up to the Kavenaugh Ridge plateau but this wasn't a bad route.

Pic and commentary are here.

Summit Registry (and the whole summit cairn) have gone missing since I was last up here in 2004.

The obvious ridge is mostly well-behaved talus on the way up. I unfortunately wasn't able to find a boot-ski on the way down and, after suffering a bit, just took the ridge.
Easy hike, cool views into northern Yosemite.

Decided to do this peak while everyone else sat in the air conditioned Bridgeport library. Turned out to be the best peak of the ten that I did over 5 days. Some loose talus but nowhere near what I was warned about.

Niels79Southwest slope  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 19, 2011


Lots and lots of loose scree and a bit of scrambling. Clouds was coming in as I was approaching the summit and on the way down the clouds closed in around me, but as fast as they came in they disappeared

Skied the steep gully directly above VA Lakes trailhead... bullet proof on top and softening to perfect corn near the bottom. Ran a 2nd lap up the VA Lakes bowl to the west.
