Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2013


Quick run up the east ridge from camp in Center Basin. Found the ridge fun and easy but perhaps a bit overrated.

I climbed it as a dayhike from Onion Valley. I thought it was a fun ridge scramble.

Dayhike from Onion Valley. Climbed up the east ridge and down the southeast chutes. The crux of the climb may have been crossing Bubbs Creek which was running high and fast. On the way back on the JMT before reaching Vidette Meadow, I came across two full grown bears playing/wrestling right on the trail which was pretty cool.

Sierra Challenge 2009. From East side-tedious scramble, and cool large summit boulders. The hike back up to Bullfrog lake was soooooo much fun!!!!! (not really)

First part of a Sierra Challenge twofer. Mixed class 2/3 with lots of bushes and dirt. It's a nice-looking peak, but the climb doesn't live up to it.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2009


A solo day trip from our camp at Charlotte Lake. Climbed some combination of a chute on the SE side lower down and what I think was the East Ridge higher up. Route was class 2-3 and there was fun scrambling near the top. Descended the wrong chute on the way down and had to traverse over to find easier ground.

Nice straight-forward solo climb up northeast ridge, and some nice snow-sliding down.

Only down-side were the pesky mosquito's that followed me to the top.

The first time I climbed this in 1979, the original register was still there. By the mid80's it was gone. Nice climb!

Desert SolitaireVidette Duo Dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2007

Desert Solitaire

Dayhiked the two Videttes (West and East) during Day 7 of the 2007 Sierra Challenge. Descending from West Vidette, Bob pointed to the craggy and broken up West Face of East Vidette and said, "hmmm... I think there's a 3rd/4th class route somewhere on that face." That was all I needed to head straight up. Much better climbing than West Vidette. Descended the E/SE side. Car to Car time: 13 hours.

3rd class ridge was fun with good views. The descent via the cl.2 chute wasn't fun. Peak #13 on JMT adventure.

I climbed this peak while backpacking in the park for a week. It had snowed/rained 2 days earlier extinguishing a few small wildfires nearby thereby clearing the air. Little was left on the peak on the south-facing route.

Dayhiked with Evan on day 7 of the Sierra Challenge. The route can hardly be described as classic, but rather mundane. The North Side looks a good deal more exciting.
