Nice dayhike from the Virginia Lakes trailhead. After leaving the trail, I had the mountain all to myself. A little cool and windy, but the views were worth it. Didn't find a summit register.

Climbed this peak with Greg Enright on a search for an overdue day hiker. We summited to check the summit register to see if the missing hiker had signed in, then descended the North Ridge (the subject's reported ascent route). We found the missing hiker, unfortunately deceased, on the east side of the north ridge. She had apparently taken a loooong fall to the glacier/snowfield in the cirque below. We declined the helo ride out, and continued back to the trailhead on foot.

No ice axe, no crampons for the first time this year! At last, a nice class 1 hike on a perfect day. Easy, easy ascent on mostly consolidated scree/talus.

Nice fall climb. We didnt see any other people, had perfect weather and some new snow, thigh deep near the peak . It was so clear it seemed like you could see hundreds of miles.

Typical rocky hike, it would be a much better trip in the winter with skis. Good views from Dunderburg to Dana. The Northeast Ridge seemed more like a class 1.

Great ski tour with good spring snow conditions. Lack of acclimatization caused me to use up too much time napping, so I ended up only reaching the northeast ridge.

One big pile of rubble. But nice views. Probably an easier climb from the north, too. Trip Report
