trexkerryIn snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2017
Early season snowstorms shut down Tioga, Ebbets and Sonora Passes...we wanted to do Mt Lewis in Yosemite but swapped that for Glass. After many hours of driving we started in 32 degree temps.

After the first 500 feet it was all snow, we lost the trail on the way up but it worked out fine. Temps dipped into the mid 20s, with low clouds, flurries and blowing ice crystals. It was darn cold. The route was steep, then on descent we found the trail and followed it all the way down.

The road in is excellent.

Needed a chill day for my twisted ankle. Chilly it was! Tagged the radio tower peak, actual summit, and Glass Mtn Ridge summit. Beautiful fall colors and tons of shiny obsidian.

RuvichaShort but steep  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2016


This was a warmup/acclimatization hike for us lowlanders at the start of two weeks in the Sierra. It served its purpose well, involving only a few miles but all of them relentlessly up. It also afforded fine views of the Long Valley, the huge caldera that is a remnant of one of the greatest volcanic cataclysms in North America's past.

jdmorehouse2nd Ascent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2016


I'm climbing the DPS list for a 2nd time, and this was on the way to Tioga Pass, where I had two days of climbing coming up. A thunderstorm in the area started a fire between the Glass range and Mono Lake.

Took a quick run up one morning while vacationing in Mammoth with the family. Well worth the effort to get to the TH. The views are spectacular! Took the scenic route by continuing south and east on the network of dirt roads. This added about 45 minutes to the drive, but was a fun alternative to just heading back to pavement.

Date Climbed: Apr 20, 2013


We had great firm snow in the morning, and the snow softened up enough to allow plunge-stepping down a few hours later. Very short trip -- even with the snow, it was 1h 20m to top, 30 m down. An 8-year-old kid made the trip in sneakers.

Incredible views of the White Mountains on the way up and the Sierra from the summit. I also made the easy hike over to Glass Mountain where the communications towers are located.

Climbed with brother Andrew -- tried out bottled oxygen using tank borrowed from the Mammoth hospital. The 10 pound tank negated any positive effect of the oxygen.

After Owens Peak day before. Had to get the van over a big snow patch on the road near the start of the hike. Snow on the Sierra and clear skies
