Matthew HollimanRoute Climbed: North Ridge/West Face Date Climbed: July 25, 2004  Sucess!

Bypassed the final difficulties on the north ridge by traversing to the west, and found the crux moves to be surprisingly delicate. Descended the sand slopes on the west side--glad I didn't go up that way!

Epic winter ascent. The arete had double cornices in places! Great mixed climbing though. This was a heavy snow year and we had to start at Grays Meadow Campground in Owens Valley.

Did this one as a warm-up for University Peak the following day. Climbing south along the top of the ridge was pretty cool.

Great route, no scree, and rock was solid. Fun airy traverse to the summit. This is a great half-day hike. It's the perfect choice for the day you arrive in the Sierra.

Initially attempted the North Ridge, but I didn't feel good about doing one of the moves near the top unroped with my son. We went lower, swung around to the South Ridge, and easily climbed to the top. Lots of fun once you get out of the scree. Excellent views. Nice half day when you don't have the time for a longer approach.
