Date Climbed: Mar 2, 2008


I hiked up from Lake Ave to tag Muir, Inspiration and Mount Lowe, however it now looks like I climbed the wrong peak for Muir, I climbed peak 4668 ft not peak 4688 ft. duh!

Here is my route and some other stuff:

I have hiked up Castle Canyon many times but never knew there was a sign-in up on that ridge. I also did Muir Peak. Some argument about what is truly Muir Peak in both sign-ins, I called it Muir West to add to the confusion.

First leg in a training regimen for Mt. Whitney. Lovely spot and a nice steep canyon below it.

I never tire of Castle Canyon; sometimes I leave the trail and scoot straight up the middle of the canyon for short ways. My first time to Inspiration Peak. Interesting to find in the summit register for Feb. 2000 the name of my friend Patty Rambert, hardcore climber and SP member, who was killed in a climbing accident on Mt. Mendel last May 2006.
