rhyangKaiser Loop trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 1, 2008

Dayhiked from D&F pack station, then west on the loop trail down past Nellie Lake, through Mary's Meadow and back. 14-15 miles / 3500' gain I would guess.

The trail from the pack station was mostly clear up to about 9200', but west of the peak the trail was mostly under snow down to about 8200', making for some fun navigation :)

Started from Nellie Lake east on Kaiser Loop Trail. North slopes of ridge still had remains of big cornices in places. Excellent views. Saddle above George Lake also had remains of a cornice, but the rock scramble was dry, with some low-angle snow down to College Lake, where a ducked use trail descends to George. Fun little trip.

Also did it as a short backpack trip in June 2001, starting from D&F, overnighting at Line Creek Lake and returning through Mary's Meadow (etc).

I went on a day hike with Juan and the dogs on a weekend camping trip at Sample Meadows campground. We did lots of fun scrambling in the Kaiser Peak area, but did not make it over to the summit ridge. The next day we parked at Mono Hot Springs and scrambled ESE up to what I discovered was Mono Peak. There was no current trail register up on Mono Peak, but I did come across some faded notes and signatures from the 1930's scribed on metal plates.

IronDreamerMy first summit...  Sucess!

And certainly not to be the last! The view is superb, nearly the entire San Joaquin watershed. It was a fabulous place to piece together many other locations I'd visited into an overall mental map/mosaic. I think the summit bug is in my blood!

Can't remember the exact date, but it was a good hike. It was easy for me because we were going slow to accomadate those in our group. Everyone made it with some pushing and pulling (literally!). Great view of the surrounding mountains.

Nice hike. I messed up and forgot to bring my camera. The 360 degree views from this summit are nothing short of awesome. Ritter and Banner seem so close. Was up and down in less then 5 hours. Thunderheads where building fast. All in all a beautiful hike.

Very enjoyable loop hike from the D&F Pack station to the peak and then down around George and the Twin lakes and returning through Potter Pass.
