Easy walk from the trail to the summit of Koip, then a bit more use of hands needed to reach the top of Kuna. Ten hours round trip with a stop at the crash site.

My first day of Sierra Challenge (day 3)-part of a 5 peak traverse. Standard no thrills or frills kind of peak, but cool little area. Traverse from Blacktop via Koip Crest which was the highlight of the day with Bob Burd and the gang.

mrchad9From Kuna, nice scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2008


A two day trip, pitched camp just over Parker Pass and summitted Koip and Kuna on day one, a fun scramble over from Koip, not much snow to contend with- no axe, or crampons involved, but lots of snow in Lyell Canyon.

There is a make-shift register up there but the summit could use an amo can.

metasyn11From Koip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2007


Made the ascent from Koip on a dayhike out of Mono Pass TH. I wasn't sure I made it to the high point yet (no register), and was traversing along the Kuna Crest when I was rebuffed by the gaping chasm in the ridgeline shortly west of the summit. I later found out in was only class 3, but didn't think to really start climbing it to find out. No matter, I (later found out) made it to the high point anyway.

sierragatorRoute Climbed: traverse from Koip Date Climbed: 8-20-05  Sucess!


Long dayhike from Walker Lake to bag Koip, Kuna, Parker, Wood, and Lewis. Could not find the summit register for Kuna,, hopefully it is just hidden on the summit instead of falling victim to whoever is stealing sierra summit registers. Great weather and awesome views.

Fairly easy talus walk up and over Koip Peak. Windy as hell lower down, at the summit almost calm, although I could hear the wind blasting up the S face. Summit register currently under the vertically arranged rocks that form the high point.
