jesu, joy of man\'s desiring

I forget the day we climbed this so I just picked a date in Sept. I'm no authority, but Peter Croft is right: this HAS to be one of the best Sierra scrambles!!!!

Bring a pair of rock slippers and the steep, slippery 5.2 cruxes are okay without a rope.

...on the long descent I did not stop to drink water so I had some violent dry heaves near the parking lot, which really frightened some tourists.

Climbed a very prominent arete to the right of the NE gully which splits up and right around the red rock band. Climbed a headwall that was 99% never climbed before- sketchiest moves I have done while soloing. Had a lot of fun in the end. Rock above wasn't bad at all and arete was amazing!

We had hoped for more snow, but the start to the season was quite dry. Ended up bushwacking up to the NE ridge where decent rock was finally found. Overall a nice day and a nice view.

Climbed the NE slope from Convict lake and followed the ridge to the summit. Took about 6.5 hours for our group of 9 to reach the top.

Car to summit in 2:25, solo. Lower portion covered in snow, so climbed loose 3rd class on the right. At one point you had to go underneath a slab of snow! Fun, but weird climbing overall. Missed the left turn to the right gully in the red band and ended up going up a smooth grey slab to a point north of the summit. Descended the large bowl to the north of the summit, then down a steep trail through brush.

Gnarly storm weekend. Got an early start and planned on the Laurel/Bloody double but storms built crazy fast and we were in thunder/lightning/rain by the time we made it down from the quick Laurel summit. No bloody today...

Having done it earlier in the summer as a rock climb, it seemed only fitting to climb it as a massive snow climb. Both were fun, definitely comparable in difficulty. I still think the descriptions of the "worst rock you will encounter" are very blown out of proportion; felt decently solid wherever I climbed up there.

Great view. Still a tremendous amount of snow on the surrounding peaks, but this route was mostly snow-free. Descended north side to the plateau then dropped down east to Convict Creek/ Lake.

Great climb/run! Gotta do in summer now.

Nice job boarding that. Have you done Bloody Couloir? Just curious how they compare. I did Bloody and found it intimidating looking down from the top, but really not so difficult.

First big Cl4-5 solo climb. Loved every minute of it, despite being tired from the Whitney MR/MT loop the day before.
