Date Climbed: Sep 10, 2012


With R. Renteria. Protecting any of this is futile. Leave the rope at home.

Got off-route up high (too far right) and climbed some sketchy higher angle rock up to the top.
With Todd.

Great route with some fun sustained climbing. Much more fun than the NE ridge route. Base to summit in about 3.5 hours.

Adventurous, byzantine route--but you gotta love scree because this one serves up some of the Sierra's finest.

ClimbpeaksFrom Sherwin side  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2014


Hiked up the Laurel Lakes Road all the way from down near Highway 395. Once at a decent spot, I hiked and scrambled up Laurel from the North through bush, scree, and rock. Much longer than anticipated, but I could see some climbers far ahead and towards the summit which motivated me to push on, as it looked like they had just finished on the NE route from the Convict Lake side and were making their own final ascent. Summited with some incredible views towards Bloody Mountain Duck Lake Peak, the Silver Divide, Red Slate, and deep in to the Sierra Range.

Had snowboarded Mammoth the day before, so my legs were asking to be taking off life support.

Vitaliy M.Fun solo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 24, 2013

Vitaliy M.

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!

crimsonbloodWishing for more snow  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 26, 2011


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.

WayneFryNE Slope  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 26, 2011


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.

bc44caesarMendenhall Couloir Variation  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2011


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.

Went up from saddle between Laurel and bloody. Good conditioning hike. Not very interesting route.
