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

Climbed with Laura Molnar. We wimped out and brought climbing shoes, but only used them on the first technical section (5.2 ?) then switched to approach shoes for the rest. Very fun route ! Great views and a perfect day.

Descended via the hanging valley noted in Bob's route page - not really that brushy, though doing it in shorts would be rough. There was a pretty good use trail for most of the way.

Fascinating rock - this would be a dream climb for a geologist.

Decent route. some poor rock, some good. The descent does seem to go on forever.

Followed several faint use trails up the south slope, staying west of the three gray rock patches. Had the summit to ourselves.

Fun solo climb, the different types of rock are amazing. The decent dragged on for a while but convict lake makes for a nice reward.

Finished a shift in the ER at 2AM, drove to Mammoth, arriving at 5:30AM, slept for 2 hours and then started hiking at around 8:15AM. The lower part of the gully was fun (and slick), but I disliked the upper part. Took about 7 hours car-to-car at a leisurely pace. Good route for keeping fit and getting some altitude on a day off with no partner.

This was a lot easier than I expected, mostly class 2. It's so different from the rest of the Sierra. Amazing colors.

Soloed with Deb & Dave Daly. Easy relaxing day out. Hot & dusty descent though. Took a refreshing dip in Convict Lake.

Route Climbed: NE Gully
Date Climbed: August 6, 2005

Climbed on snow for the first 300 vertical feet of the route. Unfortunately, the 5.2 crux move was buried under 12+ feet of snow and missed it. So, instead, I picked my way up on class 4/low 5th cracks just to the left of the main gully to compensate for it. A decent scramble. I climbed with SCMA members Murray Z and Cathy R.

Fun, easy climb with 2 "cool dudes" even though it was a blazing warm day with a late start. 5th class sections were a blast and change in rock composition kept it interesting. North ridge descent bites ass but it's the quickest way down.

What a fun route! Even though there is a bit of loose rock throughout the route, the overall quality was quite excellent....and so was the company I was with: Miguel and Deb....great partners! No problems finding our way up this fun scramble. The crux: the "furnace" like heat on the descent back to the trailhead! :P Overall time car-to-car (including lunch at the summit and a swim in Lake Crowley): 7 hours 20 minutes. Would do it again!

Started the route at 4:30 am and reached the summit at 7. There were some fun sections. Alot of crap rock so beware if you have people climbing below you. the last 500 feet or so below the summit is a seemingly endless scree slog. Oh, and do not forget the mosquito repellent!

Nice climb on largely good rock, but got off route and lost a lot of time. Underestimated the pace of our progress. Partner got beaned in the leg by football-sized rockfall. Got as high as the band of red rock and decided to abort rather than risk being benighted without good bivy gear. Did several rappels and some downclimbing. Left a disappointingly large (and expensive) amount of gear on the route, but got back out before dark. Will plan better next time.

This route was really interesting. There was some nice rock on the bottom. Descent seemed to go forever.
