bc44caesarY Couloir  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 16, 2011


Skinned up Blue Canyon then on to the north face of Leavitt. Cramponed up the couloir and met with high winds at the summit. Awesome ski descent down the couloir and then back to the car, although it gets a little flat in spots. The couloir is 40 degrees max at the top, and mostly 35 I'd say.

Trawinski3rd Time Up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2008


This was my third time up. I love camping at Latopie Lake. This time the wind was sustained 50mph with winds gusting to 75 on the kestrel.

colinrFrom east of the Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2010


We were camped about a mile east of Sonora Pass, providing an opportunity for extra elevation gain on the hike and some fun scrambling to reach the trail. This was my daughter's highest summit to date, just before her third birthday. She insisted on hiking herself all the way up to the ridgetop where the wilderness signs stand before taking a nap much of the rest of the way to the summit in the pack. Mom was NOT happy when we got back after dark.

nickLLeavitt Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2009


I did this as a loop by heading north west from Leavitt Lake and climbing the east ridge past Latopie Lake. Came back down the long way, following the PCT all the way SW till the trail turns back toward Leavitt Lake. Very scenic hike and I didnt see another soul till I got back down to Leavitt Lake!

Another perfect weather day with my summit partner Melissa Thaw. Found that by going to Koenig lake, then proceeding up the use trail to the right, you go up a direct route to the summit. russ thaw

Still a lot of snow in the bowls. Took some energy to traverse those.

Vertigo soul

Perfect corn snow, beautiful day and had the summit to myself...what more can you ask for! Was going to climb and ski the Y Couloir, but runneled up real good with some rock debris and didn't look too stable with all the sun hitting it. Instead, just hit up the NE bowl for some great turns!

wyopeakMikea fine view  Sucess!


I will always remember the day I hiked up to Leavitt's summit. It was when I lived in Auburn and was doing a lot of exploring in the region. The view to the south of the Emigrant Wilderness and Northern Yosemite was superb. I remember it being one of the most inspirational vistas I had ever seen. I live now in Wyoming for 15 years, but I still remember that view as something else. There were so many beautiful summits to gaze at, I could barely leave the summit. I remember it as a chilly clear day in the fall, and I drove back to Auburn a very happy hiker. I hope to return again. I always dreamed of Tower Peak after seeing it that day.

Via right hand branch. Left branch melted out as was the lower half of the couloir. Descent northwest ridge.

MtnLdrDidn't know it had a name!


Can't remember exactly when it was that we climbed this one, but it was winter, '01 or '02 (can't remember), and we didn't know the mountain had a name back then. Climbed with a large group of fellow instructors from the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center.

kovarpaY couloir, twice  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 17, 2008


Climbed up, thought about skiing this down - to the entertainment of other skiers on the summit, just before dropping in one my skis released and went all the way down the couloir... so down I went and back up again. Dropped in at about noon but chickened out after some 50 feet... climbed back up and skied the north slope instead back down Blue Canyon... I wish I was a better skier.

96avs01Shredn the N. Bowl  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 10, 2008


Quick morning solo trip with the splitboard up the North Bowl. The couloirs didn't look appealing, so even with a partner it would have still been the N. Bowl for descent. Conditions were firm for about 300', and then nothing but prime Sierra spring corn!
