Route Climbed: South East Ridge Date Climbed: July 29, 2000
On the last morning of a 50 miler, we ascended from our camp at Latopie Lake and went up the scree slopes. We found a use trail half way up and followed it. Not too much exposure and scrammbled a little. The view from the top wasn't great because of a fire in Kennedy Meadows (Not the one right below us, the southern one). Was fun anyway. We then hiked out to Sonora Pass.
Route Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: May 20, 1995
Hiked into Blue Canyon and set up camp below Blue Canyon Lake. With lots of snow and plenty of daylight, I hiked up to Leavitt while the others hung around camp (there's just a bunch of snow there, so I didn't see the fun in just hanging out). I returned via the NW ridge of the Pacific Crest, descending a steep snow chute directly down to Blue Canyon Lake. That was fun! Trip Report
