Pulled this great route off in winter of 2009 with my good buddies Nate Ricklin and Scotty Nelson. We did it a 29 hour push with two brew stops.

Very windy and cold. On the summit it was hard to stand up. Had to hide in the rocks. I think it was the second storm of the season. This combination of wind and cold made the scree easy hike in a round-trip time of 3 hours, from below Grass Lake.

...if you love it, climb this peak!! Took enough down in my boots to start my own mountain.
The views off the top make the slog worth it.
Oh yeah climbed the NW Slope

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2008


Great day, a little on the warm side, no wind, mosquitoes followed us from the creek all the way to the North Ridge. Long day of easy to moderate climbing with spectacular scenery and big exposure. The descent sucks, not hard but a slog in sand and rock scree. But I'll take 7 hours of fun climbing and 30 minutes of scree any day.

Date Climbed: Mar 3, 2008


Climbed Autumn Ledges with Kostas on March 2-3, 2008 in what we believe is the FWA of the route. The approach and first pitch to the fir tree required crampons and ice axes but above that we were in rock shoes the whole way to the summit.

In reference to poorboy44's post above: he was definitely off route, see route page for more info.

got my head bashed in by a rock let loose by the party above...that was a little too close for comfort! Other than that, it was a great day and a nice climb.

Date Climbed: Dec 23, 2007

Climbed the North Ridge with Anthony B. Hiked in on Saturday via the Meysan Lakes trail, breaking trail with snow up to about 12 inches deep until we gained the ridge below the notch. Gained the ridge and found a good bivy location just above the notch. Sunday we climbed to the summit, belaying and simul-climbing as necessary. Descended the wrong chute and used 4 rappels to get down to the lakes. Found another bivy location and stayed here for the night. Monday morning we hiked out to the car, wading through snow up to waist deep in many places until the snow depths became much more enjoyable below 10K. Great weekend in the mountains!

Simul-solo with Michelle (just under 9 hrs car-to-car). Back at the Whitney Portal Store by 1PM for homemade fries!

Route Climbed: North Ridge
Date Climbed: November 18, 2006

Climbed the north ridge with awagher. Encountered some hard snow on the route but it was possible to bypass most of it. Left Meysan Lake T/H parking lot just before 4:00a.m. Roped up for 3 pitches this time due to snow conditions. For some reason, we were both dragging ass (well, maybe not drinking enough water, the heavier pack due to colder conditions & climbing with mountain boots had something to do with it). I didn't top out until basically 2p.m. (10 hrs trailhead to summit). Waited an hour for Andrew to top out. We lost some time on the descent by taking the wrong chute and had to climb back up (we didn't want to face multiple raps, epic, etc). Found the regular NW slope descent but was painful because the ground was frozen (couldn't plunge-step on the frozen dirt/scree). Back to our car by 7p.m. (15 hrs car-to-car).

Route Climbed: North Ridge
Date Climbed: July 29, 2006

Climbed with Rick Kent. Our plan was to wake up at 3:30a.m., however, a few late night sprinkles (were sleeping on the open) woke us up at 2:45a.m. or so. So, we left the Meysan Lake trailhead parking lot at 3:30a.m. We got to the 10,000-foot level cut-off just before twilight and decided to take a break here to wait for daylight. First tower is easily bypassed on the left with a 4th class downclimb on the other side. Crux is the 5.6 right-facing lieback (the one with 2 pitons) on the 2nd tower on the right. This was the only place we roped up. We managed to climb it as one single 50-meter pitch. At the 3rd tower, we followed a sandy path on the right for 100 yards or so and then went up from there on 3rd & 4th class rock to the summit. We topped out at 11:30a.m (8 hrs trailhead to summit). Warm day. Left summit just after 12:00p.m. and were back to our cars just before 3:00p.m. (11.5 hrs car-to-car). Excellent burger and home-made fries at the Whitney Portal Store (WPS) afterwards.

Route Climbed: Traverse from Mt. LeConte
Date Climbed: September 10, 2005

Third (and last) peak of the day on my solo link-up of Mallory/LeConte/Lone Pine Peak. Left the Meysan trailhead at 5:00am. Summited Mallory at 10:01am, summited LeConte at 11:12am and finally Lone Pine Peak at 2:00pm. Waited 1/2 hour at the summit for jlemay and 2 SCMA students (Jeff and Mike) to top out from the north ridge. Then, I stayed with them until Grass Lake at which time I looked at my watch and it was 4:10pm; then, I took off running down the Meysan trail so that I could make it in time to the Portal to get Doug's homemade french fries (the kitchen closes at 6pm). Got there at 5:35pm.
