wmollandS Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 2, 2012


A snowy ascent up the South Ridge. The snow made what was likely an uneventful ascent much more exciting. Great views from the top, all in all a fun fall peak.

Nice dayhike from Quartz Mountain TH via Chiquito Pass and Moraine Meadows. This route is with ~11 miles quite a bit shorter than the 16 miles mentioned on the mountain page. Nice scrambling with great views along the ridge. Nothing harder than class 2.

Woke up at Lake 10425 after climbing Gray Peak the day before, up Red Peak in the morning, followed the ridge from Red Peak Pass over Ottoway Peak and up to Merced (happy to drop the full pack for the first time at the saddle before Merced. From Merced on to Triple Divide, then back to Upper Ottoway Lake for the night before hiking out the next day.

A smoky day in the Sierra with plenty of mosquitoes, but still a fun outing. Trip Report

Merced Pk-Red Pk dayhike from the Quartz Mtn TH. While not a stellar climb, Merced Peak boasts some very nice summit views--I spent much longer than I'd intended up there soaking them in on a glorious fall day. Red Peak, on the other hand, has no redeeming qualities. Ugh.

From Upper Ottoway Lakes, Ray and I scrambled up to Merced Peak then over to Triple Divide Peak. The scramble down to the north was a bit sketchy over some steep snow (sans crampons), but we finally made it back to the Red Peak Trail which brought us up over the pass and back to our campsite.

I did this as part of a two and a half day trip from Mono Meadows. A great part of Yosemite and a nice scramble.
