Climbed this peak after hiking up Cherry Creek Canyon from Cherry Lake. The canyon was amazing, especially with all the water from the heavy winter. From Styx pass this is a short climb with some good views.
Route Climbed: West Slope (ascent) / South Slope (descent) Date Climbed: June 6, 2003 Date Climbed: Jun 6, 2003
June 6, 2003: Hiked up the granite staircase on the west slopes, then descended the south slopes. This was a short sidetrip during an early season visit to Cherry Creek Canyon (IMO, the most beautiful place I've seen in the Sierra). Nice views for very little effort.
July 22, 2006: Stopped up here again while on my way to Haystack Peak and Schofield Peak, on an ambitious loop overnighter. Stunning views again.
