Looks like we were the first people up this year. This is a beautiful summit, and we could see for hundreds of miles. Cheers.

We came from our camp at Mills Lake. Conditions were nice on the hard packed snow and then I remember hopping onto the rock section of the route. The next day, we went back to do Petit Grifon.

Climbed with Rick Stubblefield after climbing up from Mono Creek via the recesses. Don't remember much else, except that it wasn't as hard as it looked from the bottom!

Day hiked from Mosquito Flat TH - Fun Climb. Really loose rock exiting the couloir, but it got better and better the higher we climbed. I thought the ridge was a blast.

This was a long time ago! But I remember the route from Gabbott Pass being easier than it loooked from the bottom. Climbed with Rick Stubblefield.

Beautiful area and a great peak. Still good snow coverage - solid all the way in from Ruby Lake, no crampons needed. Snow stayed firm enough to walk out in late afternoon without postholing.

Not sure where the class 3 is; this all seemed class 2 to me. There was some crappy rock exiting from the snow, but the rest of the route really wasn't too loose, at least in comparison to Mills from a few days previously. Guess it helps to climb Mills to recalibrate one's expectations for Sierra routes. :-)

A great climb with Sam Mills and Samantha O. Thanks for breaking trail up that nasty soft stuff Sam! The exposed ridge climb was great fun.

A great outting with SummitPoster's Martin (mrolph) and Samantha (Samantha3). We hiked in from the locked gate at the Rock Creek Pack Station and summited on Saturday. We spent the night at high camp, and hiked out Sunday morning.

We have just retiurned from the trip to Mount Abbot in Rock Creek. The gate is still closed at the pack station, so it adsanother 1.5 miles one way before you reach the Mosquitoe Flat trailhead. Hiked up the Mono Pass to Ruby Lake (still frozen) and camped the small lake higher than MIlls Lake. Summited in 3:30 hrs from the base camp. The snow was well consolidated and there ws postholing at all. The snowline 10800-11000 ft.

Fun climb, can be done as long day trip from Mosquito Flat. As I remember, it was about 3 pitches with the last pitch (the hardest) being 5.5 - 5.7

Miguel Carmona and I climbed this interesting summit from our camp at Dade Lake. The approach couloir is 35-40 degree steep and in late season requires ice axe and crampons. There are really two spires at the col. We climbed the higher, western summit. From the col, climb up and around (steep 4th) to the SW side of the western summit. From the notch between the two summits, climb steep 5.7 edge to the summit. In 1996, the only note on the western summit, was in old film canister. It said that in 1964, Dave McDonald and David Harvey climbed the route. We descended to the Abbot/Petit Griffon Col, scrambled up to the summit of Abbot and went down the NE Couloir which is an ugly pile of dirt and rocks when not covered with snow. This would be a great day outing for anyone wanting to climb a nice, airy, technical climb in the area. Recommended.

Nice peak, but watch out for the loose sand and rock on the ledges to the right of the snowfield. I got konked in the head with a pretty good sized mountain missile.
