hgrapidWonderful climb up - not so great down  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2010


This was a wonderful climb. It took about 1h 30 minutes from Bishop Pass to the summit. I had to wait for my other hiking buddies. The way down wasn't bad at first, but the lower slopes had some loose rocks, and it was quite difficult the further down towards Bishop Pass that I went. Still, a perfect day. Surprised I did not find a summit register.

Evening scramble from Bishop Pass. Signed the register at 6:40pm, had some great evening views, and scurried down just in time to avoid the dark!

With Al on the 8th day in came up from Dusy Basin which was a bitch. Took no time to summit from the top of the pass, but Al had enough and he waited there at the saddle. The hot springs and beers in Mammoth beckoned.

Iron HikerNew Altitude record  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2009

Iron Hiker

This was my first Sierra peak and the highest mountain I ever climbed until I did Whitney the next year. Ascended from Bishop Pass up the western slopes, and ran into some mild altitude sickness near the summit, but still made it and was enthralled by the spectacular views! Great introduction to the High Sierra.

Nice stable boulders and a great view of the Palisades. Best of all, the current summit register had cute kitties on the cover, and someone's grocery list on the inside. 2h20 from South Lake.

Climbed one of the steep chutes above the glacier. Lots of loose junk, but worth the effort for the view.

Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2009


Solo dayhike from South Lake. Felix felt ill, stayed back. Left at 6am. Got to base of mtn at 8am, summit by 11am, down to base of mtn at 1230pm and finally back to TH at 230pm, drove to Tahoe afterwards. 2000ft of scrambling was intense without gloves. My hands hurting for days afterwards. Fun.

Fun day climb from South Lake. Tried to keep it class 3 staying to the right of the class 2 chute...it looked like a lot of loose junk in there. Fun scramble. The views alone make this a worthy climb.

Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2006


Went up with my brother up from Bishop Pass, not realizing he'd never been on a serious talus slope before. He got spooked at about 13K' so we turned around.
