Solo climb from a bivy at Bishop Pass. Hiked into Palisade Basin (over ThunderBolt Pass) after the Agassiz climb. How nice !!

Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2010


Went up the inviting chute at the base of the largest lake atop Bishop pass. Much lose rock in the actual chute. About 3/4 the way up, the chute ends at a dark wall. It took some short class 4 climbs to get over the ridge into the next chute to the north, but easy class 2 to the summit. Coming down, followed a steeper chute on the north side that led into a snow patch. Much better choice for going up I would think. Solid class 2 the whole way. This route ends with a giant boulder in the middle of nowhere between the large lake and the small lake to the north. It's hard to miss.

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 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.
