AceSierraOne of my favorites  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 2012


For a non-technical climber, this is one of my favorite peaks, at least for the views. Climbed the west slope, very enjoyable solid talus from about 1/3 the way up. Way better than the stuff on the University Peak north face route. Jaw dropping views of the Palisades. Peaks go on forever in every direction.

Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2013


Did this as a bit of a trail run from south lake. Went up the 2nd chute from the right as far as I was comfortable and then crossed over into the 1st chute from the right. Stayed class 2 all the way to the summit. Came down following the cairns and foot prints and had some class 3 down climbing below where I crossed on the way up. Beautiful day and wonderful views at the top. Car to car in about 7 hours. Not a record but good for this old man.

The summit log could use another large ziplock bag.

Great dayhike starting at 2pm at South Lake TH, fun scramble and really nice views of the southern end of the sierra on the summit. 8 hours roundtrip=good workout.

Weekend overnight backpack to Dusy Basin, climbed Agassiz since it's right off Bishop Pass. Chased down the slope by incoming storm, but luckily no lightning. Stupendous views of the Palisades from the summit.

This was the first peak in the Sierra I climbed, and the first peak I've climbed requiring route finding or scrambling. Not sure which route I took, definitely reached some sketchy areas and down climbed a few times, circumnavigating to the north and climbing up again. Great views at the top! Definitely learned some good lessons about route-finding. Took a more or less class 3 route up, mainly some class 2 near the base, and glissaded down part way sans ice axe.

Date Climbed: Aug 11, 2012


Dayhike up to Bishop Pass and then up the West Slope to the summit. Staying on the ridge to the right of the main chute offered some more solid climbing and easy, fun Class 3. Climbed Mt. Goode afterwards.

Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2012


I suspect I will be back soon to tag the summit. I was in the area unexpectedly after some vehicle repairs were needed in Bishop and ventured over Bishop Pass from South Lake without doing any homework for peakbagging. After skirting around the west and south slopes and scrambling almost all the way up the coluoir between Winchell and Agassiz, the dogs and I were no longer eager to scramble up the west slopes on the way out. The views were great regardless. Snow is almost gone...looks like late August pics I see from others.

Kindof stuck to the ridge from Bishop Pass, made for some nice easy class 3 moves- and really enjoyed the view from up top. Had been missing this peak for a long time.

PWeverkaNice climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2011
Nice climb with a friend and our two teenage boys. Started from our camp at Saddlerock Lake at 8:45 and hit Bishop pass about an hour later. We spent about 30 minutes trying to decide which chute to take, and finally took the normal chute and summitted at 12:15. Storms were coming in so we descended a few hundred feet for lunch, but were back to camp at about 3:00, just as the rain started.
We saw two other climbers descending as we were ascending. They had started from South Lake at 6:30 a.m. and spent about an hour at the top of Agassiz.

Three days before I thought my foot would be in cast for a month. Pro tip: Don't take vertigo-inducing medication before a trip to the Sierra.

I went right (S) of the normal chute for ascent; it went all the way to 13200', modest class 3. To me it was greatly preferable to balancing on boulders at a time when I had little balance.

DebAnother West Slope/Chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2011


Feeling under the weather with perfect weather. Long drawn out climb for me, didn't enjoy much of it but the views from summit were worth a few extra minutes. Puked at the base on descent under the watchful eye of a marmot. :P

Great views at the top, nice hike to Bishop Pass. Be sure to go up the right gully, I went up the wrong one and it was very loose and unpleasant. Even up the right gully it's a slog. 3:15 car to summit.
