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.

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.

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.

Climbed the talus shoot. Great views on top. Vowed to avoid class 2 talus on future endeavors.

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!

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.
