Talus scramble from Bishop Pass. Great views of the Palisade Group. Previous group up the same route brought a large dog with them that had as much fun scrambling as we did.

It's a long slog but the view is worth it. Climbed with my girlfriend in 12hrs roundtrip (we are obviously not hardcore mountain climbers). Coming from San Diego the day before, the altitude gain was quite rough. Photos and Trip Report

Climbed with Ryan. Great view south -- Middle Pal, which we climbed the day after, is just peeking through between Mt Sill and North Pal. Pictures

4th day of the Sierra Challenge. I was looking for an easier day than the challenge peak. It was a bit of a talus slog from the pass, but had great views.

Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2006


Dan and I climbed a chute directly above the lake beyond Bishop Pass, and positioned ourselves on an arete that was no more than class 3. It was a bit of a slog up the chute, but it wasn't an epic slog.

Date Climbed: Jul 14, 2006


Vlad and I had come to the Palisades last weekend to do a traverse from Thunderbolt Peak via the North Couloir to Mt Sill. As we had made our approach to camp the day prior extra fast, we decided to quickly climb Agassiz via the NE Face (II, 5.2).

Long story short, we got off route, climbed really dangerous loose rock (I dislodged a desk-sized one by hand-jamming it) and ended up on the summit at midnight, with recently refrozen snow making our descent to the east notch difficult without crampons. After a night of downclimbing around the snow and cliffs, we made it back to camp at 6am. All in all, we had been on the move for 20 hrs since leaving the trailhead!

The route had some stout 5.8 cracks, one overhanging, one offwidth, and one requiring a strong layback.

Class 2 route still snowfilled, so climbed the rocks to the right of it for a mostly class 3 ascent. It was a long 12 1/2 day from the trailhead at South Lake.

Climbed the leftmost chute with three others, mostly in snow. Pass was still completely buried. Conditions were excellent, weather was perfect. Wished we had crampons with us though. Had the mountain - and the whole Bishop Lake area - to ourselves.

Another spectacular Sierra Peak! Hiking to Agassiz was an unexpected bonus for me. I went to meet some buddies to go fishing and I ended up on the summit of Agassiz. Special thanks to Bob & Phil for the favorable interpretation of the rules of the annual "Octoberfish" event that allowed us to hike during the high holy days of fishing. I did catch 3 fish at Long Lake on the hike out.
