Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2012


Sierra Challenge 2012 Day 1. Hiked to far on the really nice trail and ended up one basin too far west. A beautiful day so the extra mileage, gain, and loss didn't matter.

JimmyjaijaiCirque Headwall of the South Ridge 1975  Sucess!
Reminiscing from my ashram in the Himalayas. When I was a young and foolish man, I solo freeclimbed the vertical East face of the South ridge (West of Alpine Lake) at the head of Timberline Valley (Hall Natural Area) just West of Saddlebag Lake. I was visiting my friend ornithologist Dr Dave Desante and his research crew of whacky twitchers at the Carnegie Institute cabin in the Hall Natural Area just under Mount Conness. One day I wandered up to the headwall. A vertical chute 3 to 8 feet wide and as deep (as I recall) runs about 1000 feet staight up the vertical cirque headwall to the South ridge. It looked very enticing with nice cracks galore so I climbed on. After 20 feet of course, no going back--free climb on or free fall off. Mad skillz required--fist, elbow, knee, finger, body jams de rigour for the duration. I remember with particular vividness a lay-back body jam, to an ankle jam, to a finger jam, to a fist jam, to a short rest on a 5 inch wide ledge. So on for a thousand feet, straight up and stoned (why else would anybody do such a thing). Not for the faint-hearted, the rational or the married-with-children. But what a grand feeling to be on horizontal stone again, at ease with gravity and on top of the world!

A long time brewing, this one. It was worth the wait. Adventurous yet easy climbing in such a dramatic position made for a really enjoyable voyage.

Climbed N Ridge with Jake on an SMG trip; great fun and not as hard as it looks in the photos. We used a running belay for most of the technical climbing.

Date Climbed: Sep 16, 2011


From Sawmill meadow. Someone went to great effort to place rocks like stair-steps up the last narrow section (from the plateau toward the summit). However these have fallen off in a couple of short sections that as a result felt closer to class 3 than class 2.

Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2011


Lots of snow for this time of year. We saw a green tent on the summit plateau-- and didn't realize till we were back home, that it belonged to a Vegas friend who was climbing the SW face! Good thing we didn't follow through on our plan to rifle through the tent for money. Storm clouds and snow sent us home before N Peak.

Vertigo soul

Not sure why I didn't do this one before. Probably one of the most beautiful places in the Sierra I've seen, and the route was just pure fun! Great quality rock and easier than I thought it might be. Definitely want to go back!

Fun scramble/climb. Lucky enough to meet some guys to climb the upper part roped but wasn't really necessary.

calipidderSouth Slope + East Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 4, 2010


Approached from Sawmill Campground - took south slope on way up (via sandy/gravelly pass) and came down via some weird distortion of the East Ridge route.

Loved the last little ridge to the summit - what fun!

Absolutely amazing! Solid rock and sustained interesting climbing. The downclimb crux on the north ridge is quite a bit easier than 5.6. Trip report
