My first scramble was a lot of fun, had some route finding issues and had to backtrack a couple of times but really liked the scrambling aspect. Final few hundred feet were very enjoyable.

I hiked Conness, up the walkoff described in the supertopo guide. Starting at the Saddlebag Lake parking, then walking the trail out past the Carnegie Institute. NOT past Alpine lake, we went to the low point on the ridge between White Mountain and Conness.

If anyone happened to find a Canon A720 in a black leather bag, with a red climbing sling attached to it, I would really appreciate getting it back.

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.
