Day hiked from Saddlebag Lake as an acclimatization exercize for Mt. Whitney with Gareth C. Mosquitos were out in force on approach. Near the top easy but airy for class 2. Great views.

Hiked in late Sat and slept a couple hundred feet below the summit. Descended to the toe of the west ridge on sunday morning and climbed the route. Beautiful day to climb it, with not a soul in sight. Good climbing. I was disapointed in the proximity of the easy climbing to the north, but as long as you stay on the edge, it is a fairly good climb.

Great route. Altitude got me, long descent in the dark.

Spent more time in the car than we did on the route. Climbed the East Ridge from Saddlebag Lake. Made a small mistake in following a use trail from the Experiment Station, but eventually found our way onto the ridge and the summit.

Fun dayhike. Started from the Sawmill Campground instead of Saddlebag Lake. Was a little disappointed in the quality of research being conducted at the Carnegie Institute Experimental Station. It's a pretty impressive name for an abandoned shack.

Climbed up the N.Ridge after summiting North Peak, along with Barry Beck and D.Rod. We took our time, as I wasn't sure what a summer at sea level and a year hiatus from climbing was going to allow. Fortunately, my body seemed up to the task of extended 4th-class scrambling, and, except for some rappel business at the second tower, the rope stayed in my pack. I used Tevas until the 4th-class sections on North Peak, and La Sportiva approach shoes after that. This was a great short climb, one that should not have been put off so long.

Climbed with Kris - started at 5am from Saddlebag Lake, got to col between N. Ridge Conness and North Peak around 8, atop second tower by 9:50, summit around 11:45.

Supertopo mentioned two raps from the second tower - we downclimbed the first 30' 5.5 rap, then Kris downclimbed the second 60' 5.6 rap. I chickened out and used the rope on the second rap instead of downclimbing. Oh well ...

Simul-soloed the remainder of the N. Ridge from there - very fun fourth and low fifth class. It would have sucked to pitch out this section, and probably taken a lot longer.

Brought 8.5mm x 50m half rope and a spartan rock rack, rock shoes, and didn't use any of it (except for the rope). Did entire route in approach shoes.

A bit of snow on the descent via Alpine Lake, but it was soft, suncupped and fairly low angle. Back to cars around 2:40pm.

Beautiful cloudless and pleasant day, with superb views from the top. We put a new notebook in the summit register, since DustysDawg advised us the existing logs were full. There was a section of rope affixed to the second rap station, which we removed and packed out.

Climbed with Rob (rhyang). Beautiful day, perfect weather, fun climb. We brought a rope and some gear, but didn't use it, downclimbing wasn't too bad. The section above the 2nd tower is fun, especially when you're right on the ridge with the sheer East wall below you.

This was my first real Sierra summit and since then I have returned many times. I have climbed this on different occasions with Mark Scrivner, Paul Rasmussen ('99), Fraser Street, Brian Zambrano ('04), and Seth Redmore. The North Ridge is an absolute delight, and I really can't wait to get on the west ridge. NR x3 w/ Marina, 7-26-09; NRx4 w/ the meetup 9-11-10; NRx5 w/ the meetup 9-17-11 (via NW Ridge of North Peak)
