3rd-classed my way up the south side of the east ridge, opposite the hourglass, on final day of 7-day backpack. Trip report.

Hiked in to Long Lake, then snowshoed up to Treasure Lakes, where we set up base camp. After night thunderstorms, we went up the Hourglass to the summit, then back to camp and hiked out. Long day, but totally worth it. Seeing the High Sierra under some snow was a treat.

It's a low-snow year and there were rocks coming down Hourglass -- turned back. Will have to try again when there's more snow to hold things in place.

First peak of the day with Mark and Pat which included Dade, Pipsqueak Spire and Bear Creek Spire. The Hourglass was completely snow free. The bottom half wasn't too bad, but the top was a miserable sandy, loose slog.

A day hike from Box Lake, about 10 hours total. The snow is gone in the upper part of the Hourglass, and there was some pretty serious postholing in the lower part, particularly on my way back. The snow-free part of the couloir is ugly and tedious, but doable if you really have to get to the plateau. Must have been much more enjoyable earlier in the season. An easy ascent from the plateau to the summit, no obstacles. About 12 parties have signed up the summit register this year, the first group in the first week of January. The last visit last year was on Dec 31, 2011!

With Ann. A very enjoyable romp up the Hourglass. Fresh snow made filled the voids between the boulders on the upper Class 2 section and made it more tedious.

Climbed after Abbot. Bergschrund was easily crossed on left, then maybe 700' of steep snow/ice, with a bulge between rocks that maybe was AI 2. Great conditions. Rock above was very loose 3rd/4th class however. Climbed solo, used two tools, but only swung overhead on the bulge and near the top. Back to Dade Lake via the Hourglass.

With Darren Shutt. There was still enough snow to form a 50 degree snow-ramp ascending about 700 feet from the glacial cirque. That put us within one pitch of the summit ridge over mixed snow and rock. Snow was breakable crust at points, making for some sketchy stances, though overall pretty good. Rock can be loose.

Fun route with an airy snow-covered summit, hardly a soul around!

Climbed via the hourglass. Classic route!! Very different than when we climbed a few years back. Slope above the hourglass covered with unconsolidated snow, (instead of a class 2 rock scramble) took a bit more time to pick and choose route. All in all another great weekend in the sierra.

camped at long lake with fishing friends. no snow in hourglass to climb, so it was a real loose slog. glad the views were so good as that helped compensate, and the scree slide down wasn't as bad as feared.
