bradbSouth Slopes Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2009
Started at Mono Pass TH before dawn, easy to follow trail to Mono pass, left trail just short of the pass and climbed up steep scree slope to ridgeline, followed occasional faint use trail. Backtracked down and continued on to Mount Lewis via Parker Pass. I think Mt Gibbs was more difficult then Mt Dana.

Traversed from Mt. Dana; nice bit of class 3 towards the top, otherwise a talus slog. Descended west slope back (seemingly never ending talus) to Mono Pass trailhead, and hoofed it on 120 back to Tioga Pass.

Excellent views and perfect weather.

Nice relaxing climb... maybe too relaxing. I fell asleep on top and woke up with a serious sunburn on my unprotected face (blisters! ouch!). I had used sunscreen that morning, but neglected to re-apply before my nap. That has never happened again!

A very nice peak, even though the never-ending talus is a little exhausting :) Also, we did go a little too far into the Mono Pass instead of starting off much earlier and climbing the W ridge, this would have been much faster.

Day-hiked Gibbs as a warm up for Mt Langley the next day. Left with Aj and Commando Tang from Mono Pass TH. Went off trail to ascend the West Ridge. Enjoyed a beer at the summit. Aj developed several blisters on this hike and abandoned attempt to do Langley the next day.

Dropping down from the summit of Dana to the saddle below Gibbs I ascended a ridge to the summit. I was back to my car by 5:30 p.m. and back home in San Francisco by 11:30.

Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2007

Peak Baguette

Never got the memo that I was supposed to double bag Gibbs with Dana. I followed some crazy trail down the west side that must have been blazed by some gravity-defying yogic marmot.... thankfully, no one saw me "glissade" down the scree on my butt. Didn't see a register. Trail was empty - good that there was no one around to hear me singing the Bee Gees greatest hits as I climbed.

Took the "fun" route after summiting Mount Dana from the common saddle. Nice to hit some solid rock on the NE side (some not so solid) towards the summit after the gobs of loose rock and scree. Walked the long NW ridge down to the Mono Pass trail and walked back to Tioga Pass via the road. Good Whitney warmup hike.

Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2005
Stopped on Dana only long enough to sign the register (surprised to see one on Dana - had to sign the cover since it was so full), then proceeded on to Gibbs, then back to SR 120 and 3mi of road-walking back to Tioga Pass.

Nice dayhike from Mono Pass TH. I seem to be one of the few who didn't do the Gibbs-Dana double header.

Couldn't find a summit register.

My first (gasp) off trail experience. I was totally overprepared, if there is such a thing, but I used it to practice compass and map skills and match them up with what I could see. Overall, a fun solo trip.

Hiked up to peak 12,568 and traversed southwest to Gibbs and then down to Mono Pass. Climbed Mt. Lewis the next day. Didn't see another soul other than a backcountry ranger (hmm, do they count as being "souls"?)

Did on a long (by my standards) solo trek of Dana and Gibbs. Slight scramble up Gibbs was fun, particularly haulting my big 5 pound tripod. Something like 8 hours ctc from near Tioga Pass.

A great day. Saw only a few people on the trails and no one on the mountain. Trip Report Here.
