Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2015


Don't think I've ever talked so much (with my dayhiking partners) than on this dayhike, one of the side effects of being a self-proclaimed and real life hermit.

Nice outing with perfect conditions over Treasure Col and found the basin on the other side east of Mount Johnson to be well work the slightly circuitous route. Only took about half a day but really enjoyable.

Front-pointing in trail runners sucks. I would have been happier in boots and with two tools, but it wasn't that sketchy, and sure beats the slog from Treasure Col. Trip report

fatdadNorth Couloir (what else?)  Sucess!


Simul-climbed this with Robert Hanson in July in the early-mid '90s. Hard neve to actually some blue ice up high. Let a bottle of gin cooling in Treasure Lakes for martinis back at camp.

Instead of climbing Treasure Col I climbed Peak 12,600 which is to the right of the Col, Class 3, there was a register there left by an SPS party in 1981, then I did the slog up to Gilbert, then to peak 12,800 South of Gilbert, then the N. Ridge of Johnson, very fun day.

Fun climb, although the ice wasn't 'in' yet - just a smattering if ice beneath very cruddy and irregular neve. Harrington Couloir on Mt Thompson was in much better condition. The climb at the top was fun - the 5.6 variation was fun, although very short.

Climbed the North Couloir with Dennis Richards up beautiful neve and then up the 4th class (never encountered any ~5.6) to the summit.

Climbed with Peter Doucette. Hard neve and alpine ice filled the couloir. Clear, cool Fall weather. Spicey low class 5 descent of the east ridge to a notch finished off by 1 rappel down to the north face morraine field.

Simulsolo with Joe LeMay, who turned up serendipitously at the base of the snowfield when Mark Thomas, Mike Ybarra and I arrived. Good neve conditions mostly, with a few annoying patches of hard, brittle ice and some fresh snow. Good climbing, great summit.

Although we took climbing hardware (6 screws, 4 cams, mixed set of nuts and hexes, carabiners, quickdraws, cordolettes, and runners) and a 9.8mm x 60m rope, Tom Hartger and I ended up soloing the North Couloir in about 1hr 20min under "cruising" conditions - perfect neve (firn). We each had 2 tools. The 4th class ramp/low angle dihedral people talk about looked like 3rd class to me. We started at the base of the couloir at 8:20am and summited two hours later at 10:20am. There was not even a single cloud in the sky, sunny, a bit breezy....just a beautiful day in the Sierras.

Matthew Holliman

Climbed steep snow chute leading to notch by Pk 12640+, and followed the ridge to summit. There was somewhere between 6"-12" of fresh powder atop the Sierra Crest, which made the going a bit tedious.

Traversed over to Mt. Johnson on the way back, which was great fun--excellent class 3.
