Date Climbed: Sep 26, 2010


Climbed the East Chute with my good friend Adam Foley. The chute was a bit loose, and not so fun coming down. It was a warm clear day on the summit. Great views of Whitney. Camped at Meysan Lake.

Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2009


Tried Secor's suggested class 3 direct route, but ended up countouring way East. A tiring sand slog at the end of a Le Conte-Corcoran-Mallory-Irvine traverse, but the summit was a nice place for a short nap.

chudderUp East Couloir, down East Chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2009


Fun day on Mt. Irvine from a camp on the moraine above Meysan Lake. The East Couloir was firm in the morning under cloud cover with a cold wind and light snow. On top, I got some fleeting views of the surrounding peaks, excluding Whitney, when the clouds would momentarily clear. The sun only came out in time to soften the top few inches of the East Chute on my descent, making for a wet downclimb and glissade. Crossed paths with a friend I hadn't seen in 14 years who was descending the trail after an aborted attempt at Lone Pine Peak due to low visibility.

bighornmonkeyGreat climb...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 3, 2009


Climbed the East Couloir of Mt Irvine from a camp near Grass Lake, then traversed over (2h) to Mallory sticking to the ridge.
Very windy and cold weekend, but awsome glissage down to Meysan Lake

96avs01Splitn the E Chute  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 18, 2009


Splitboard descent of the East Chute. Hoped to traverse to Mallory before descending the E. slope, but had to abort as the snow was turning into crap. The activity around the Portal reminded me of why I avoid that area like the plague in the summer.

Solo dayhike linkup of Irvine, Mallory, and LeConte. Great day!

Decided to try the chute just left of the East Couloir (the Class 4 East Couloir from Secor's book). At the fork I headed to the right and it got a bit interesting...a 20 ft crux section that wasn't difficult climbing (I'd say 4th class or at most easy 5th), but the rock was horrible and crumbly. After making it through that it was 2nd class all the way to the summit.

Left a new summit log on top and continued on to Mallory.

with Vendulka. First peak of the day. The chute wasn't as loose as I was afraid. Great views of the Whitney crest.

sierramtngoatEast Couloir/NE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2007


Climbed the loose and snowless East Couloir with buddies Becket and Marc to about 13,200, at which point we scrambled to the NE ridge; I've got to say the upper part of the NE ridge is a fun scramble; I'd rate it class 3.

Perfect day for an easy scramble. Surprisingly little wind. The chutes on this peak suck. They're full of loose scree and larger rocks that are very difficult to walk on. The ridges are classic Sierra scrambling. Excellent views of the entire Whitney area. Worth the effort.

Desert SolitaireOnly the East side of this peak is interesting  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2006

Desert Solitaire

McAdie-Mallory-Irvine loop from Consultation Lake. Total RT time: 11 hrs, 30 min after much routefinding mistakes on the traverse to Mallory. Secor has a warning about descending from the West side: "warning: as a descent route, this gully is impossible to find" - well, whaddaya know - I had no beta on the descent and was lucky enough to find this gully! Next time will climb the awesome looking E. Buttress.

Perfect day -- more snow than expected. Easy climb to NE ridge from Camp Lake (Meysan Basin) than Class 2 to the top (dodging the deep snow drifts)
