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

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.

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)

aleasureRoute Climbed: East Buttress V, 5.9 Date Climbed: 8-26-05  Sucess!
I thought this was just an OK route. Nice and long, but not sustained and not particularly great rock. I would also add that its more a grade IV than V. The approach is also more like 6 or 7 miles and not even close to the 3.5 Secor lists. Great views from an uninspiring summit. 14 hrs car to car.

Dayhike out of the Meysan Lakes TH, continuing on to McAdie and returning via the Whitney trail. Carried axe and crampons, but never used them all day. Irvine's NE Ridge was an easy but surprisingly enjoyable scramble, with some outstanding views in a truly beautiful area.

The Meyson Lakes trail is now my favorite trail in the Sierra; probably one of my favorite places to camp except for all the mosquitoes. There was lots of snow left up there from this last winter making for an fun trip up the couloir and great views of the surrounding peaks from the top.
