bechttGrand Loop  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 18, 2013

Day 3 of the alt Sierra Challenge 2013. While the hard core Challenge nuts crossed the crest at Echo Col and head for bad weather on the Black Divide, seven of us (Laura, Joan, Tommey, Carol, Jeff, Jim, and I) headed for Ski Mountaineers peak first followed by Mt Thompson via its tricky but highly satisfying north ridge. Once on top, Tommey continued on to Pt Powell while the others returned the way they came. I continued the grand loop by dropping down Thompson's horrible SE chute and climbing the only weakness (a class 2 chute) on Mt Gilbert's west side. Bypassing the summit due to bad weather (and having climbed it before), I climbed over Mt Johnson (with thunderstorms both north and south of me) before returning via the Treasure Lakes basin.

Climbed this as an alternate (easier) peak on day 4 of Burd's 2012 Sierra Challenge. Went up the sandy chute on the southeast slope -- described as class 2 by Secor, but the top 100-200 feet seemed to me to be class 3. Easy climbing but no exposure. I was the 6th person to sign the register this year.

Over from Bishop Lake to Treasure Lake and up the east ridge. I do not recommend this route.

A fun scramble from Treasure Col after doing Gilbert's north couloir. Suncups weren't as bad as I feared on the way down. Trip report

The skeeters devoured me at Treasure Lakes, the sun-cups, kicked my ass, but the ridge was worth it. The ridge is harder 3rd, sometimes very exposed, and requires good route finding. I descended the Southeast Slopes for an easy quick escape.

From Treasure Lakes. I was aiming for the quickest way out of all those boulders, so I chose the northeast ridge. Fun scrambling near the top.

Climbed S. face of peak 12,600 just N. of Johnson first,fun cl. 3 climb with a 70's register. Then it was off to Gilbert and peak 12,800. I then traversed back to Treasure Col and climbed the N. Ridge of Johnson which was as good as advertised.

2008 Sierra Challenge. After climbing Trapezoid Peak I started to traverse the connecting ridge but this turned out to be quite tedious and slow (maybe I was just not in the mood any more for much more ridge climbing). So I dropped down into the cirque and ascended the SE slope.

Quite the talus slog up the Treasure Lakes drainage. Probably would have been more enjoyable earlier in the year with more snow. Sandy slopes made for a quick descent.

Climbed talus to the right of sandy slopes on way up. Sandy slope on the way down. More loose rock than sand.

Climbed the north ridge solo via Treasure Col on an absolutely beautiful Fall day. Conditions in the Col were brittle water ice covered with sugar snow from a recent storm. Stayed on the crest of the ridge all the way to the summit. Great 3rd class rock. Because the knife edge section gaining the summit was partially covered with snow, I traversed it chevalier style (one leg draped over each side of the ridge).

Solid snow at 10,500 ft. Merciless 2-3 ft sun cups from there up to 11,800 ft. Snow and lightning storm while on the 3rd class ridge.

Our route was the north couloir, which is not described by Secor. It is the snowfield on the west side of the north face, under the "33" on 7.5' topos. Very nice access to summit if it is snow-filled and the entire 3rd class ridge is not your thing . It gains the ridge about 250 ft below the summit. The remaining ridge would be great fun in dry weather! Descended the SE Slope.
