Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2015


Pretty ugly sand slog up the chute on the south face. Great views from the summit though. I descended the same way which went quickly then hiked over Shepherd Pass to camp near the base of Junction Peak for the next day.

Part of a 4 day solo trip to Center Basin. The talus maze at the bottom was fun and the scree slog up the N face not very bad at all. The view from the top in any direction is outstanding. Underrated.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2010


Was nearly mauled by ladybugs on top, not the worst event I've been through. Really enjoyed the views to the south and the stay in Center Basin.

Took a scree chute directly up to the north ridge from lake 3592, then followed the ridgecrest up. Glissided down the northeast face.

A decent consolation prize after dropping out of the hunt for Milestone and Midway. High winds but splendid views at the top.

Second part of a Sierra Challenge twofer. The route is much nicer than it looks: stay to the right on the way up for stable blocks, and the right on the way down for speedy sand. A great view of Shepherd Pass, Williamson, and Tyndall, and a nice mini-biography of Mr. Keith in the register canister.

My buddy and I had a very nice climb in spring, climbing mostly on snow. It was partly cloudy and a bit chilly that day. I recall climbing through some cloud cover and suddenly realizing we were on the summit.

Welcome to my page. Hope it inspires someone else to follow in my footsteps up this monstrous sub 14er peak. It was a gorgous day and I reached the summit in 2.5hours from Golden Bear Lake. First person to sign the summit log since August 2002, booyah. A route description is on the way.
