Route Climbed: South Slopes via Old Army Pass Date Climbed: July 9, 2001
Single day ascent of this really easy ~21 mile hike. I raced t-storms the whole way, but they never got me. The sandy upper slopes of the mountain were a little frustrating, but the summit was worth it. Car-to-car time: 6 hours and 7 minutes.

Summited and returned in under 24 hours. We camped at the southwesternmost Cottonwood Lake beneath Old Army Pass after a 4 hour hike in. The next morning we made the summit in three hours. Great views of Mount Whitney and Muir to the North.
