Nice long Class 3/4 scramble from LLP. Climbed Morgan summit block from south side, that sure felt 5th Class to me! Descent down to Hidden Lakes was a nightmare of scree, tallus, and 4th/5th Class down climbing - not so cool when solo.

From Little Lakes valley with Jon G. Do not go up this way as the rock near the top of the chutes is really loose.

Vic HansonTrailhead?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 30, 2012

Vic Hanson

We got to Rock Creek Lake just before dark and missed the trailhead on the way in. We drove all the way to the end of the road and camped there near the outhouse, but no one knew where the TH was. In the morning I checked Goggle Maps and saw that the TH was before that so we walked back and found it. Then we somehow missed the sign and trail to Francis Lake, which we realized when we got to the Dorothy Lake junction sign. After backtracking and finding the correct trail it was an easy and uneventful hike to the summit, mostly able to follow the use trail all the way up.

A last minute decision to dayhike this peak with minimal beta, but ended up great. Unacclimated so moving slowly, but the route was excellent - fun and easy. The trick was skipping the Francis drainage and moving straight up the ridge and sand. Coming down was fast and fun in the sand. Amazing views, great day. No register though. :(

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2012


Three of us left the trailhead around 8:00am and got to the summit just before Noon. Intermittent rain and storm clouds appeared just as we started to descend from the summit. Then just as we got back in the car at the trailhead, torrential rains started.

A bit less than five hours to the top from the Tamarack Lake trailhead near Rock Creek Lake (or 3.5 hours from Francis Lake).
Almost no boulder hopping if you find a proper route. I followed Harry Langenbacher's advice. Three hours back to the trailhead. Incredible views! Both the register and its container are stolen.
A brief trip report is available.

Decided on Morgan after canceling Middle Pal plans. Dayhiked with Tang. Tremendous views on the ridge and summit.

The boulder-hopping got tedious after a while, but otherwise a perfect day in the mountains. Spectacular summit views.

Very high summit, great view of many distant peaks, perfect weather, good access (if you know how to avoid the boulder fields and loose talus). A great way to spend a Sunday with my brother.

Didn't see anyone all day, except for three bighorn sheep. Great views. Much, much more rock than I thought though. Advise maybe doing this early season when there is snow, avoid some of the nasty boulder fields.

With Dave McLaughlin. An enjoyable slog (a paradoxical phrase?) up a mountain of significant height and a great view.

Followed BCL's decent tracks (see below) for much of the ascent. Perfect weather/views. Managed to avoid much of the talus on the decent by staying higher and sticking to the snow where I could.

Commanding views of the Little Lakes region redeem this otherwise uninterseting route.

After a questionable start to the day at Tioga Pk, I thought there might be thunderstorms, rain, hail or snow, but everything turned out fine.
