Route Climbed: Lake Francis Trail Date Climbed: June 20, 2003
Great view but a very tedious slog. Camped at Rock Creek Lake campground and hiked up via Lake Francis. Figured that descending the E slope into Little Lakes Valley would be quicker than the trail, that turned out to be a big mistake. The talus is very loose and going was very slow.
Route Climbed: From Francis Lake Date Climbed: July 8, 2001
The first nice day after three unusually rainy days in July. The climb is about as tedious as its reputation, but the views are pretty nice or so I'm told (sadly I was in the clouds for most of the time on the summit). Trip Report.
