DaveWillmottRoute Climbed: Francis Lake Date Climbed: September 13, 2004  Sucess!


Our group of 10 took the Francis Lake trail that is advertised as 1.75 miles but must be 3 miles based upon the time it took to hike up and back down from this point. At Lake Francis we climbed the ridge line from the front edge of the lake rather than the back end essentially going up the right side of the ridge instead of the left. Based upon the descent down via the back end of the lake we were all happy that we did this. This ridge which is a moraine is strewn with interesting rocks. From the ridge we hiked directly to a low point between the high ridge line on the right and the ridge line leading to the peak. The views were spectacular.

ridgelineRoute Climbed: From Francis lk Date Climbed: August 15 2004


From trailhead at 7.35 ran to francis by 8.40, late start and clouds were moving in quickly. Straight up the drainage and to the ridge, the boulders suck ! at about 10.30 it was looking bad, on the ridge at 11.07 moving fast from adrenaline, 11.30 first crack of thunder and a lightening strike had to retreat for safety a stones throw from the summit.

Great views of Little Lakes Basin and surrounding peaks. Watched thundertorms roll through Humphreys Basin until they chased me off the summit.

A better "climb" than I was expecting, with excellent views. I found stable talus on a small rib on the north slopes, making for a quick ascent route; on my descent, I found very loose, unstable boulders on the talus slopes to its west. I would recommend sticking with the rib.

The north facing snow chutes leading up the north slope provide for excellent spring snow climbing (30-35 degrees). Day hiked via this route from Rock Creek Lake. returned in time to catch a couple of trout for dinner - a perfect day in the Sierra

cragRoute Climbed: Lake Francis Trail Date Climbed: June 20, 2003  Sucess!


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.
