A fun climb. Great views of Mt. Abbot (1989) and Mt. Tom (1991). Climbed with Christine and Juli. Got chased off the summit by a thunderstorm.

Sierra Club Peak Climbing Section private trip - 6 women. we camped at Francis Lake and stuck to the ridgeline for some fun easy bouldering. All made it to the top. I had a fall on the way down and dove head first into a boulder - ouch! Thunderbumpers built up and we plunge-stepped as quickly as we could most of the way down the sandy drainage where we could. Much harder than I expected but I'm out of shape from a protracted injury recovery. Very fun trip!

Sierra Club outing. About 2.7 miles from Rock Creek Lake to camp at Francis Lake, then the sub-ridge to the main ridge and the top. Great viewing peak.

Fun climb. I found the terrain to be much better than I'd heard. Not very loose at all. I followed a gentle dry drainage up to the notch on the ridge and scambled up the stable talus from there. 3:15 up. Excellent views.

Perfect weather and spectacular views. The talus is usually wobbly which made for a suprisingly exhausting, but highly rewarding climb.

Miles of talus. Left the summit quickly under threatening skies. Great views of the LL valley region and BCS.

Desert Solitaire

Hard to believe that this peak is higher than the nearby Emblem Peak, Mt. Abbott. Great views on a fun warm up hike before climbing some other peaks in the area. The talus and scree wasn't that bad with good route-finding. I have a feeling I'll be visiting this peak again sometime.

About three hours to summit from RCL at a moderate pace. Nice little hike and great views. Decended a very loose and tedious class 2 chute to near Chicken Head Lake (Maybe the southern most chute between Morgan and LLP). Great View.

Backpacked to Francis Lake. The climb was easy but longer than I expected. Also not really class 1 as certain guidebooks might suggest. Great views of the area

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2006


Great Climbing Day! I followed Brent Taylor(my climbing partner)from the Rock Creek Lake parking lot via Francis Lake to a summit at 1pm after 6 hours. Descent took 3 hrs.
Three very experienced climbers (out of a party of 4) arrived about half an hour later. We all had good fellowship chatting about climbs, climbers and food cravings after climbs. I welcome any emails from all of them.

A long solo slog from Francis Lake over snow-covered talus. Forgot my gaiters....whoops! Noticed the impressive couloir on Feather Peak. One of the best summit views of any mountain I've ever climbed.

Talus sucked. Decided to take the steeper class 2 section up the second "step." Full of loose pecarious rock held in place by giant flakes. Scared I was going to be buried. Skirt around to the class 1 section.
