hgrapidBeat the storm  Sucess!
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.

My first Sierra peak. This is what got me hooked on climbing mountains! From Kenneth Lake.

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.

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!
