ocelotRoute Climbed: south ridge Date Climbed: September, 1997  Sucess!


I made a base camp in a high saddle above and SW of Convict Lake. I made a summit attempt from here up a horrendously loose scree couloir on the NW side. I got to the top of the couloir after much effort only to be turned around by a difficult loose looking class 4-5 ridge to the summit. The next day I circumnavigated the mountain, crossed a large snowfield, and climbed the south ridge with a class 3-4 variation. Nice climb; scarry loose rock everywhere! I climbed this peak previously in 1968 with my dad, in preparation for climbing in the Alps.

Day hiked from Convict Lake. Final approach difficult due to loose rocks. Great view from the summit.

Aside from the loose rock, this is a fairly easy peak to climb due to the short approach. I got a late start because I ran the Mammoth Lakes 10K in the morning, and it was pretty warm climbing up the lower slopes. I almost turned back due to apathy, but am glad I kept going. The views are pretty nice, too. Trip report
