Attempted the exposed East Arete, complete with loose early season snow...made it to 13,800 before exhaustion and sketchiness got the best of us. Will return!

Tricky finding class 3 route around the headwall.
Tried 2nd and 3rd chute to right of headwall, but
couldn't get through. Finally had success on diagonal
to left of headwall.

Day 10 of the 2010 Sierra Challenge. The traverse from Morgenson is a tad scary! Trip Report.

Dayhike, turned back at 13.8k due to treacherous winter conditions. I guess we'll have to go back in the summer.

Dayhike with Vitaliy up the east ridge after a visit to Carillon. Very enjoyable route- will do again sometime.

Up Cleaver Col and down the standard scree slope.

Nice peak, nice ridge, nice views. The way down didn't seem as memorable as the way going up. Would like to try to fishhook

Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2010


Great day with MM. Only downside was a guide and 2 clients jumped ahead at the short cut at end of pitch 3 as I was seconding up pitch 1; we caught them by pitch 7; but let it go. Just sayin...

Dayhiked E Ridge, via Nirth Fork route and bagged Carillon on the way down. Still a lot of snow for the end of June this year.

Great Climb! Very cold so opted to start directly under the notch. Sun hit arete at 8:15 and started climbing at 8:30. Comfortable temps and very little wind. Summitted at 1:45 and back at Upper Boy Scout Lake via East Ridge at 4:15. Snow on approach to Iceberg lake and from Iceberg lake to Whitney/Russell pass. Everything else clear of snow. Small patch on N side of E. Summit on descent.

"Are we done yet? I'm tired of being scared." Can't wait to go back and grab the north ridge.

Glad to finally get onto this classic route, tons of fun, one to repeat for sure. Caught the Normal Clyde exhibit in Independence two days previous, pretty cool since Clyde did the first ascent of the E. Ridge solo...

Enroute from Giant Forest to Lone Pine I crossed Russell-Carillon Pass and did the East Ridge. Fantastic climb on a great mountain! I even got to sign the old 1932 register which still had several blank pages at the time. What an honor!

Snagged a walk-in permit and camped at Upper Boyscout Lake, climbed the route the next day. Didn't really stay directly on the ridge much, probably should have because it wasn't that exciting lower down.
