Fun class 2 climb from Mono Pass. We headed for the ridge as early as we could. It was my second time up the peak both via the same route. We were hoping for Abbot but ominous clouds at 7am encouraged us to switch destinations when we got to Ruby Lake.

Nice hike up to Mono Pass with a stop at Ruby Lake on the way. There was snow for a hundred yards or so below the pass, but a solo packer had gone up and his tracks showed the way. I postholed at one point and scraped my leg pretty good on a hidden boulder. Despite the blood, I was happy because I knew that could have been a lot worse. From the pass, I headed up to the nearest highpoint, but that obviously wasn't the summit. At least it got me out of that awful sand and I took my time enjoying the ridge traverse over to what finally turned out to be the real summit. Found the register wedged in the granite in, of all things, a beef jerky bag. I was the second one of the day to sign in, but also only the second one in 2008. I suspect that has more to do with the difficulty with figuring out the actual high point and then locating the register in what looks like litter... Smoky day from all the fires, but is there really a bad day in the Sierra. The 13k peaks around the Little Lakes Valley were beautiful nonetheless. Dropped down the chute directly below the summit and ended up hitting a boulder under some scree and falling on my ass and bruising my tailbone. Didn't expect to get bruised and bloodied on this one, of all peaks, but all in all it was a great day.

Wonderful day trip with my 5 month-pregnant climbing partner. Super rewarding summit without too much stress. I was unsure of the actual summit, and had an enjoyable ridge traverse to the northern summit, each summit (northern and southern) looking just a tad higher than the other! Couldn't find a register, but that ridge traverse was sooooo worth the search. The fall colors in the lakes valley made the area look like a golf course!

After a 7 hour drive from Northern Cal, started hiking at 4PM. Went up via Mono Pass and down the East Face. I would never suggest the East Face as an ascent (maybe with snow) but it had some of the best scree for plunge stepping descent yet encountered.

Went for a quick day hike op Mt. Starr with Eric (codda12) and Blair (blair). We arrived at a campground in the Bishop area around 1:30am and were really considering making it a night hike under the full moon. After going back and forth with the idea a couple of times, we decided to get a few hours of sleep instead; we were pretty tired and had never been in that area before. Woke up around 6am and after some breakfast, we were headed up the trail. Fun scrambling on the ridge to the summit. Quite confusing to know which one is the actual summit. I abandoned my register search when some black clouds turned threatening. Luckily no storms developed and we were soon enjoying some pizza at the pizza factory in Bishop. Fun day!!

Dayhike via Mono Pass. Really sandy, but fun if you stay to the ridgeline leading up from the pass. Climbed w/3 others.

Climbed with my daughter Tessa. Her first Sierra peak at 3 years old. Of course she got a ride in the pack, but she laughed and sang the entire way up and down.

Did this as an afternoon hike after our usual late start. Not the most exciting, but worth doing at least once. The views from the summit are quite nice.

Mono Pass still with snow. No register on Starr even though several have been left since 2004. Took a friend on this for his second summit hike ever.

I don't know where the register might be. Went from one end of the ridge and back and still couldn't find it.
