Matthew HollimanRoute Climbed: East Sand Slopes (ascent) / West Sand Slopes (descent) Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2005  Sucess!

Matthew Holliman

Glenn, his brother Curt, and I climbed this as a warmup for the TBolt-North Pal traverse the next day. We'd been told by a mutual friend--I'll won't name him here in order to spare Bob B. some embarrassment--that the East "Face" offered some nice scrambling. We found instead a hell of a lot of sand, and somewhere near the top about 20 feet of enjoyable contrived third class. At least the equally sandy slopes down to Mono Pass were pleasant to descend. Nice views from the summit--I thought they were probably better than those from Mills or Abbot.



We continued on to Ruby Ridge (some exciting cl 4-5 scrambling to gain that), but bailed on continuing on to Ruby Peak because of general apathy.

Quick warmup hike from Mosquito Flats trying to get acclimated for my hike the next day to Hilgard and BCS. Fun ridgeline scramble to the highpoint.

Reached the pass after about 1/4 mile hike on snow. There was still significant amounts of snow around the pass but it is doable if you are careful! We didn't climb the summits as we didn't have gear with us and my friends were concerned about the late time of day. Ruby Lake still had much snowpack and was beautiful.

Just did this in May, went back to put the register book in a plastic bag. Clouds rolled in about 11am, completed the task and ran from lightning back to Mosq.Flat.

Tried the South East face in March and backed off , too much snow, went up the South face May 29 and backed off, and went around through Mono Pass May 30. Placed an ammo can and log at the high point and searched the ridge from the south to the low point in the north for an existing log and could not find it. Probably hidden by snow.

Yes, a great time with Dave (see below). Not sure what Southeast Chute of Ruby Wall Dave is referring to. We climbed the northeast slopes to the ridge and went above Ruby Wall to Ruby Peak. We'll get that last part between Ruby Peak and Mt. Mills next go around! Trip Report

Bob Burd and I did this peak as part of the Ruby Wall Traverse (Starr, Mono Pass, Southeast Chute of Ruby Wall, Ruby Peak). Left the trail about 1/4 mile from the start of the trailhead and headed straight for the summit. Forced in a tad bit of 4th class in the talus field above. Our plan was to climb to Mt. Mills but we fell behind on our schedule. Still got in some spectacular 5th class soloing on Ruby Wall.

Beautiful hike up Little Lakes Valley. Actually did this hike on my honeymoon...wife was sick, and since I was in the neighborhood it seemed a fairly easy peak to bag. Great views and some nice fall colors.

Spent the night at Ruby lake. I took my dog with me she did great until the pass. I was able to coax her about 3/4 of the way up and she fizzled on me. So no summit. I did meet a group of friends coming out from Fourth Recess. To much scrambling for a dog!

Great little trip. Ran up to the pass. Scrambled to the top for great views and back to the pass. Had a nice run back down to Mosquito Flat. A fun little peak that doesn't take long.

I have climbed this one several times. A nice side trip in or out of Fourth Recess. This is a scramble from the saddle on up. The view is worth it.
