Great views from the top and we picked the perfect day as there wasn't a cloud in sight. The approach via the scree above the mine was less than pleasant but it gets better near the top.

TH to summit in 4:15 (including a 30+ min. break at 11,000 ft. on the way up). Bagged Hanging Valley Peak (12,260 ft.) via its pleasant class 3-4 south ridge on the way back. Good day out with Hugh de Q and Pedro Yamagata.

I camped near the middle lake of the 3 southern Gable Lakes. From camp I climbed and traversed peak 12120+ to gain Hanging Valley. Climbed Tom via southwest ridge- staying on crest as much as possible. Great view! Clear and windy. Explored some of the mines on the way back. Climbed peak 12200+ and traversed back to and over peak 12120+ to get back to camp.

Soloed up the SW ridge- to avoid the scree. No snow on the route but hailed and snowed a little on the way down- super views remained even so. From trailhead to summit absolutely one of the most scenic hikes I've done- I'd definitely go back.

No views from summit due to whiteout conditions. I traversed to far south and had to descend a sketchy south chute down to below Horton Lake. Lucky I didn't cliff out.

Went up the typical route, 4:20 to the top from the gate. Been awhile since I got up a Sierra peak, it felt great. We stuck to the better talus ribs straight up from the mine portal to the ridge, then took the ridge to the top. The sandy, loose stuff is for the descent only!

Climbed with Dave Gonzalez with a camp at Horton Lake. I was too slow and the deteriorating weather finally made me turn around at about 300 ft below the summit. Dave topped out though.

An unenjoyable scramble up mostly loose scree from the mine. Great views partially compensated for the slog.

Climbed a year ago. The only thing I have written in my notes is "really loose sucky scree". The views were nice, but I'm not sure I'm in a hurry to go back.

Robin and I actually got an early start for this one - mainly to ensure we got back in time for chinese food. Nice long dayhike. The views from the top were slightly sullied by a thick haze, but were impressive nonetheless.
