Sierra Challenge day 7. A long, mostly-easy ridge after an approach via Taboose Pass. The traverse north to Vennacher Needle was more challenging and interesting, but also quite long. "Saddlehorn," the end of the eastward spur in the middle, looked like it might be fun. Trip report.

Very long trip for a single peak from Taboose Pass. I love the Taboose Pass area, and everything from Pinchot to Mather Pass, but the approach is a bit longer than it is worth.

The ridge itself was fantastic. Nearly knife edge in spots and great scenery.

Fun ascent during a 4 day trip to Upper Basin. Class 3-4 rating in Secor is about right for the East Ridge. One of the best Sierra ridge climbs I have done.

Climbed it in early June. I wouldn't recommend that time of year because the river crossing was very dangerous. We made it across ok in the morning, but coming back in the afternoon We had to go about three miles up canyon to where the river split into three parts to get across. Otherwise great fun.

Long day after climbing Mt Deerhorn further south. Descended via the SE slope. Nice ridgeline after such a long approach.
