On my way home, exhausted from the 2014 SC I hiked up the SW slope route. This was a wonderful hike through truly beautiful country.

The hike via Conness Lakes is just gorgeous. I could do without the sandy slog up the hill, but at least the descent is quick!

Was driving to Mammoth for a weekend of peakbagging, decided to do Hoffman in the morning and North Peak in the afternoon to help acclimate for the weekend fun. Views from North Peak were grand. Trip report is HERE.

Day hike from Saddlebag Lake, a total of 7 hours. Up via a sandy slope above the highest of the Conness Lakes to the ridge line ("North Peak Pass" in Secor), then SW face to the summit. Down the steep, somewhat loose SE chute. There is still a patch of snow at the top of the chute, but it's easy to go around it.

Solo from Saddlebag Lake. The last 200 vertical ft to the summit is no longer skiable this year. It was all about the summit for me though, so I persevered and had the summit to myself.

Watched a great sunset and then descended, the last 1 1/2 with headlamp. Really a wonderful area.

Up the sandy SE slope and ascended a class 3 chute a bit to the right of the one described in the route section. Topped out on the ridge less than 100 yards from the summit.

The Rim Fire was raging off to the west- but the Saddlebag Lake area was crystal clear

Pics and commentary are here.

Discovered this route after several days of cross-country backpacking from Green Creek. Definitely a nice finale. The scrambling towards the top is quite pleasant and the views are stunning. Although I didn't take it, I recommend the right chute variation to this route. There are actually two right chutes (really, the cute is split by a gendarme towards the top), and both looked fun from above.

The area between Saddlebag Lake and Conness Lakes is stunningly scenic, especially given how little time and effort it takes to get there from the trailhead. Then a bit more effort put me atop an awesome perch with as much exposure and technical terrain within reach as I could want. However, given the approaching midday thunderstorms and my tendency to stick to class 2 terrain, I headed down quickly through rain to get to my hot lunch and shower.

Climbed the NW Ridge with a Bay Area Mountain Rescue Unit alpine training weekend. I am a weeny on fourth class so we used the rope a fair bit and I was basically shitting myself when we were not using a rope. I knew this already, but reinforced I have some work to do dealing with exposure. Still, a beautiful straightforward route with spectacular exposure and an easy descent route (regular class 2 route).

Been wanting to get on this route for a long time. Was fun, but much easier than I expected. Had a few inches of new snow covering the neve and small amounts of water ice on the upper sides. Good times!

Climbed up from a campground past saddlebag lakes. Rapped down from close to the summit, then on down a chute and to the bottom with a fun glissade.
