Hi Bob,



Thanks for the input. I'm still working on gathering information and updating the page with all the routes to the peak. Personally, I have only climbed the mountain via the Mineral King route, hence it making the first appearance. The page is still under construction though, and I intend to add more info in the near future. Thanks again for all your help!!! : ]

Funny, I didn't realize it was you until you replied about the margaritas. I figured you were just another lame-ass putting up nonsense about Sierra peaks. Good thing I wasn't thinking anything mean about you... :-)

How is Mineral King the easiest approach? It seems like more than 12 miles one way from Mineral King, yet only about 3-4 miles from the South Fork Ranger Station/Campground. Having never been there I don't what the conditions are like between the two routes, so hope you can fill us in.

March, 2014
Tried going up the Case Mtn. route. Was immediately greeted by some young locals in a jeep coming down from the other side of the first locked gate who (politely) advised to not hike into private property.
2 other local climbers I had just met said pot growers are a problem in this area. They also advised against leaving a vehicle parked here overnight due to break-ins. That was enough for me. I abandoned the attempt. Just fyi.

I "heard" from "someone" who climbed Homer's Nose from the Kaweah River route mentioned here as the 'Case Mountain Route' in late 2014 and wanted to add one update not mentioned in the linked reports. There were at least 6, perhaps closer to 10 gates and fences almost all very clearly posted 'No Trespassing' that this "someone" chose to pass through using the described route. I've personally done the approach from the South Fork TH to Salt Creek Ridge and rather enjoyed it in the way only a obscure-peak bagger could, easily avoiding poison oak and avoiding trespassing, although there was lots more bushwacking and route finding to be done. Given how much blatant trespassing was involved, I would highly recommend the South Fork route, instead.
