irrationalistNew Year's Rez Achieved  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 23, 2013


My resolution for 2013 was to climb 5 peaks to recover my knee and start seeing the local mountains. This was the last one I did for that resolution (but not for the year) with my now fiancee.

The drive in from Indian Wells isn't bad at all at the moment. Low clearance might even make it using extreme care in just a couple brief spots near the end... for high clearance it is like a highway. Enjoyed the trail, very short and very steep. Much more shade than I anticipated which was a nice plus. Excellent views. Visited Trona Pinnacles in the afternoon and the next day took off for some OHVing on the Bonanza Trail.

Started at Walker Pass Campground with some PCT thru hiker friends, they went as far as the saddle with me, then I turned off and went up the peak. I lost the use trail near what I thought was the top and went too far left and ended up on the rocky knob below the summit. I scrambled up the far NW corner, only realizing it wasn't the summit when I got to the top of it. Then I scrambled along that ridge to the east and hiked up to the true summit. Coming down I mistakenly took the wrong trail which was to the east of the use trail I wanted, so bushwhacked over to that and then saw where I lost the trail on the way up. Had an uneventful return after that.

Cruising the PCT to the base of the summit ridge, then a surprisingly complex scramble to the top. Fabulous views of the Whitney Crest to the north, as well as in all directions.

Went up with a group from Sea to Summit out of Bishop. Camped in the area for about 5 days and summited on the morning of the last day. No view as the summit was socked in with a snow shower.

Beats me what route we took! It was a trail MOST of the way but somehow we ended up doing the scree-scree dance on the southeastern side of the peak. Nice view of the valley and I enjoyed the wind up top emmensely! Thanks for the work-out Tina - I had no idea I was THAT out of shape! XXOO

My 4Runner got stuck in the snow but I managed to get us out. A late start from near the trailhead (started hiking at ~ 12:45pm with Tina). This time I found the nice, sandy trail down. Back at the car just after 5:30pm. A fun day out.

Route Climbed: IWV Trail

Hiked with awagher. We snow camped (about 1" of snow) outside at the trailhead (5,400') Friday night. Temperatures Saturday morning @ 7:30am were 8 degrees F. Started hiking at 8:10am. Got a bit off route 2/3 of the way up...eventually found the snow-covered trail to the summit. Reached the summit at 10:50am. Waited for Andrew. Had a steady 20mph cold wind up there. We avoided the snowy slabs on the way down but ended up descending a tedious talus with fresh snow (slippery). Back to the car at ~ 1:10pm (a leisurely 5 hrs car-to-car). Drove to Indian Wells Brewery afterwards to fill up with Lobotomy Bock.
