Overnight from Mineral King Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2014
We chose the Glacier --> H.A.K.P. Pass --> Pants Pass approach from Mineral King and camped at the largest lake in the basin between Pants Pass and the peak. The next morning we got up early and summited by scrambling up a class 3 face to the west of the peak then walking east along the ridgeline to the summit. We descended the loose bowl near the north ridge that Bob Burd describes in his trip report above. The hike out was long, and someone stole the energy drink I had stashed in the Little Five Lakes bear box.
Thanks to Bob for the thorough trip report. It was a valuable tool during our last-minute planning.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
