MTfred19West Summit - South ridge from Hart Lake
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2011

MTfred19

It was extremely hot on this day! After arriving at Hart Lake and getting a good view of the south face, the dogs and I were a little humbled and we decided to head up the south ridge instead. Amazing views at the top and the west summit is well worth the effort! Yeah - there's no way I'm gonna try that traverse over to the main summit! I'll definitely come back and climb the south face route.

This one had been on the list for awhile. Views from the top were amazing, though given its location, it would be hard to expect otherwise. The prominent shark fin of El Capitan is especially impressive from this vantage. The highlight of this adventure, however, was camping in the High Lakes Basin. Easily one of the most amazing places I've ever slept. It took some work to get there and it was interesting choosing dog friendly paths through the boulder fields but all of our effort could not have paid off more handsomely.

First time in the "root" in 3 years. My oh my it's been too long! Was blown away at the Chaffin High Lakes area. Special place indeed. Quite a bit of snow in the High Lakes area but dry rock on the south ridge to the summit. Views from top were amazing. I love El Capitan!

I got an early start at the trail head and met my neighbor Alan who camped at Hart Lake, Following some pretty Good direction from Mike Hoyt, the route finding went well, Plenty of loose rocks made assending a bit slow as we waited for one to go then the other to not kick rocks on each other, bout as steep as I care to go up or down, but we made it. Long Day

Spent a leisurely hike in and a night at the first lake. Straight forward scramble to the summit ridge. North face looks interesting...
