SEFReynolds and Raymond with dog , round trip from Indian Valley.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 10, 2013
Started at the big meadow in Indian Valley at 10AM and headed E toward Reynolds, working into the basin W of the peak, featuring open terrain, some forest, and windy stream chasms. Worked up to the notch N of Reynolds just N of a thumb rock. Dog stayed while I scrambled up the the summit and returned (class 3). We then descended W and contoured N to the pass at the head of Pennsylvania Creek, and then descended to the base of Raymond's SE slope and went up that, went over to the W side and up to Raymond, crossing back over the ridge higher up then to the summit (not quite class 3 -- dog was happy.) We descended back S to where we first topped the ridge, then descended the basin to the W until meeting the Crest Trail, returning the the Wet Meadows TH, and walking the road back to truck, arriving 4PM.

With friends camped for two nights at Raymond Meadows. Took PCT to Raymond Lake. Climbed straight up steep Northern slopes to summit then South East descent towards Pennsylvania Creek. Some tricky class 2/3 route finding on the descent from Raymond Peak as well climbing chutes on southeast side of Pennsylvania Creek. One of the most memorable days of exploration & scrambling! Want to return for Reynolds Peak some day. Photos here: http://www.meetup.com/Wildcat-Adventure-Club/photos/656299/

Left from Lower Sunset Lake. Followed the PCT to the turnoff for Raymond Lake and climbed from there. My dog made the summit also. Plenty of clouds made for a nice day of climbing.

Views were upset by east side fires. Descended west face (very loose!). Water in Raymond Lake taste like shit.

Very nice dayhike, nearly complete snow-free in November! Ascended the SW Ridge from Wet Meadows and descended one of the chutes on the West face. Interesting lenticulars were forming as we left the Hope Valley, maybe winter finally arrived!

Up the S.W. face and then down to Raymond lake and out on the PCT to the trailhead at Sunset lake. This was a fine day in the Mokelumne Wilderness

Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2004
Climbed the loose W. face with three others. Descended the even looser SE. face/chute back to the PCT. A long day that probably didn't need to have been that long (originally planning on Reynolds also)

Walked up from Raymond Lake. What is all of this about class 2/3 scrambling? The route I took was mostly class 1, with a little easy class 2 at the end.

When reminiscing, we refer to the Mokolumne Wilderness as the Smokey Wilderness because of our experience here. Climbed Camiaca Peak the day before and woke up in the back country the next day to very thick smoke from a fire to the east. It was pretty thick and alarming, so we headed out. Glad we saw the beautiful scenery on the way in.

DaveWillmottRoute Climbed: North West Chute ascent, Raymond Lake descent Date Climbed: July 31, 2005  Sucess!

A Sierra Club trip. We took the Wet Meadows Trailhead towards Raymond Lake. Just past an overlook where the switchbacks are we we began hiking cross country in a southerly direction until we attained a long ridge line at 8400ft. From there we continued south parallel to a wall until we could see a chute just below the summit. Some of our group took a class 4 route up at the summit block while others took the class 2-3 route either to the right or the left.

I climbed this peak with a bunch of Sierra Club members. We took a class 2-3 chute before we got to the Southwest ridge. The chute took us to the base of the summit block where we climbed a class 3 route to the top. It was a lot of fun and great weather.
