slugbuttSE Face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2014
Ascended via one of the chutes leading out of Little Grinnell lake until I reached the ridge line. Then I followed the little ridge to the summit as I found that be a lot of fun. Descended down the north side.

Climbed right-hand chute but stayed mainly on left wall to avoid boiler plate avalanches. Two dribbly waterfalls were interesting to get over. Other than the loose stuff, this was a super fun Class 3 ascent. Descended same way since I already knew the chute's "personality." Had the mtn to myself!

Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2014


Day hiked this one with Tommey after hiking up Red Slate. We took one look at the ridge between McGee Pass and Red & White and decided it was too much of an adventure. Amazed how close Isaac Walton was (about one air mile).

I really enjoyed this route. And the approach scenery, along with the views of Fish Creek drainage from the summit, were spectacular.

Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2011


Climbed from the trailhead to the summit in 4hrs 20min. Mostly snow above Little McGee Lake, then a hike along the ridge, to a fun, pretty solid scramble to the summit. Good route, I would recommend it over most 3rd class routes I've done in the Sierra. 8hrs 40min round trip.

fatdadThe NE Ridge, what else.  Sucess!


Back in the early 2000's. A fun two day trip camping at Big McGee Lake. Absolutely stunning geology on the hike in and a fun, pretty mellow scramble. Recommended.

Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2008


Day hike from the McGee Creek trailhead. The NE Ridge route was better than I expected (probably based on low expectations). I elected to descend the same way that I had climbed up. Very nice fall colors in the canyon on the hike in (though probably a couple weeks from peak color). It took me 9 hrs 45 min roundtrip.

The NE Ridge seemed almost more like class 2, but I found the SE Face a bit spicy in places. Fantastic views from the summit.

Day 3 of the 2003 Sierra Challenge, climbing with Michael Graupe and Matthew Holliman. We found the Northeast Ridge to be completely underwhelming. 9hrs RT from the McGee Creek TH. Trip Report
