Breezy conditions made this a very pleasant hike, since it can get quite hot here otherwise. Postcard views the whole way...

Date Climbed: Jul 19, 2014


After dayhiking Middle Palisade the day before, this was a pleasant 12.1 mile hike along the ridge line from Minaret Summit. Although a 4x4 road can be found to drive up another nearly two miles, I just hiked it in the afternoon and was done in five hours. Fantastic views of the Minarets, Banner, Ritter, Mono Lake, the Glass Mountain Range, and even all the way to Boundary and Montgomery.

From Minaret Vista and snaking along the ridge the day after a great snowfall. Ground coverage was anything from dry cinder to crotch-deep fresh snow. Lots of rime and tall drifts. Beautiful cold day to get first prints in the snow. Tagged Two Teets as well. :)

1000 Island Lake is a gem in the high sierra!

With MD, our second attempt. Two years earlier we were thwarted by brutal winds, also during winter.

11hrs ctc. Spectacular views. Ice ax was very handy after dead man summit. Carried but did not end up using crampons and snow shoes.

Date Climbed: Oct 1, 2011


Great views along the entire ridge. Climbed the east Teat and then San Joaquin on a very windy day. Had champagne with a Sierra Club group on descent. Two days later hiked to Ediza Lake which had great views of San Joaquin.

mrchad9Superb views  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2011


Took the 4x4 road the first two miles to the end, then followed the trail to the summit, climbing the teet on the way. The hike was better than I expected, but far too sandy.

Stunning views here, this peak likely has the highest fantastic view to tedious slog ratios of any I have ever been on.

My wife and I got a break from the smoke, sort of, and hiked up San Joaquin from the Minaret Summit parking lot. Excellent views of the Ansel Adams Wilderness. We also bagged the lower "teet", which had one move that was probably like class 4. The hike to the teet took us about ~4 hours with breaks, the hike up to the summit of San Joaquin took another 15 minutes.
