Date Climbed: May 28, 1968


Climbed with Brian Reynolds from Bullard High in Fresno while on a day hike to Sawtooth Pass during a senior graduation trip to his family's cabin in Mineral King. This was back in the days when Walt Disney was trying to turn Mineral King into a ski resort...spawning my "Save Mineral King" bumper sticker! Who remembers those?

Easy dayhike out of Mineral King. Lots of sand up to Sawtooth Pass. Weather turned while on the summit and cut the day short. Fun descent towards Upper Monarch though.

From Mineral King trailhead, we backpacked to Monarch Lake, set up camp there, and went for Sawtooth peak in a little under 2 hours. Awesome views from the top. Mineral peak looked really good so we did it the next day.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2009


This made for an amazing end to an amazing trip. The weather was absolutely perfect, although there seemed to be a fire to the south somewhere pushing a bunch of smoke northward into Lost Canyon. My highest peak to date!! Keep your eyes open for a trip report soon to come.

The weather dropped on the summit approach. Made the summit, but was robbed of the view!

colinrSawtooth Pass on a warm, clear day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2007


I opted to stay in the shade of the newer trail to Sawtooth Pass on the way up as it was hot in the sun. I took the old trail back after summiting via Sawtooth Pass. Descending on the old trail is rough on tired legs and feet for someone who might enjoy jogging or walking quickly down the softer and more gradaual new trail. Great views with very little Central Valley haze.

catullusRoute Climbed: NW ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2006


Climbed up NW ridge, climbed down South ridge to Amphitheater Lake. Started at 3:30am with the hope that we'd climb both Sawtooth and Needham. At 9:30am we were the first in the summit register for the day. Decided to chill at Amphitheater Lake instead of climbing Needham. Even though it was labor day weekend, we didn't see any other parties until we were halfway back down (at Crystal Lake).

Evan and I peaked sawtooth on the 2nd to last day of our 7 day backpacking trip starting at Crescent meadow, going over the Kaweah gap, coming up lost canyon and ending out of Mineral King. Definately a highlight.

mrjdobbs Sawtooth at Sunrise  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 1, 2005


I climbed Sawtooth in the dark just to see the sunrise from the summit. It was truly amazing. First I watched the crescent moon rise...then the sun came up. It flashed from behind Needham and sent rays in every direction. This sunrise was probably the most emotional and awesome sights I have ever seen. The route wasn't too difficult except for the sand. My headlamp went out halfway up and I have to use a mini maglight the rest of the way.

Climbed Sawtooth during seven trip back to Lodgepole. Glacier Pass to Hands-and Knees Pass is preferable to get over to Five Lakes. Smoky views due to numerous fires.
