LincolnBNo Water  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2017


From Chimney Creek campground. Except for a stream crossing at the start, there was no water - this was in mid-June after the heaviest snow year on record.
The topo map shows a possible shortcut via a dirt road just south of the PCT, but no such luck -it's a private road with a gate.

From PCT to saddle. From trail, to off trail, to steep off trail to Class 2. Reverse on the way out. Good day. The guy in camp afterwards who showed up on a motorcycle with a tent, cabana, rake, broom, and chain saw topped off the evening.

2nd peak after bagging Lamont earlier in day. Walkup from saddle via PCT. Descent was much more fun via dry stream bed, nice little gully.

This was my second attempt to find Jenkin's drainage for the up portion of his loop. This was a very warm climb in May.

Pretty sandy walk up the ridge from the PCT, but not too much bushwhacking. Windy and chilly for June.

Was somewhat of a rainy day making for a lush hike up the final slopes. Made a nice contrast with the desert views to the east.

Matthew HollimanSpring and fall outings  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 25, 2004

Matthew Holliman

The first time was on the second day of a delightful 4-day sojourn in the Southern Sierra, my first visit to the area: Lamont Peak in the morning, then this one via its south/southwest ridge from the PCT in the afternoon. Followed the excellent recommendation in Jenkins' guidebook to descend a canyon to the west to return to the PCT more directly than where I left it... scenic and enjoyable.

The second time was in the fall of the same year, after climbing Spanish Needle earlier in the day with Bob. Again climbed the south "ridge", this time returning via the peak's steep, loose SE side to head back to Sand Canyon.

Matthew and I hit up Spanish Needle first, then headed north to Sawtooth. We took a steep route off the SE side of Sawtooth to return to our car in the desert to the east. Not an especially exciting peak. Spanish Needle was much more fun. Trip Report

Conditions were just right for a walk up Sawtooth today. Cool enough to avoid overheating, but not so chilly that the clothes weighed you down. Blue skies, light breeze, and no people anywhere.
