Traversed from Haystack Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2006
Climbed this early on the second morning of an overnighter out of the Kibbie Ridge trailhead. Descended via Otter Lake to meet the PCT, and returned via Jack Main Canyon and Lake Eleanor to make a big loop out of the hike. Great weekend.
Didn't carry a tent or bivy sack, but waited out an impressive evening/overnight storm in a couple of space blankets and a 50 degree REI bag. This setup worked surprisingly well for a lightweight backpacking trip. I think I even slept a little.
Route Climbed: South Ridge Date Climbed: September 3, 2002
I explored nearly every inch of the area on both sides of Schofield Peak looking for a lost member of our party. We never did find him until we got back to the trailhead. Fortunately he was alright. Unfortunately, I never did summit Schofield Peak, nor did I take any pictures after the search began. However I was able to get some photos of Schofield the previous day during our climb of Haystack Peak.
