Packed into Seven Gables Lake from Bear Creek Trailhead with Jay, Franz, & Christian. A long but beautiful walk. Lotsa water in the creeks. Summited the south route the next day (24th). Surprisingly harder than it looks, but its mostly hiking with a bit of rock scrambling over the increasingly large blocks rock towards the top. Fabulous views!

Loop hike from Sallie Keyes that included Senger and Gemini. This route (loose sand everywhere) was distasteful until the very top where it got really interesting. Not knowing the layout of the top, I passed on the cl.4+ knife edge below the summit and did something similar to mrchad -- which turned out to be interesting as well. Returned via the west slope to Sandpiper, Marie and finally Selden Pass.

Up the southeast ridge during a weekend spent at Marie Lake. Fantastic campsite and really enjoyed this route. Topped out at the knife edged ridge, then over to the west chute. Dropped down a bit and went up what seemed to be a class four chimney (it was more of a face really). The class three chimney looked like it was probably just a few feet to my left. Cool overhanging summitblock.

The biggest goal of an 8-day backpacking and peakbagging tour out of Pine Creek. We camped at Big Bear Lake and studied the east-facing chute. Looked like vertical snow at the top. Fortunately all was passable class 2, no problems. Great climb, had a blast. Snow helped us in the chute (both up and down), and the talus was solid and good once we started up the final stretch to the summit. Nice class 3 summit block. Love the views from here, right in the center of it all.

Climbed in September, 1982; unsure of exact date. I was on a long backpack trip through the region- this was one of several peaks bagged. Also tagged the north summit on my way back down.

OregonGalI was 13 my brother 12  Sucess!
Not sure of the exact date, It was in the summer dad and his partners of New Growth Forestry Service, teamed up with a few Hoedads and Marmots for summers of '79-'80 to rebuild John Muir Trail from Florence Lake to Seldon Pass (i think..) We had base camp in the Sally Keys Lakes. Dad and his friend Mike Bresgal decided to climb Seven Gables and my brother John ( a year younger than I) and I went with them. It was tough, but the view and the thrill of signing the book at the top... well, we stayed up a while and made it back to camp after dark. Wish i had a camera, the sheer drop off one side and the tumbled boulders to climb thru at the top surprised me. I always wondered what happened to the book...but I am in there! Erica :-)

One of the most spectacular places in the Sierra. One of the most memorable trip with Pookie.

As a bonus peak of our 9-day SHR backpacking trip. Stayed at Ursa Lake (one of the Bear Lake) the night before, traversed to Vee Lakes then Severn Gables Lakes, scrambled up from the saddle to the north of peak.

Changed trailheads at the last minute from Florence Lake to Bear Diversion; great decision. From Bear Diversion it's 13.5 miles along Bear Creek all the way, mostly shaded with some gorgeous waterfalls, pools and the biggest Aspens I've ever seen. Camping at Sandpiper Lake put us a mile and a half closer to Seven Gables than if we'd camped at Marie Lake. From Sandpiper we climbed the west slope.

Eddie Sudol, John Wilkinson and I entered from the Bear Ridge trailhead to climb this peak. The route from Sandpiper Lake is a slog but this mountain is a great excuse to visit a beautiful section of the Sierra.

I have to agree with Matthew that the route left much to be desired. But then we pretty much knew that going in. Oh the sad fate of obstinate peakbaggers. Trip Report.

Not a particularly good climb (to be kind), although the views from the summit almost compensated. I should have waited to climb the East Face next summer. Dayhike from the Bear Creek diversion dam with Bob and Rick.
