Greg KuperbergGreat peak, but hated SE trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2014
The peak was beautiful. We should have descended to St. Mary's Pass to the NW. Unfortunately we followed a "use" trail along the SE ridge. No thank you!! It looks easy at first; then it turns into a questionable class 2 trail that also has false leads. (Maybe class 3 in a few places.) There should be a warning barrier or something.

A nice walkup with a bit of snow here and there in early June. Huffed over to Stanislaus for a two peak morning hike.

Great, easy hike. It would be a good peak for a beginner peakbagger. Here's the trip report!

Took Josh and Charlie up via St Mary's. Nice quick hike to Sonora, which was the highest peak so far for the other guys. Hiked over to Stanislaus, but didn't have time to climb it needing to get back home for a late afternoon commitment.

Took an old abandoned jeep track that is right on the ridge crest from Sonora Pass. Then up a bootpath that cuts left of the pinnacles on the S ridge. Hit the PCT right where it crosses the ridge at 10,400. Then up a discernible bootpath for a while on the SE ridge. Lost the bootpath at one point and sidehilled on the S slopes which was a mistake since they were loose and slow going. Came down the SE ridge down to 10,400 again which was much better. Then down the PCT which meandered too much. Would take bootpath the whole way if I were to do it again.

Hiked up the Saint Mary's Pass Trail to Stanislaus Peak, then followed ridge, hitting all the high points to Sonora Peak, then down the PCT to the highway and back to where I started.

Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2012
Did the Sonora/Stanislaus double - Stanislaus was a bit tougher. Lots of loose scree which would frequently slide making the ascent a little tougher.

2h car-to-car. Easy peak, nice views of course. A little loose on the way up, but heaven riding the scree on the way down!

Finding snow almost everywhere except for the summit ridge made for a scenic hike and eased a steep shortcut on the way down. The snow was not very deep in most areas and I usually only sunk an inch into it, even in the afternoon. I suspect there ought to be lots of mud and skeeters soon, followed by a long summer.

Super smoky day from fires, but a good climb nevertheless. Planned on Stanislaus too, but the smoke was too thick and had trouble breathing.

Lots and LOTS of snow, of various tempraments (firm, posthole-y and ridged)from St. Mary's pass sign (Trailhead parking still had 3 feet of snow). But after a lot of snow , summited the clear gravelly peak. I have the 'Snow burn' to prove it. Wish I knew how to snow shoe.

Very windy on the hike up. Felt almost blown away a few times (was very light at the time and I was barely 5ft... >:) Didn't do Stanislaus Peak - it looked so cool... well, some other time.

Climbed as a warm-up before doing a 3 day trip to climb Mount Ritter. Always wanted to do this with Stanislaus which looks very appealing. County Summit #13.
