While the climb itself isn't much, it's hard to find a better view from any summit in the Sierra. Both the north and south Palisades stretched out before you. Beautiful. A good one to tag if you have time after doing Mt. Sill.
Route Climbed: Southwest Ridge Direct Date Climbed: July 21, 22, 2006
Instead of the Yellow Brick Road, did the SW Ridge following along the very top of the ridge (the Yellow Brick Road travels generally below the top of the ridge on the right). This route includes a lot of fun 4th Class, with occassional short,low Class 5 sections. You get a good number of chimneys and places to use mantles and stemming. The granite is tightly put together and feels wonderful. Did this route on consecutive days I liked it so much.
