Class 3 in the southern Sierra. Who woulda guessed? :-)

Crag Peak is another fun class 3 one that's climbable year round. I wouldn't mind going back to that one again, to climb its north ridge. Might be spicier than Spanish Needle.

Southern Sierra? It kind of reminds me of where I grew up in So Cal, you know, outside of the San Fernando Valley near Valencia.

Nice page.

Yeah, it definitely looks more like SoCal than the Sierra. The area makes a nice change of pace--there are some nice scrambles around there. I'm sure I'll be going back this winter for some of the HPS peaks around there.

I would have thought a needle would be more - umm - spikey. Nice and well written page!

Very cool, but can you see the Sierras from the summit?

Thanks... I have a bunch more to add on rainy days this winter. The Southern Sierra's pretty cool. It's almost like high desert, with some granite thrown in there to remind you that you're in the Sierra still.

Thanks, Misha! I'd wanted to climb this peak for a while now... the name was pretty enticing.

Great page! I'm planning on Lamont for this fall, so maybe I'll try this one too - that last leap the summit looks like it'll be tough for me.

I'd like to do a loop around Lamont/Spanish/Sawtooth sometime--that's a great area. The step across on Spanish is really pretty easy, it just took me a minute or two to work up the nerve...
