Incredible views from the top in all directions. A little chilly and windy at the end of fall.

A nice, clear day with outstanding views and calm winds. Taking the hiking trail, rather than the snow covered road up Rogers, there were some ice patches to step over and/or be cautious with on the stretch near the trailhead. Snow began in earnest from Arcane Meadow onward, but was not deep enough to slow my pace. I sometimes avoided snow by sticking to the ridgeline. Upon reaching the final, steep climb up Telescope, I bypassed the potentially icy switchbacks by heading straight up the north/northeast ridge in soft ankle to shin deep snow. I was fine in my waterproof hiking boots with trekking poles. I summited Bennett on the way back from Telescope, but didn't want to deal with Rogers (got a late midday start/finished in the dark as it was), nor the deeper snow of the north facing slopes of the road down from it...maybe a quick summit of Rogers next time I go to DVNP.

Spectacular hike to a surprisingly nice summit with commanding views. This was a great way to finish a trip that started with a turn-around on Whitney at 13,200 feet.

Date Climbed: Jan 15, 2012


Used Mt. Bike from Shorty's Well to the narrows of Hanaupah Canyon, then hiked. Started at 4 am, reached Telescope peak at 1 pm, had lunch, and returned to Shorty's at 6:30 pm. Beautiful day, a little wind on the summit ridge, minor easily-avoidable ice on the final switchbacks.

Camped at Mahogany Flats and hiked to the summit with friend Ed and niece Megan as a warm-up climb for Mount Whitney Mountaineer's Route. Pleasant day with great views of Badwater and Mount Whitney. We had the mountain to ourselves. 74 degrees driving back down service road and 114 degrees in Stovepipe Wells just a few miles away.

Beautiful clouds for the entire morning. This kept the temp down. Hiked from Mahogany with JQ. Hit Rogers and Bennett on the way back. Wildrose the day before.

This was my second time high on the mountain, but my first summit. A couple years ago, I hiked from badwater with friends up the standard ridge from shorty's . . . on reaching the main ridge below the summit of telescope we were too *tired* to go to the top.

Date Climbed: Oct 10, 2009
Hit Wildrose and Telescope on a weekend. Mahogany Flat is a nice campground for those who need basic necessities but there are excellent backcountry spots on the trail up to Telescope. This area makes for a great weekend trip.
