Date Climbed: Nov 24, 2013

The dogs and I enjoyed 2-12 inches of fresh snow on our first Sierra outing in over 4.5 months (my surgically repaired broken ankle had caused us to miss the heart of hiking season). The time away, snow-enhanced scenery, and clear skies kept us from minding having been to the summit on two previous occasions.

Great views, perfect weather, swarms of mosquitos even at the summit. Two out of three ain't bad.

With nearby Dogtooth, hiked with Shane Smith who I randomly met at the trailhead in the morning. This, after hiking seven hours during the night on an unsuccessful effort to reach Tunemah - blocked by fire along the way. Trip Report.

5 hours round trip from Dinkey Lakes trailhead. Direct north face is a class 2 scramble. Wonderful mountain vistas on a sublime Fall morning.

SeanReedyLong Day Trip  Sucess!

Leaving from the South Bay in the morning, I didn't start hiking until midday. I had hoped there would be snow in the shady spots for the dogs and there was just enough to make them happy while still leaving me with the option to avoid it. I followed the Cliff Lake trail most of the way up. The views up on top were so far reaching that I stuck around almost until sunset. I relied on the moon and the nose of my yellow lab to scramble off trail most of the way back through the forest in the dark. The van thermometer indicated freezing temperatures upon returning to the trailhead, but I didn't stick around to see if I would begin to notice the cold.

Desert SolitaireSierra Mountain Junkies Unite!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2007

Well said, Matthew! See, unlike you, my "work" involves taking showers in the N Fork of the Kings, organizing gear for the next climb, and thinking up how I'm going to score dinner for the night. I squeezed this in as a morning run, getting back for a full "rest" day, tricking my body into lounging for the duration of sunlight. Nice, easy hike, with good views on a clear day. The walls above Cliff Lake make for some great scrambling/climbing!

The next day was a Tehipite Dome/Spanish Mtn dayhike.

I got up really early on a Friday, went into work long before sunrise, and managed to squeeze in a full day's work before noon... so that I could then drive a few hours to the Sierra, and tag this one in the afternoon without having to take a day off work. I felt like a junkie who'd figured out how to get his fix without anyone noticing.

Excellent summit views from an otherwise dull peak--all the way from the Clark Range to Goddard, and probably further south too.
