Thomas ErspamerNorth Side  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2008

Thomas Erspamer

Great day. Perfect weather. Did loop up from Onion Valley. North side main route. Down south over University Pass down the chute and out past Robinson Lake back to Onion. About 12 hours. Took lots of time to contemplate the meaning of life. Great rock. Terrific day of bouldering. Deserted wilderness.

fine scramble, class 3 moves, and the zigzag through the upper towers is spectacular, even climbed the upper snow patch to keyhole and summit block. A little disouraging finding a running trail off the south side, but I think I got the better views.

Nice scramble! Fun solo dayhike from Onion Valley. Descended via the Southeast Ridge to make a loop of it.

Did this in preparation for Whitney. Great hike from the Onion Valley route. The chain of lakes are not only great visually but a great place to camp. I am surprised that more people don't visit this area! It was cold and there was a good amount of snow on the ground and it also snowed a little. A group went with us with a broken tent, not such a good time in freezing temps!

Cool peak. I took the north side up and down. It was a long way up from the lake with 6" of snow. When I got to the summit ridge, it took me an hour to find the route to the summit block. For future reference, stay on the snow on the north side, don't cross over to the south. When I reached the summit block, I couldn't figure out which point was the highest. I climbed the three most likely candidates (just in case), but did not find a summit register anywhere (perhaps it was under the snow). One of those points was quite challenge (re: scary) to climb, so I didn't spend too much time on top of that one. Nice views from the top and really cool views of the mountain from down at the lake. My dog cut his toe during the ascent. He waited for me for an hour or so on the summit ridge. Then I followed his bloody tracks back to the car. He's alright now though, no worries.

I thought the pass to the east of University pass was a much better route even though it is farther from the peak.

Fun hike up the north face from Mattock Lake. A few spots of class 3 but mostly class 2, a long way up the rib amid rapidly darkening skies. It started raining ice pellets while I was on the summit, so I quickly left, descending the east face to Robinson Lake. When I was in sight of the parking lot it starting pouring so rather than put on my rain jacket I decided to make a run for it, and of course I tripped and skinned my knee :( Nothing serious, just annoying.

Awesome climb up with great views the whole way. Descending Univesity Pass was a pain though. Scrambled up Independence's west face as well. Found a lidless ammo box with a rusted can on top, no notebook though, so I added one and taped it. Hopefully somebody will place a new box...

Beautiful climb. Always nice to do a loop, so we descended the east slope. HERE is a Google Earth GPS track of our trip with photos.

Nice route. Fun scrambling. A beautiful weather day in the Sierra's. Solo climb just soaking in all the beauty (and breathing hard!). Part of a three peak long weekend (with BearCreekSpire and Laurel).

May 21, 2007: South slope from Center Basin. Sandy/scree slog up from the outlet of the unnamed lake at the base of University's southern slopes. Took southern slopes up to the SE ridge near peak 3926, then traversed the ridge until reaching the last 150 feet or so of climbing. The whole southern side was melted out pretty good, though there were a couple of small icy patches. Register still missing its top, but everything inside was dry. If there is a Class 1 route up from Center Basin, I didn't find it!


August 24, 2007: Up the north face, down SE slopes to Center Basin.

Great climb. The register lid is gone and the plastic bag that covers the register has holes in it. If anyone is going up they should take a new register box. The register itself is a large book 11" by 17". Climbed the North Face decended the East Face.

Easy scramble from Center Basin on the JMT. I dont care what Secor says, it is certainly not class 1. Great views all around

7th day of the Sierra Challenge. I decided to do a previous years challenge peak instead of East Vidette. Ascended the north face and descended via University Shoulder and Kearsarge Lakes.

Climbed the Southeast Ridge from Robinson Lake. The slope up to University Pass was full of soft snow so it was a little tiring. The views from the summit nearly without parallel in the Sierra. 360 degrees of breathtaking vistas.
