East face above the black triangle provides sustained class 3 climbing. For the best rock stay on the arête but still check your holds as loose rock abounds.

Up from Green Creek and Virginia Pass. Ascended the waterfall canyon (to the right of the waterfall) up to the Twin/Virginia saddle and then took the loose ridgeline up to Virginia.

Pics and commentary are here.

Fun weekend camped at Return Lake, climbing Grey Butte, Stanton Peak, Virginia Peak, and Twin Peaks. I started from Green Lake TH and went over Virginia Pass and looped back past Summit Lake on the return.

Green Creek Trail to Twin Peaks Pass, then to the top. Lots of fun! Looks like Adam was here two weeks earlier.

Camped at the head of Virginia Canyon after coming in from Green Lakes TH. Headed up Virginia early in the morning then up the ridge to Twin. Super views, little wind, and no clouds all day long.

Followed the waterfall up to the tarn and continued up the talus slope to the pass. Great day with almost no wind, leaving me to swat away at the horde of flies on the summit.

Climbed along the waterfall and a mellow talus slope to Twin Peaks Pass. Then just a little bit of loose 3rd to the south for the summit of Virginia. A fun route. Continued on to Twin Peaks.

Climbed the East Face and traversed the ridge over to Twin Peaks.

Yes - the peak is loose, but with careful attention, the E. Face is pretty solid and lots of fun. Easy climb, but with enough exposure to keep it exhilarating!

Day 1 of the 2003 Sierra Challenge from Green Creek TH. The East Face is probably the best and most fun route on this mountain. Then traversed over to Twin Peaks.

It seems I lied in my summit log entry below. I did visit this peak again, mostly because it was an easy bonus on my way to Twin Peaks--and enjoyed it a good deal more this time. The East Face is a very easy but enjoyable scramble.

Traversed to Virginia from Twin Peaks along the South Ridge. We descended the East Face to make a direct route back to Virginia Pass. Looking up from the bottom makes the East Face look much more difficult, but the climbing was fun.

The second stop of a Stanton-Virginia dayhike. I disagree with the entry below: This is a miserable peak. Crappy rock everywhere.



I don't recommend the traverse from Stanton Peak unless you really like loose class 3. I ended up bailing somewhere along the ridge and climbing the east face--also loose class 3. I won't be visiting this peak again soon.
