SeanReedyFun up; tedious down  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2014


Went up a chute on the far right (northwest slope) consisting of mostly solid class 2-3 rock (there were some loose rocks sitting around in spots that I avoided knocking down the chute) and then wrapped around the nortwest crag before traversing to the normal west slope summit route with an entertaining view of Winchell, North Pal, Thunderbolt, and the upper Big Pine Creek area lakes, as well as the constant sound of Palisades rockfall in the distance. Went down on or near standard route on long, tedious class 2 talus.

Fun scramble with fantastic views! Mostly class 2 with a couple of minor class 3 moves w no exposure/commitment worries. The grade seemed like it was about the same the whole way up. I kept expecting it to get steeper, but it was pretty mellow. We went up a chute that started off on the just past the border on the Sequoia/Kings Canyon side

Did this as a bit of a trail run from south lake. Went up the 2nd chute from the right as far as I was comfortable and then crossed over into the 1st chute from the right. Stayed class 2 all the way to the summit. Came down following the cairns and foot prints and had some class 3 down climbing below where I crossed on the way up. Beautiful day and wonderful views at the top. Car to car in about 7 hours. Not a record but good for this old man.

Date Climbed: Jun 24, 2011


Brought some friends from the east coast to enjoy the Sierra Nevada. We were treated to snow from Long Lake on, after a long, heavy winter. Made it a bit over 13,000' up the first right chute; the usual route was snowed over and melty by the time we got there. Fun route, awesome views.

What a fantastic view, not just of the Palisades, but the rest of the High Sierra. Went up the usual chute, but decided to go right for a little class 3.

Fun day climb from South Lake. Tried to keep it class 3 staying to the right of the class 2 chute...it looked like a lot of loose junk in there. Fun scramble. The views alone make this a worthy climb.
