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.

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.
