2 hour drive to gate from Bishop, the hike itself is straightforward, tagged Mt. Barcroft on the way down.

Date Climbed: Nov 29, 2014


Got turned around a couple miles short of the summit. Too windy and cold... when we left Barcroft Gate my car said it was 25F, and the wind only picked up as we walked. After a short respite inside the Barcroft Station, I continued on until I couldn't bear the wind and cold thru my trekking pants.

There must have been nearly 100 people on their way up or down on this open-gate day. Camped at Grandview and then drove to the research station. Even so it took 3.5 hours to the summit. Totally clear day with some wind and a little smoke haze, but awesome views

UltamagneticAltitude sickness   Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 17, 2014
Easy hike but the altitude got to me at the switchbacks. My dog motivated me to the top. Pretty cool me and my dog got enjoy the summit. I don't think she had altitude sickness.

DebLast Day of Summer = SNOW  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 20, 2014


Boring slog turned interesting by the waves of rain/hail/graupel that rolled over. Cold, windy (of course) with a tasty beer on the summit with my sweet friend. CHECK!

mcmurdosoundGreat hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2014


Drove up from Ventura with Mebo1126 and had a really nice hike. Lots of sunshine, not a cloud in the sky. Plenty of wind though! Lots of hikers for the Labor Day weekend but certainly not overwhelming. We left the research station at 7 am and reached the summit at 10:40. Road going in was pretty rough...

Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2014


Enjoyed this 14er on a sunny but windy day. Was thankful that the gate was open. Though this was an "easy" 14er, I still wouldn't call it an easy hike.

scgrantWhite Mountain Peak  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2014


Not surprisingly this is a very crowded mountain. I camped at the Barcroft gate and was up and moving before anyone else. I made the summit in less than three hours and hung out up there for an hour. Before heading down I scrambled down to the White Mountains wilderness area highpoint. I passed upwards of 50 people while hiking down. Also on the way down I made the sidetrip over to Mount Barcroft. This was my third 14er, Whitney and Shasta my other two.

Toogee Pefect Day!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2014


Summitted with my oldest son Justin and his dog Aspen. We started at 4:30 to do most of the hike on the way up without the sun beating down on us, and summitted at 7:45. Good move! Was able to see a herd of Bighorn sheep right in the saddle before the summit. The ease of access, no need for permitting, and not having to share the trail with hundreds of other hikers makes this hike a no brainer. This is a day hiker's wet dream!

Diesel2nd 14ner  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2014


Perfect day, started 2:PM. Back to car at 8:15. 3 hours & 24 minutes from gate to summit. I went from sea level to summit of White Mountain so fast, I got altitude sickness. My GPS said almost 15 miles round trip. This should've been and easy hike but it turned out an absolute pain. The sickness didn't hit me until I was on my way down, probably 4-5 miles to car. On top of it, on my way down to Bishop, I took the Silver Canyon Rd: very difficult, even going down, even on an SUV. I'll probably right a trip review for this just to tell the troubles I put myself through. But hey, I bagged a 14ner!

Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2014


1st of my 2014 California 14ers. Encountered two herds of bighorn sheep. Two large snowfields blocked the road just below 14,000 feet. A use trail was developing.

Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2014
We didn't encounter any scrambling. There's a trail all the way to the top from the Barcroft gate where we camped & started the hike.

Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2014


Talk about your wind! 20-30 mph from the west and 34 degrees - non-stop - made for a test of will. With Brent & Dave. Greg persevered to 13,000' and stopped the madness for himself. Otherwise a nice little adventure. IVD? Of course!
