allisondianeeWoo hoo! my 3rd California 14er!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 29, 2017


Loved the hike, the views were great. Fairly easy except for the altitude gave me a bit of elevation sickness that made me a little slower.

In my opinion one of the best views in CA...breathtaking vista of Sierra crest on one side and aerial view over the basin and range province on the other.

Perfect weather and not many people on the mountain. White Mountain Peak was my 31st ultra prominence peak and 4th California 14er.

Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2016
4th time up white mountain peak. This time hiked with Harvey, Mary and Katie. All made it- 4 1/2 hours up and 3 hours down. Got a chance to see inside the mountain top research station. Glad we went on Saturday and didn't have to deal with the crowds on Sunday when road was open to Barcroft.

Although the trail is easy class 1 from Barcroft gate, the altitude really hit on the last stretch of switchbacks! Incomparable views, however, and the never-ending road to the trailhead was OK with 2wd HC, driven carefully.

The drive was slower than expected off of Highway 395. Camped at the Barcroft gate. Wonderful views! Great time.

Beautiful and cold. Took a nice nap on the summit. Didn't see another soul the entire day.

FairweatherLots of Bighorn Sheep  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2011


Road bikes from the gate, but only made it about 3 miles. Dropped the bikes and continued the rest of the way. Large herd of Bighorns were hanging out near the summit.
Bikes helped a little on the return, but without shocks, it was a bumpy ride.
Suzi stayed in the trailer in Mammoth while Todd and I camped at Grandview for the night before the hike. Todd drove down Silver Canyon on the way back - fun.

JoeyrooGot Hailed On  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 2, 2013


Saw a pack of about 15 big horn sheep during the descent. Then as I about 1/4 mi from reaching the end of the trail it started hailing the size of marbles. I found shelter in a Porta Potty as I waited out the brunt of the storm. When I opened the door, the entire ground was covered in about 2" of hail and ice.

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

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...
