19 hour day driving from Reno, hiking up the mountain, then driving back to Reno. Good times.

We had an awesome time with the researchers / staff at the Barcroft WMRS and we were treated to the most spectacular view of the Milky Way we've ever seen with the naked eye the evening before summiting. At the top: beautiful views and weather, nice to see the High Sierra from the "other" side of Owens Valley.

Hiked the road from Barcroft Gate after camping the night at Grandview Campground. Bagged Mount Barcroft on the way back. Beautiful weather and only about 25 other people on the mountain. This was my 15th California county highpoint.

but the view more than made up for it. Plus, I found the landscape and geology to be very enjoyable.

The road to the trailhead is the hardest part! I've climbed it four times.

Was able to drive to the gate for the 14 mile r/t to the summit.
Awesome day in the 50's to 60's, some trail cutting required to get by some snow drifts but those should be gone in a couple of weeks.

Due to some early season snows and some unpassable snow drifts in my 2wd SUV, I had to park over 3 miles from the trailhead, making this normally 7 mile Class I ascent nearly 11 miles. I started about 6am in subfreezing temps with moderate wind. By the time I reached the observatory, my water bladder hose had frozen. I managed to thaw it out, ate some food, tucked the hose away and continue onto the summit in mounting winds. At about 13,000' elevation, my water bladder froze. I was too close to turn back, after driving all night from Orange County. I quickly made the summit, signed the register, and hauled out of there. I finally reached my vehicle 14 hours later in the dark and very thirsty.

Uneventful hike to the top

Mountain biked this peak with a friend. Was very rideable except for the last couple-hundred vertical feet. Rode down the entire way. It was a bit of a slog riding up the hill, but the way down made it all worthwhile.

hiker102First high altitude hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2005

This was an amazing hike of a 14,246 foot mountain in the high desert of central California. The landscape was barren and rocky, yet had a green hue from the short ground vegetation on many of the surrounding hills in the lower elevations. Take away the clear blue sky and replace it with total blackness and this location could probably pass for the moon...

An uneventful hike; ran into a few Summitposters at the top, which was cool.

My first 14'er. Parked at Barcroft gate and made the summit easily enough, but ended up walking on snow and ice more often than not. The view from the top (especially with the approaching storm) was well worth the effort. I would highly recommend this peak before any snow has fallen in the fall.

After acclimatizing on Whitney, we proceeded to run up, and then run down White Mountain. Snow on the top 1000ft. Very cool mountain!

I did not expect to love this outing, given the simple approach and hoards of people. But, the alpine desert landscape with its countless shades of aridity was charming and a great easy high altitude day.

This one considered to be the easiest one... I made attempt in April and had to turn back after 10 miles of 25 miles trek from the closed gate, as night temps drop down to 5F. Spent the night in August on the plateau between Barcroft and White. Temps dropped down to 20's. It is always windy here so go well prepared; there is no natural protection above the tree line. Stake your tent and use guy lines.

Ticked it off after getting stormed off the Sierras the day before. Lots of hail, but refused to make that drive again.
