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!

Barcroft gate to summit, with my Dad. Wonderful views! The White Mountains are quite an amazing place.

DukeJHBighorn Sheep and Surprise Snow  Sucess!
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.

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.

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!

Took advantage of open gate day to Barcroft, but drove from Nevada that day, so didn't start until noon. Kids (age 1 and 2) got to ~13k. elev. Wife took them back to the car cause it was nap time.

DariaWest Ridge winter dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2014


Complete West Ridge completed solo as a 16 hour dayhike. What a majestic, monstrous ridge with 10,000 ft. of gain....wild with sustained knife edge and route obstacles in winter starting at or just below the 13,000 ft. level. as I did not bring ice axe or crampons, and wore running shoes, I had to do some 4th class climbing to get around some steep and exposed snow traverses.

Ice cold winds at the summit and just below it. What a beautiful expansive view of winter atop the white mountain summit. It is such a privilege to summit these peaks in winter, they have such a desolate and abandoned feel.

Absolutely brutal...and it seemed like ages to get down the final 4,000 ft.

BobD320 mile day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 17, 2011


A snow drift blocked the road about 3 miles before the gate so it was 10 miles up and 10 miles back on a short autumn day. Beautiful colors of red, white, brown, and black on the main summit massif. Wow. Everyone says what a yawner this peak is. Not so, definitely worth the time and effort.

danblockSolo morning hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2013
I drove up to the gate after hiking Split Mtn. It took forever in a Hyundai Tiburon, but I made it. I found a spot to sleep in the ditch next to the trail. I woke up and headed out before 5:00 a.m. Nice peaceful walk up to the top by my lonesome for my 8th 14'er.

The worst part of the whole climb is the road getting in. I had 2 car sick passengers. The up and down is a bit challenging, but all in all there were smiles all around

Clear skies and a little wind, made for a nice day. The sierra Nevada looked pretty awesome from the summit. Started at 8:28 a.m. Bacroft trail head to the top and back in a little under 5 & 1/2 hours. Ran for about 4 of the 14 miles.

With plenty of snow and a strong, never ending wind we made it up to the top of this giant.

What a surreal landscape! The views on Sierra Nevada & the desert are fantastic.

We loved it.

A recent snow storm let this peak live up to its monicker. The downside was that the jeep road accumulated snow drifts so a lot of cross country snow slogging.

Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2013


Long slog! Camped at Grandview. White Mountain itself was cooler than I expected - lots of interesting rock colors versus a pile of rubble. Hike felt long and my friend nearly threw up at the top. I felt great but was beat down by the length of the hike. we had also gotten a late start due to a flat tire on the dirt road.

dakineFirst 14er  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2010
My nephew and I drove a 91 honda civic up the road. No wind, no clouds, crystal clear. First time 14er, I had climbed Telescope Peak a few days earlier. Dragged myself up the final switchbacks. Going down was fast but hated the 300 foot uphill section. Got back to the car in the most incredible sunset. On the drive back, almost hit several owls (I think) on the road. Surreal day.

spacemonkeyVia 4x4 Road/Barcroft Gate  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 3, 2013


Car to car, 7 hours 15 min. Ran into a herd (~30) of Big Horn Sheep. Glad it was overcast and cool/chilly/cold. Would be heinous if it were hot/sunny up there. Exposed the whole way with no water anywhere. The road up to the Barcroft gate was not as bad as described by some. Low clearance vehicles would not have any issues, but you wouldn't want to drive very fast. If you're impatient, then the road might give you problems

TyC3 highest in California in a week  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2013


Took a trip down to California again this year to do Shasta, then White Mountain, and then Whitney. Was over 100 degrees and wore flip flops to the top (not the best idea).
