Boring and easy walk-up. Had this terrific dog follow us nearly up to the summit from the science compond. I plan on riding my mountain bike to the top in June 2003, from Olympia, WA as part of yet another a bike/climb trip.

Walked up from the locked gate with ScottyS in 2:10 with 2 inches of fresh snow on the trail. Most of it was melted by the time we got to the top. This is by far the easiest CA 14er to summit despite a hypoxic tourist's oxygen starved argument on the summit. For more info and pics, visit my White Mountain Peak page.

I took along my sleeping bag and stove and some dog food (for the dog). I just hung out all day meeting everybody, and watching the changing light on the Sierra. Great sunset, Awesome sunrise!

A sign posted at the trailhead reads: "Violent Storms May Appear Unexpectedly - Be Prepared." Believe this. I set out under blue skies, and was greeted at the summit with freezing hail and snow (see trip report "Obsession"). All in all, a fantastic hike - but cold. Definitely bring warm clothes.

First 14er. Rode my bike up to 14,000, then hiked up to the summit over scree and snow. Amazing trip!

I biked up from the gate, which was really nice, except the last switchbacks up the summit really hurt. Has anybody ridden this? I resorted to pushing my bike... But the way down was awesome. After needing 21/2 hours for the way up, I blasted down in 45 min, I just love my Cannondale Jekyll :)

I saw about a dozen Bighorn Sheep and the weather was really nice and warm (late afternoon).

The next day, I biked Silver Canyon, I can't believe some people actually do this two trips in one day...

RockhopperRoute Climbed: 4wd road Date Climbed: september 3rd, 2002  Sucess!

Rockhopper

My first peak in the United States. We rented a 4wd car in San Francisco because of the comments on Summitpost.com about the bad condition of the road (I was glad we did). Enjoyed the bristlecone trees on the way to the Barcroft gate.



I was on the summit together with my wife Astrid and cousin Ferry. Although it's an easy hike, it was my worst ever. We arrived in the US just a few days earlier and due to improper acclimatization I didn't feel strong. Made it to the summit anyway. Sunny day with a clear view on the summit. Some clouds on the way back.

Nice hike despite the barren landscape. Saw lots of marmots and a few bighorn sheep just off the trail. 13 of the 15 in our group made it to the top. Super windy on top and during descent.

Cool hike..our first fourteener! Started at around 11am and got back to the car about 8 hours later. Trail was awesome. Looked like a moonscape. We have many photos and a trip report on our website at Natural Born Hikers

Link is on home page for brief time and then can be found under TRAILS. Thanks

I arrived at 12:30am and was the only one car camped at the locked gate. Leftover chicken wire was haunting the parking lot. Big, fat marmots were only seen near the summit, not sucking green goo out of my radiator hose. It took me 2 hours to traverse the 16 miles of rough dirt road in a low clearance passenger vehicle, and the last 4 were hell. (I obviously don't love my car.) It's pure torture when I could have outrun my car to the trailhead. I started off at 5:30am (brrrr cold) and finished off with a sunburn on my lips. The sky was very hazy and dusty, so the view was lacking, and the forest fire in the Southern Sierra's didn't help. I was the first one to the summit that morning, and the first to snatch the Very Berry PowerBar (my fav flavor). Not to be greedy, I replaced it with some Vanilla GU and a ClifBar.

Went on the open house day; they opened up the Barcroft Gate.

I'm too lazy to write the details of the trip. Email me.

ScottySRoute Climbed: Barcroft approach road, direct variation to the summit Date Climbed: June 22, 2002  Sucess!

ScottyS

Dayhiked with bearbnz and our wives on a sweet day just after some freshie accumulation. After passing through the valley after the telescope site, we took a direct route to the summit hut, passing about 15 tourists on the way up. On the return to the saddle below the peak, I found my wife waiting to be escorted to the top --- I promptly turned around and took her up the direct route as well.

1st summit time: 2hrs 10min

Hiked with brother Ron. To make it more challenging I had no food or water (though I carried a liter). I think Josh called this high-altitude deprivation training. :)

5hrs CTC. Trip Report

The road was in fine shape. We took a Grand Am rental averaging about 30mph (that was almost more exciting than the climb). Weather was quite fine as well, after 5 days of thunderstorms in the Mammoth area.

I hiked this stark peak with a lively group of 11 ham operators, peak baggers, and hi-techy-witty types from San Diego and southern CA, NV and IN. We had heavy hail, snow, lightning and thunder on summer solstice. Camped out on a high plain just above the observatory and Barcroft facility. Breath taking view of the east escarpment of the Sierra from the top.

We just had to make this easiest of CA 14ers more of a challenge, I mean people mountain bike to the summit for cryin' out loud. So we invited our two friends B & R to come with us. No big deal, except they also have a 1.5 and 3 year old. Too big to carry, too little to hike on their own. This made the humble climb up White mountain a true adventure. Balancing was tricky in the high winds, and you don't dare slip and tumble with someone else's kid on your back.

I don't know if it was hypoxia or shock, but the kiddies were very well behaved. They looked pretty dopey and strung out on the summit, but then again, we all did after packing them all the way up there. Next time, I'll stick to the mountain bike.
