Robin and I got our usual Alpine Start™, leaving Bishop at 10 after a leisurely breakfast. There were a ton of cars in the parking area, and we saw most of those people coming down on our way up (I suspect that the majority really did get an alpine start). We summitted uneventfully, passed a few moments up there, then headed back to the car and home to Bishop for pizza and beer.

The last bit of road before the trailhead/gate was pretty fun in my Chevy Metro. I got a late start because I underestimated the driving time from Horton Creek campground, but it isn't a long hike, so it turned out fine. On the way down, a big pick-up truck full of college boys (researchers) was heading/bouncing up the "trail."

Spent night in truck getting acclimated (frost on inside of windshield in morning). Great trail and relatively gentile climb to top. Weather on top at 1:00 PM in mid 40s with 5-10 MPH wind and clear skies. The view from the top almost as good as the view from Mount Whitney. Hiking time 8 hours. A great peak to hike in October.

Solo. First time getting sick at altitude. Had to nap halfway. Almost vomitted. Took 9.5 hours to summit and almost got caught in a violent electrical storm. Came back to a dead battery. Got help from a guy who just pulled in as I got back to the TH.

Afternoon weather cooperated and I went up-- easy way to get to top of Great Basin but welcome after Yosemite. Take care on the road. Any regular car can make it all the way, but I saw an off-road edition Toyota Tacoma with a flat while I drove by (after offering help) in a convertible Mustang. Speed can kill your tires here; not much else can.

There were several other parties hiking this route the day I was there. Great views from the summit! Best view was sunrise as I drove to the trailhead!!

Suffered a bit of a mental fart on this one. I figured this would be a good way to stretch out my legs after biking 200 miles with 29k feet of climbing. Was about 48 and sunny at the gate so I only wore a polypro shirt with leg warmers and light gloves. At the summit it was 27 with 30-40 mph winds. An hour later it started to snow and I had lost most of the feeling in my face. Got back to the car for a rt of ~4h, cranked up the heater and cursed the road for the next 17 miles.

We took Mountain Bikes. The way up consisted of pedal-walk-pedal-walk-fix flat, pedal-walk-walk-walk. We had good weather all day and great views from the top. The descent was a blast!

A beautiful solo hike, with lots of alpine wildflowers. Freezing up top...I felt compelled to climb to the top of the building at the summit. I sat and stared at the great eastern escarpment of the Sierra...

Simple, easy 14er. Did it in shorts, down jacket, hat, gloves and trail runners. Got the oddest looks from people because I was in shorts, everyone made a comment. Wind was whipping but an easy up down. My buddy tagged along and got his first 14er so congratulations to him. Had fun but way too long.

Solely for "completion" purposes - hiked with Vendulka. Due to wildfires, views from the summit were very hazy. But bristlecone pines are awesome!

Got my first 14er on sunday September 4th Breathtaking! Did get to cheat a little. The Brancroft research center was having an open house so the gate was open which led to probably more than average visitors for one day. The bristlecones are awesome too. Plan to return!

Took advantage of open gate day and hiked White Mountain. The view was lousy due to wind blown smoke. Good hike.

A long road to a very cold and windy summit. The views were impressive, however, the hike itself was tedious.
