jaridgeThe Ridge Boys first fourteen'er.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2006

This was our highest peak so far. For me (49 years old)it was the next level up from my previous high Wheeler Peak in Great Basin National Park. For my 23 year old newly minted Marine it was his highest by about 4,000 feet. The weather was overcast most of the day and we only spent about 15 minutes at the summit because Mr. Thunder was announcing his presence. Great hike, hard to get used to the altitude especially when you live in Rochester, NY with an average height of about 200 feet. Next year, the big one, Mt. Whitney!

Wow, what a great peak to climb! I climbed this peak with my friends Duane, Andy, Cheryl, and 4wheelbob who hikes in a wheelchair and is attempting White Mountain Peak for the 4th time. Not sure if he made it to the top since I had to come back earlier than the rest. But when I left him he had made it further than he had before. The view from the top was obscured by haze - lots of smoke coming up from fires down south. But the hike was a good one and very rewarding. I grew up in Bishop and always loved the view looking up to the peak and now I can say I've looked down from it as well.

Other than a bit of altitude sickness sleeping at 12000 feet, pretty uneventful.

It felt so wrong summiting this on the day the Barcroft gate was open...but I'm still counting this one. Super easy hike with some nice views of the Palisades.

Lead a hike up with outdoorsclub.org. Made it to the summit in 2 hrs and 40 minutes. First 14'er. Hung out at the top for a long time, cold and beautiful. Great views, easy 14'er but well worth it.

My little Prius still looks ultra-tough covered with evidence of my backroads excursion to the trailhead. My first 14er! :)

Stayed Friday night and Grandview and Saturday night at the trailhead. Got started at 5:30am after a miserable and cold night in the car. Warmed up a bit after sunrise, and turned into a beautiful day. Took it nice and slow with a couple of stops for breakfast/hydration, summited around 10am, took in the breathtaking view for a while, and made a quick run back to the car. All around a great experience!

Climbed the day after Langley. Worked well for acclimating. The views from the top (and along the way) made the trip well worth it.

What a great peak! Easy too, the driving is the longest part.

With Thunderheads popping up and down the valley we weren't sure we'd have an opportunity to summit during our mid-week hike. We watched a rain storm pass the peak in the early AM and then had clear skys so we continued to the peak. With sun on the peak we noticed the clouds getting darker on the saddle we were going to have to cross to get back. Spent a worrying last 20min. in a hail and lighnting storm. Luckily, the lightning was more than a few miles away. Still closer than I would have liked. Had a nice chat with Roger and Al at the Barcroft Station while we waited out the lightning! Nice bunch of folks! The lightning stopped us on Mt. Langley two days later! :-(

Camped at 11,000 feet after driving up via the exciting Silver Canyon 4WD route. The lingering snow made for a long day, but Mark managed to afterwards fly us safely and quickly back to SJC in his fast Mooney.

Aside from the miserable drive, a flat tire, and sharing the mountain with more than 20 Marines in training, the climb the next morning was quick and somewhat enjoyable. The hike back seems to take forever. Made it up in 3:30, with half of the Marines passing us on the way up. A good conditioning hike, but with that drive, I doubt I'll ever return.

An early start means plenty of Marmot sightings on the way up. Hiked this one with my brother. Still a little snow near the summit. The Sierra still has plenty of north facing snow but the view was hazy. Might have been smoke blown up from the San Bernardino fires.

My girlfriend and I left Bishop on June 9th and walked through the White Mountains, reaching the summit six days later. We had planned to continue North to Boundary Peak and Nevada, but 50 mph winds and springs covered by snowfields turned us around. Go trek through the White Mountains - Sagehen Flat, Blanco Mountain, Cottonwood Basin and Tres Plumas Flat are all beautiful, unspoiled places!
