QuensellBagged at last  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 17, 2007
White Mountain Peak was THE mountain I wanted to summit on my first visit to Bishop back in 2004, but it had wait until 2007 (it's a long way to come from the UK). The journey took five and a half hours as a solo climb (this is a lonely old peak if you do it on your own) but the views of the Eastern Sierra from the summit are second to none, as are the views over Nevada to the East (don't forget to check out the Bristlecone pines on the way up). Given the time and money, I would live in this area for years!!!

Third summit trip in as many years. Not difficult, but the views of the Sierra across the valley are unbelievable. I've heard the hike by full moon is fun - maybe next go 'round.

Hiked up in the late afternoon from the locked gate, slept on top, and hiked out past all the WMRS open house visitors in the morning.

A fun outing. Even got to balance a rock at the summit!

'Twas the 1 day in 2007 that the Barcroft research center was open to the public, and there was lots of traffic. The roadkill museum exhibit was an added plus!

Nice AM. 1:57 up, 1:34 down. Nice little herd of sheep at about 13,200' Ten by my count. I was in an anti-social mood so skipped the big Sierra Challenge group fest on Rodgers today.

Got an early start so we could watch the sun rise over the Sierra
What an incredible view. A hundred miles of the Sierra crest on one side, the great basin and Nevada on the other.

With 15 miles on a dirt road and only 2000 feet of elevation gain, I wasn't expecting much; I was presently surprised. This is some of the most beatiful terain I've seen.

With Rene' Renteria. Only two other parties there - one party of professors from Victoria, and two mountain bikers from Santa Barbara who got bad altitude sickness. Worth doing, but not worth repeating. Photos on my website

pleasant hike and nice views from summit, despite haze.

If anybody comes across a Raiders cap in the talus near the top, let me know. A sudden gust took it from me.

Hiked with my son, wife, and a friend. Second time to the summit. The dirt road approach to the trailhead seemed to take forever.

Dayhiked the South Face with the GF. Views of the Sierra were amazing. Sliced a tire on the way out which canceled plans to hit Telescope Peak the next day. Next time it will be the West Ridge in the winter...can't wait.
