DrewidMtn Bike Descent  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2010


A stark and brutal hike in a lunar landscape. I highly recommend dragging a mtn bike with you to increase the excitement on the otherwise slog of a descent. Kinda underestimated this one. Though technically very easy, it still requires good conditioning, those last switchbacks above 13k were um....tougher than I thought they'd be. Killer views of course.

Made the summit - nice hike but weather wasn't cooperating - started sunny, clouds rolled in, at summit had tiny amount of snowflakes. On hike back clouds gathered and wind picked up eventually it started hailing with thunder threatening (but not a big problem) and very windy with 50 degree temperature. Quite an adventure.

tfac2010Take Two  Sucess!


Had a great hike and a great day with my father in law. We should all be in such good shape as we get older. Slept in the truck at the gates of the NASA base and hiked up the next day. Summitted with no problems what so ever. Had tried to solo earlier in the year, but due to snow and road conditions had to start much further away and ran out of steam.

Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2002


My first 14er, back in 2002. Before I was in good hiking shape, so my memory is that is was more difficult than any other 14er I've done. I'd like to go back and do it again now that I know what the hell I'm doing out there. I remember watching marmots dropping out from cars at the trailhead and being grateful for the chickenwire fence we'd brought along.

Date Climbed: May 15, 2010
A friend and I left LA to head to White Mtn for a climb and we stopped in Lone Pine to check on conditions and supplies...needless to say the road to White Mtn from the California side is now closed and not supposed to be open until June 10 (Barcroft gate route).

Princess Buttercup

Left the TH at 0200, hit the summit for sunrise, cooked a mahvelous b-fast of sausage, pancakes, coffee, and champagne. A most memorable way to do an easy peak.

Drove from Vegas, camped at the locked gate, hiked 3 hours 45 minutes to the summit. Took a detour and did Barcroft Mountain on the way back.

Mountained bike on the downhill and walked most of the uphill. Relatively easy hike, all trail and no obstacles. Was a little tired from Monty and Boundary the day before. Smoke from the fires limited the view a little.

Easy hike with beautiful and unique views of the eastern wall of the Sierra. This mountain range has a very special feel to it. A trip to the bristlecones afterward is a must!

KaraUnexpected Joy  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2009


What a treat! I was only told it was a 'walk-up'. But the 14 miles round trip w/3500' was wholesome. Went the day *after* they open it to Bancroft...so I had the summit and return to myself. What a treat, what a beautiful mountain, unlike any other 14er. Bike would be the way to go.

ShawnSecond time  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2009


Cold/windy start at the gate, but the hike up was awesome with just a long sleeve shirt, pants and hat. Very comfortable the entire time. Summit was actually still and great temperature, cool and comfortable. Views were stellar in all directions, awesome 360 degree views in all directions. Labor Day Weekend, so quite a few people, but it actually was nice and met some cool people. Summited with wife and 2 friends, all had a great time.

Finally made it to the summit after having to bail in a snow storm a few years back. Great views from the summit! I really like the landscape. We saw lots of marmots but no big horn sheep.

Bagged this one several times. Took both my sons up on different occasions to bag their first 14er. I love the White Mountains and this peak never disappoints.

Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2009


Mountain biked from the Barcroft gate. Enjoyed a windless summit with beautiful views. The ride down took us a little over an hour. Mountain biking down was an awesome experience for a non-mountain biker, I wish I could do that on every summit.

Acclimation hike for a trip up Whitney the next day.
Slept at Barcroft Gate. (Note to the Koreans who got up at 4:30- your tents were *not* soundproof)

Pics are here.
