Date Climbed: Jan 7, 2012


Decided to take advantage of the dry weather and hike White Mountain. The drive to the trailhead was clear and fine (came up Silver Canyon in a Tundra). No snow problems on the road (in January - crazy!). Started off for the summit in a comfortable 27 degrees. By the time we got over the ridge behind Barcroft the wind was blasting. At the saddle below the final switchbacks the wind and dropping temperatures finally got to be too much and we turned around. One in our party made the summit, another got just below it and turned around after practically being blown off the peak. Kestrel readings: 10 degree air temp, -19.4 degree windchill, sustained 40mph winds.

So, there is more to climbing in the winter than just snow. Who knew.

Nine hour slog with Ezra Danciu. Had some car problems and fuel concerns driving out. It's a long drive to the trailhead!

My first 14er. I went up as an acclimization hike, and chose this one because I wanted to see the Ancient Bristlecone Pine forest. I was delightfully suprised by how pretty the mountain and the views from the mountain where.

I heard this was an easy hike to see how one does at elevation. So I went into not expecting much more than that. Camped at the trailhead, then got a 4:30am start the next morning. The dawn, sunrise, and the views of the Eastern Sierras were incredible. I would definitely recommend this hike.

Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2011


We had an awesome time with the researchers / staff at the Barcroft WMRS and we were treated to the most spectacular view of the Milky Way we've ever seen with the naked eye the evening before summiting. At the top: beautiful views and weather, nice to see the High Sierra from the "other" side of Owens Valley.

Date Climbed: Aug 8, 2011


Hiked the road from Barcroft Gate after camping the night at Grandview Campground. Bagged Mount Barcroft on the way back. Beautiful weather and only about 25 other people on the mountain. This was my 15th California county highpoint.

but the view more than made up for it. Plus, I found the landscape and geology to be very enjoyable.

The road to the trailhead is the hardest part! I've climbed it four times.

Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2011


Was able to drive to the gate for the 14 mile r/t to the summit.
Awesome day in the 50's to 60's, some trail cutting required to get by some snow drifts but those should be gone in a couple of weeks.

EnFuegoLong Long Day Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 22, 2009


Due to some early season snows and some unpassable snow drifts in my 2wd SUV, I had to park over 3 miles from the trailhead, making this normally 7 mile Class I ascent nearly 11 miles. I started about 6am in subfreezing temps with moderate wind. By the time I reached the observatory, my water bladder hose had frozen. I managed to thaw it out, ate some food, tucked the hose away and continue onto the summit in mounting winds. At about 13,000' elevation, my water bladder froze. I was too close to turn back, after driving all night from Orange County. I quickly made the summit, signed the register, and hauled out of there. I finally reached my vehicle 14 hours later in the dark and very thirsty.
