CaHikrEasy Summit  Sucess!
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.

Uneventful hike to the top

Smithman123Mountain Bike


Mountain biked this peak with a friend. Was very rideable except for the last couple-hundred vertical feet. Rode down the entire way. It was a bit of a slog riding up the hill, but the way down made it all worthwhile.

hiker102First high altitude hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2005


This was an amazing hike of a 14,246 foot mountain in the high desert of central California. The landscape was barren and rocky, yet had a green hue from the short ground vegetation on many of the surrounding hills in the lower elevations. Take away the clear blue sky and replace it with total blackness and this location could probably pass for the moon...

An uneventful hike; ran into a few Summitposters at the top, which was cool.

PSchubertFirst Snows  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 17, 2010


My first 14'er. Parked at Barcroft gate and made the summit easily enough, but ended up walking on snow and ice more often than not. The view from the top (especially with the approaching storm) was well worth the effort. I would highly recommend this peak before any snow has fallen in the fall.

platypiiUnique among CA 14ers  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 28, 2009


After acclimatizing on Whitney, we proceeded to run up, and then run down White Mountain. Snow on the top 1000ft. Very cool mountain!

rowjimmyDidn't expect to love it  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 5, 2010


I did not expect to love this outing, given the simple approach and hoards of people. But, the alpine desert landscape with its countless shades of aridity was charming and a great easy high altitude day.

zolek7On the 2nd try!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2010


This one considered to be the easiest one... I made attempt in April and had to turn back after 10 miles of 25 miles trek from the closed gate, as night temps drop down to 5F. Spent the night in August on the plateau between Barcroft and White. Temps dropped down to 20's. It is always windy here so go well prepared; there is no natural protection above the tree line. Stake your tent and use guy lines.

Ticked it off after getting stormed off the Sierras the day before. Lots of hail, but refused to make that drive again.

edge17From Barcroft Gate  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2010
Camped out by the gate. Lot of researchers around around. Wasn't terribly enjoyable with all the motorbike and SUVs going back and forth. Took longer than anticipated. We left around 7 in the morning and got back around 3:15 in the afternoon.

thexcatBarcroft Gate  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2010


Hiked up with AJ. Longer hike than expected. We slept at the gate, woke up and headed out at 7am, made it back by ~3pm. Researchers were on the peak - did not enjoy the SUVs & motorbikes on trail.

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.

tyler_durdeninteresting day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2010
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.
