North Couloir Ski  Sucess!

Climbed SE gulley and skied down north couloir; wrapped around through the meadow and climbed back up to east ridge and skied back to truck on VA Lakes Road. Fantastic conditions and the mountain all to myself!

Ridge Traverse from Olsen to Black and around to Dunderberg  Sucess!

Traversed the ridge around Virginia Lakes with Eric Su and Mason. The ridge from Peak 11385 to the southwest slope of Dunderberg was fun, snowy class 3-4.

SE Ridge  Sucess!

Very windy day with Todd, but great views. Descent down the SW slope is not a fun one.

Wow that was hard!  Sucess!

Okay, to be fair, I still had a cold and that made it far worse. But despite talk about 0% of normal snowpack in California, that certainly was not the case! The snow impacted our trip and forced us to take a harder route down. It didn't help on the way up either! We got 10 on the summit and descended a steep gully that wasn't a good way to go. But we made it. I have now done pretty much all the major dayhike peaks in Virginia Lakes.

From Kavenaugh Ridge  Sucess!

This would normally be a class-1 route, but the north chute was 75% under fresh snow (from the late September storm), and some detours were needed to avoid the white stuff. New SPS summit register placed in August 2014. Fourteen parties have signed up the register since.

From Kavenaugh Ridge ORV  Sucess!

Hiked up from the Kavenaugh Ridge ORV off of the spur road that joins the Virginia Lake and Green Creek roads.

And then followed the NE ridge to the summit. Probably easier but longer to take the ORV road all the way up to the Kavenaugh Ridge plateau but this wasn't a bad route.

Pic and commentary are here.

Summit Registry (and the whole summit cairn) have gone missing since I was last up here in 2004.

From Virginia Lakes TH  Sucess!

The obvious ridge is mostly well-behaved talus on the way up. I unfortunately wasn't able to find a boot-ski on the way down and, after suffering a bit, just took the ridge.
Easy hike, cool views into northern Yosemite.

SE Ridge  Sucess!

Decided to do this peak while everyone else sat in the air conditioned Bridgeport library. Turned out to be the best peak of the ten that I did over 5 days. Some loose talus but nowhere near what I was warned about.

Southwest slope  Sucess!

Lots and lots of loose scree and a bit of scrambling. Clouds was coming in as I was approaching the summit and on the way down the clouds closed in around me, but as fast as they came in they disappeared

2.5hrs to summit. Crux was between 10800' and 11400' - some slightly exposed 3rd class on loose rock.
