SE gully  Sucess!

Skied the steep gully directly above VA Lakes trailhead... bullet proof on top and softening to perfect corn near the bottom. Ran a 2nd lap up the VA Lakes bowl to the west.

East Ridge  Sucess!

When I got to the east summit, I found huge dark clouds building over the main Sierra crest. I literally ran to the top of the main west peak scawled my name in the register, took a couple of pictures and ran back. It snowed only briefly as I descended the long chute to the southeast. Guess I could've spent more time on top. It snowed hard on Tioga on the way home and I was lucky not to have to put on the chains.

Dumb on Dunderberg  Sucess!

Film jammed up, slogging up the scree castle of my dreams. Got some good shots of Dunders fine views, out-weighing the climb. Down the south slope of funless tediousness rubble.

Dunderberg Meadow Road  Sucess!

Nice to have a clear smokeless sky after all the California wildfires this year. The views were great.

SE Ridge

No snow, nothing but loose scree. A large boulder rocked and rolled across one of my friends knee, so we turned back for some other peaks. Will try again in the winter.

Route Climbed: SW Slopes

The whole south face was melted out. A combination of late start, not enough time, and no snow made us turn around at 10 am. The climb was a slog up talus and scree. We wanted to stick to the ridge but the rock was loose so the hand holds were really sketchy. I will try this mountain again but only if there is snow.
