climbed NE side, the descended SE side
Loop from Agnew Meadows with Tommey Jo. 18.5 hours car-to-car with a couple of 30 minute breaks. In retrospect, Rush Creek TH might have been a bit faster and doing the loop in reverse (Electra then Davis) better but who really knows? Exited over North Clinch Pass after a crappy traverse under Rodgers.
*Long* ridge, mostly talus with a couple 4th class bits. Part of a Rodgers-Electra-Davis loop. Trip report
Enjoyable climb up the north ridge directly from Point 12573, after doing Rodgers earlier in the day.
From southern Twin Island Lake, I contoured to south-east slope, then took class 1-2 route to the top. Found an empty register box at the summit. On the way back, I followed an unnamed stream that plunges down to the San Joaquin River canyon, class 2 at the steepest part.
Day one of the 2008 Sierra Challenge, a delightful, if tiring, outing. Trip Report
Second visit to this peak. This time as a dayhike from Silver Lake via Clinch Pass. Climbed with Richard P, Rick K and Adam J on day 1 of the 2008 Sierra Challenge.
From Isberg Pass TH via Foerster. Descended into the Lyell Fork from Foerster to skirt Ansel Adams and climbed to the north ridge from Lake 10702. Left the pack behind and scrambled to the top. Great views! From the N ridge, dropped down the east side and bivied at ~11000ft near a couple of unnamed lakes.
A good aerobic workout from the pass.
Davis-Electra dayhike out of Silver Lake. Stunning scenery. But it's a tough day!
