Slippery slope  Sucess!

Got a thorn stuck through my pantleg into my knee on the way up from Inspiration Point... I wonder if the use trail has deteriorated in the past few years? Done with Muir Peak, Easter Rock, and Peak 4910 from Eaton Saddle.

Stopped at Echo Mountain and Inspiration Point on the way. Watch out for Poodle Dog Brush on the way from Inspiration Point up to the summit.

easy  Sucess!

i've done this one a whole bunch. my favorite path is to take echo>sam merrill>ip>castle canyon. gets crowded on weekends someimes but its just an overall good hike. 11 miles or so with that loop from lake ave. its also fun in the snow.

Mount Lowe Loop  Sucess!

I hiked up from Lake Ave to tag Muir, Inspiration and Mount Lowe, however it now looks like I climbed the wrong peak for Muir, I climbed peak 4668 ft not peak 4688 ft. duh!

Here is my route and some other stuff:

Who Knew?  Sucess!

I have hiked up Castle Canyon many times but never knew there was a sign-in up on that ridge. I also did Muir Peak. Some argument about what is truly Muir Peak in both sign-ins, I called it Muir West to add to the confusion.

Beautiful Spot  Sucess!

First leg in a training regimen for Mt. Whitney. Lovely spot and a nice steep canyon below it.

Up Castle Canyon  Sucess!

I never tire of Castle Canyon; sometimes I leave the trail and scoot straight up the middle of the canyon for short ways. My first time to Inspiration Peak. Interesting to find in the summit register for Feb. 2000 the name of my friend Patty Rambert, hardcore climber and SP member, who was killed in a climbing accident on Mt. Mendel last May 2006.
