Kuna  Sucess!

Two day hike. Camped at last lake before switchbacks. No other climbers in the morning. Terrific views. Only two places higher in YNP.

Kuna from Koip  Sucess!

A much better peak than Koip and where else can you see a B-24 wreck? Trip report.

West Ridge   Sucess!

Then Koip and Parker. Recommend the loop rather than the snoozefest of Koip and Parker.

Hefty Day  Sucess!

From Dana Mwds via traverse from Koip. More fun than Koip for sure with splendid views west.

Day Hike from Tioga  Sucess!

Long and exhausting day hike from the Mono Pass trailhead on Tioga Road. Kuna Glacier daunting with a blue tarn below at this time of year. Saw the plane wreckage on the way and stopped to pay our respects to the B-24 crew. No register but a very cool summit with a nice view of the Ritter Range.

perfect dayhike

Started at Mono Pass Trail head. Saw the switchbacks on the way up to Koip pass and almost turned around. It was a perfect weather day and we could see forever. Checked out the plane crash on the way over to Kuna (left me feeling very sad... Young men lost their lives. They must have been so scared and they almost made it over...). Kuna is very cool with the rocks pointing up. Long walk back and drive to Mammoth.

Standard route  Sucess!

Koip, Kuna and Parker, via standard approach from Tioga road. A good trail covers most of this distance, the off trail stuff is class 2.

from Koip  Sucess!

ended up climbing it twice as I discovered I had dropped my GPS after I returned to Koip. Did find the GPS near the wreckage on the way back

Day hike from Mono Pass TH via Koip  Sucess!

Easy walk from the trail to the summit of Koip, then a bit more use of hands needed to reach the top of Kuna. Ten hours round trip with a stop at the crash site.

Yay?  Sucess!

My first day of Sierra Challenge (day 3)-part of a 5 peak traverse. Standard no thrills or frills kind of peak, but cool little area. Traverse from Blacktop via Koip Crest which was the highlight of the day with Bob Burd and the gang.

From Kuna, nice scramble  Sucess!

A two day trip, pitched camp just over Parker Pass and summitted Koip and Kuna on day one, a fun scramble over from Koip, not much snow to contend with- no axe, or crampons involved, but lots of snow in Lyell Canyon.

North Ridge  Sucess!

From Helen Lake we climbed the class 3/4 wall to the west, reached the N/S ridge, and followed it to the summit of Kuna.
