From Nine Lakes  Sucess!

Up from camp at the head of the basin to the saddle with Stewart, then along the 3rd class ridge. Day 4 of a 7-day backpack. Trip report.

SW slopes  Sucess!

Overnight to Tamarack to do a two-fer but ran out of gas to summit Lion Rock on the first day. Except for some talus by the lake and just below the final climb, the route was excellent with nice slabs and none of the brush mentioned by Secor. Ran into Luca and his friend Jon just after they climbed Lion Rock as well.

Day hike from Crescent Meadows-ancient summit register, from 1950's-19 hour effort. Nice area of Sierra

SW Slopes  Sucess!

A nice climb through meadows and slabs up to some less than stellar scree near the top. Tamarack is an awesome lake with gorgeous golden trout cruising the shallows. An awesome infrequently visited peak.

NW Face / SW Slopes  Sucess!

Not as burly as Matthew's day, it took me two trips to get both Triple Divide and Lion Rock. Beautiful area, but so far from civilization. Trip Report

SW Ridge (ascent) / South Slopes (descent)  Sucess!

Long--very long--dayhike of Lion Rock and Triple Divide Peak out of Crescent Meadow. Approached the peak from Tamarack Lake, and gained the southernmost west ridge when it looked preferable to the loose talus on the south slopes. The ridge was more solid, and had some enjoyable class 3 scrambling. Recommended.

The NE Chute had a lot of snow, and didn't look doable without an axe/crampons, so I had to descend to the south and traverse around to Lion Pass to make my way over to Triple Divide.

Route Climbed: Southwest Ridge Date Climbed: August 2004  Sucess!

Climbed from Tamarack Lake up to SW Ridge; fantastic views into Nine Lake Basin. Good air quality allowed a view of the Palisades way off in the distance.
