NW Slope  Sucess!

Awful ascent on mostly scree, all day in the baking Sun. The slope was not only sandy and painful to go up on, but also boulders were sliding downhill with no apparent reason. As I got to the top, an avalanche of boulders occured. I was terrified going down that chute after that; I cleared the chute in 15 minutes going downhill, always looking uphill for the next tumbling boulder.

North Ridge  Sucess!

Took us a while since we drove up from sea level the day before. Do not underestimate how much time it will take to complete this long ridge climb. Very nice position on this route. As Secor says, this III, 5.5 route has a couple of 5.7 moves!

Complete North Ridge   Sucess!

Climbed up the the north ridge from Owens Valley early saturday morning, made it to the third tower where we had to emergency bivouac due to the sudden storm that rolled in. Summited early the following morning. Amazing climb!!

North Ridge Epic  Sucess!

Climbed with a team of five. Two reached the top before it started snowing; the other three climbed the last 1,000 ft in snowy weather and didn't summit until dark.

N Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed N. Ridge with 4 others. Great climb, but turned bad after my partner and I summited. Our other party of 3 got stuck on headwall during a snow storm and spent the next 8 hrs trying to reach summit. After we got them up had to descend in dark, and after endless wondering around near the lakes finally found trail back to camp. Long day!

Birthday hike  Sucess!

Day hike from Meysan Lakes. Beautiful weather and we had the summit and area to ourselves despite the holiday weekend.

Tiring chute - 2014 SC Day 9  Sucess!

Intended to climb nearby 'Roscoe peak,' but was too tired out by that awful chute. Next time, I've got to pick a better route ...

Great views!  Sucess!

Hiked up the Meysan Lakes Trail to Grass Lake, then headed up the slope and chute. Plenty of big rocks to follow, first to the left, then middle, finally on the right, very little problem with sand. Missed the part about the false summits on the ridge so went over all of them, came back down the right way!

NW Slope  Sucess!

I enjoyed it, didn't seem like a slog to me at all.

Northwest Slope  Sucess!

Pretty sandy slope which made for a tedious ascent, but a relatively quick descent. There are some rocks on the sides of the chute to cling to to avoid some of the sand.

N-ridge  Sucess!

One long day trip. With all the nice bivy sites along the way, next time I think I want to use one of them. The views from the ridge are amazing.

North Ridge  Sucess!

Mary and I climbed this with a planned bivy after gaining the notch at the start of the ridge. Some excellent bivy ledges can be found with nice views of the lights down in Lone Pine. The route was much longer than expected, with multiple sections of 5th class climbing. We stayed almost entirely on the ridge crest. The descent is not straighforward, but we made it work and found ourselves at Grass Lake for the hike out. A bigger day than we were looking for.

Threesome  Sucess!

Standard route and north ridge  Sucess!

Not as loose as it looked, but I need to return for the north ridge.

Returned for the north ridge later. Other than one spicy section, it was not as committing or sustained as I had hoped. Trip report

Lone Pine Peak Northwest Slope  Sucess!

Solo hike July 01, 2011. Started from Whitney Portal campground at 6:30am on a warm July morning. Gained Grass Lake in no time through patches of snow and had lunch. Started up the Northwest Slope and found staying to far left edge of slope afforded easier footing. Once on the saddle, made the mistake of staying on the ridge and mounting several false summits. Made the summit as water ran out. Beautiful views. Will be back for winter ascent.

NW Slope from Meysan Lake Trailhead  Sucess!

Dayhiked from Meysan Lake trailhead with Jen Blackie and climb up the chute above Grass Lake. Could have done with a bit more snow as the loose rock up top was very unstable but a nice climb. Great views from up top.
