I've yet to visit the Minarets, and have always been fascinated by them. Thanks for the great resource.
Nice page! The Minarets are on my must-visit list, inasmuch as Ken Minaret was first ascended and named for my grandfather Kenneth Adam (also F.A.-ed the Royal Arches) and his partner Kenny Davis. Great friends, great climbing partners, they both passed away within a day of each other in August 2005. If you have any photos that show Ken Minaret, I'd love to see them.
I hope to climb Ken on my next visit there. Here's the best pic I have of it, from the summit of Kehrlein.
this sure is an outstanding overview of one of the coolest places in the Range of Light. Thanks for posting.
Hope to get out there this coming summer!
Another masterpiece Bob! Nice!!!!
If you're climbing in the Minarets, you can help with the search for the remains of climber Matthew Greene by taking photos of summit register pages dating from ~7/12/13 to ~7/31/13, assuming it's safe and convenient to do so. Matt disappeared on July 17, 2013; it's thought he had an accident in the Ritter Range or on his way there from Mammoth.
We know Matt climbed certain Minarets (Clyde, Riegelhuth) and not others (Adams, Michael, Pridham). We’re mostly trying to find people who might have seen or spoken with him on or before the day he disappeared or might have noticed something amiss soon thereafter.

Bob, this page is full of excellent resources; we've found it very helpful.
