Route Climbed: Southwest slope from Bishop Pass Date Climbed: October 14, 2005  Sucess!

Another spectacular Sierra Peak! Hiking to Agassiz was an unexpected bonus for me. I went to meet some buddies to go fishing and I ended up on the summit of Agassiz. Special thanks to Bob & Phil for the favorable interpretation of the rules of the annual "Octoberfish" event that allowed us to hike during the high holy days of fishing. I did catch 3 fish at Long Lake on the hike out.

Route Climbed: Bishop Pass Date Climbed: 06/18/05  Sucess!

Got to do half the climb as a snow climb in one of the chutes ... and other half was a nice boulder scramble. Went up on one of the ribs, which had a few short sections of fun Class 3. Still a ton of snow up in the Sierras.

Climbed this long before I was in summit post. Went up a gully full of snow. Incredible views of the palisades.

After climbing from Bishop Pass, a straight forward class 2, Agassiz rewards with a spledid veiw of the Palisades. I summited on the first day of my '04 loop trip from the Bishop Pass trail, over Napsack Pass, and Potluck Pass, then returned via the JMT to the Dusy basin trail and return.

Route Climbed: Holliman Variation of the West Slope Date Climbed: Oct 14th, 2004  Sucess!

I took Matthew's suggestion and headed up the 1st righthand chute on the West side. Once I obtained the chute the rock was very nice class 2-3 all the way, a much more enjoyable climb than expected. I stayed toward the ridgeline to keep the difficulty up, but near the top it is possible to exit the chute via class 2.

A steep class 2 route with lots of scree and talus. Snow in the chute made climbing a little difficult. Had to move to steeper sections (almost class 3 but not really) to avoid most of the snow. View from the summit was spectacular!
