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.
From a camp at Saddlerock Lake. A great blue sky day, but fairly cold! Great views!
Solo day hike from south lake, enjoyed the hike, loved the views.
Big slog, Awesome views.
lots of fun
Bonus peak for the 05 Sierra Challenge. From Isosceles Pk, headed over to Agassiz Col and on to the summit.
Hiked in from Soutlake with two friends on our way to Thunderbolt pass. Nice views from the summit.
This was an amazing and beautiful hike. This was my first hike and I am hooked.
Great views up there. I did it car to car with my dog Mason in six hours. Lots of Sky Pilot on the ascent.
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.
Lots of talus hopping on the way but a great, airy summit
My first solo summit. A not too difficult climb, fairly obvious route and a spectacular view.
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.
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!
Jim Browsky must wear a cap.
made it to the top in 2hrs and 15 min from South Lake,could of broke 2hrs if I hadn't stopped to talk so much
This was my first summit and I enjoyed myself very much.
