Bishop Pass  Sucess!

It's a long slog but the view is worth it. Climbed with my girlfriend in 12hrs roundtrip (we are obviously not hardcore mountain climbers). Coming from San Diego the day before, the altitude gain was quite rough. Photos and Trip Report

Bishop Pass  Sucess!

Climbed with Ryan. Great view south -- Middle Pal, which we climbed the day after, is just peeking through between Mt Sill and North Pal. Pictures

West Slope  Sucess!

4th day of the Sierra Challenge. I was looking for an easier day than the challenge peak. It was a bit of a talus slog from the pass, but had great views.

New Route Climbed: Rolling Stones, 5.8+ III  Sucess!

Vlad and I had come to the Palisades last weekend to do a traverse from Thunderbolt Peak via the North Couloir to Mt Sill. As we had made our approach to camp the day prior extra fast, we decided to quickly climb Agassiz via the NE Face (II, 5.2).

Long story short, we got off route, climbed really dangerous loose rock (I dislodged a desk-sized one by hand-jamming it) and ended up on the summit at midnight, with recently refrozen snow making our descent to the east notch difficult without crampons. After a night of downclimbing around the snow and cliffs, we made it back to camp at 6am. All in all, we had been on the move for 20 hrs since leaving the trailhead!

The route had some stout 5.8 cracks, one overhanging, one offwidth, and one requiring a strong layback.

Route: West slope  Sucess!

Class 2 route still snowfilled, so climbed the rocks to the right of it for a mostly class 3 ascent. It was a long 12 1/2 day from the trailhead at South Lake.

West Slope  Sucess!

Climbed the leftmost chute with three others, mostly in snow. Pass was still completely buried. Conditions were excellent, weather was perfect. Wished we had crampons with us though. Had the mountain - and the whole Bishop Lake area - to ourselves.

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.
