Nice climb  Sucess!

Nice climb with a friend and our two teenage boys. Started from our camp at Saddlerock Lake at 8:45 and hit Bishop pass about an hour later. We spent about 30 minutes trying to decide which chute to take, and finally took the normal chute and summitted at 12:15. Storms were coming in so we descended a few hundred feet for lunch, but were back to camp at about 3:00, just as the rain started.
We saw two other climbers descending as we were ascending. They had started from South Lake at 6:30 a.m. and spent about an hour at the top of Agassiz.

ankle redemption  Sucess!

Three days before I thought my foot would be in cast for a month. Pro tip: Don't take vertigo-inducing medication before a trip to the Sierra.

I went right (S) of the normal chute for ascent; it went all the way to 13200', modest class 3. To me it was greatly preferable to balancing on boulders at a time when I had little balance.

Another West Slope/Chute  Sucess!

Feeling under the weather with perfect weather. Long drawn out climb for me, didn't enjoy much of it but the views from summit were worth a few extra minutes. Puked at the base on descent under the watchful eye of a marmot. :P

West Slope  Sucess!

View made the talus fest worthwhile.

West Slopes  Sucess!

Great views at the top, nice hike to Bishop Pass. Be sure to go up the right gully, I went up the wrong one and it was very loose and unpleasant. Even up the right gully it's a slog. 3:15 car to summit.

From Bishop pass w Deb and Dave. Got on some ridge w black stone that made it more fun for some of the way up. REALLY NICE SUMMIT VIEW, however, making the slog up worth it

From Bishop Lake  Sucess!

Climbed the talus shoot. Great views on top. Vowed to avoid class 2 talus on future endeavors.

NW Slope  Sucess!

Solo climb from a bivy at Bishop Pass. Hiked into Palisade Basin (over ThunderBolt Pass) after the Agassiz climb. How nice !!

Fun peak  Sucess!

Went up the inviting chute at the base of the largest lake atop Bishop pass. Much lose rock in the actual chute. About 3/4 the way up, the chute ends at a dark wall. It took some short class 4 climbs to get over the ridge into the next chute to the north, but easy class 2 to the summit. Coming down, followed a steeper chute on the north side that led into a snow patch. Much better choice for going up I would think. Solid class 2 the whole way. This route ends with a giant boulder in the middle of nowhere between the large lake and the small lake to the north. It's hard to miss.

Wonderful climb up - not so great down  Sucess!

This was a wonderful climb. It took about 1h 30 minutes from Bishop Pass to the summit. I had to wait for my other hiking buddies. The way down wasn't bad at first, but the lower slopes had some loose rocks, and it was quite difficult the further down towards Bishop Pass that I went. Still, a perfect day. Surprised I did not find a summit register.

Birthday Scramble!  Sucess!

Evening scramble from Bishop Pass. Signed the register at 6:40pm, had some great evening views, and scurried down just in time to avoid the dark!

southern west chutes  Sucess!

slogged up some shale in the far right before traversing north a couple and climbing up a ridge with lots of interesting formations before hitting a headwall type thing. dropped into the class 2 about 2/3 the way up or so and took it to summit. descended the easy gully. register was empty

Agassiz Pass  Sucess!

With Al on the 8th day in came up from Dusy Basin which was a bitch. Took no time to summit from the top of the pass, but Al had enough and he waited there at the saddle. The hot springs and beers in Mammoth beckoned.
