We started up the wrong chute (right of the standard route) but then traversed over about 2/3 of the way up. After summitting we took the standard route back down. Stunning views up top!
Wow, what a view of the Palisades! I highly recommend this one.
It looks like we climbed it the day after Mrolph.
A great day hike from South Lake. I got bored with the loose rock in the center of the gully and climbed out to a rib between the gullies (class 4 to gain the rib then class 2-3, fairly solid rock) then follwed it up to where it petered out several hundred feet below the summit. Great view of the Palisades!
Climbed the middle gully facing west on Agassiz. A relatively easy scramble after 500 verticle feet of loose scree and talus. Class 2 - 3. "Popped" up to the summit ridge at 13,600 feet and walked to the summit. Very warm (80 degrees) at the summit and calm. Spectacular views!
This is a rather easy class 1-2 route from Bishop Pass that takes just over an hour. The view of the Palisades from the top is well worth it.
