Climbed Aggie to get a better look at the Great White Fang. Seven mile round trip and a bit of a bushwhack without snow. Want to come back in the winter and take a shot at the north chute on White Fang.
Pleasant stroll through the snow, tagged with mt. McGee
Nice views of Baldwin and the bunch
This was the 3rd time we climbed Aggie and our 3rd different approach.
First time we came in from McGee creek area. This was 2008.@nd time was from Morrison Road drive in to where the switchbacks start to Mc Gee in July 12,2010 and this time from Convict Lake Campground area,July 22,2013.
Very nice climbing conditions (not so much for skiing) in the 2nd chute from left of Hippie Chutes, the rest of the ascent was a basic slog of firm snow and library book rock ridge. View of Fang and Morrison were unbeatable!
Did some rental car damage on the way to the trailhead. Oops. It was a big rock.
The slope from McGee Creek is a sand sage brush romp to the east ridge. I've done worse.
