as always I might say :) Gorgeous pictures, too. Great work, Guido
Thanks Guido. As you know it's a good bit of work involved to put a good one together, but always satisfying once it's done. Appreciate the comment.
It certainly is...
been sitting there a long time. Good to see you covered it. Secor briefly covers it in his Sierra book. Great pics too!
Thanks so much Noondueler. I really enjoyed the area there too.
So Secor does. I had completely overlooked it, I checked the wrong section. Had no info at all when I headed out. But 'brief' is a bit of an understatement. In my edition there's only 6 words on the peak!
...I was waiting to hear what Darija had to say. Actually, sounds like a great peak; remote, little-climbed.
I don't know if this one is hardcore enough for her, maybe if done in a day. But it is a fun one and the ridge is very enjoyable. One of my favorite weekends this summer.
Did not see a soul the entire trip- great place to get away. The summit register had not been signed since 2005 (still hasn't). Much of that is due to it's current lack of a writing instrument. It doesn't get a lot of traffic though. Thanks MoapaPk.
I might have the wrong peak, but I think this one might get an official name soon. According to Mammoth Times, it may soon be Mt. Andrea Lawrence. Sorry if I have the wrong peak (see photo in link below)!
Wow you're right. The latest named peak in the Sierra. That's it in the picture from the southeast. I had received an email about some peak getting this name, I had no idea it might be this one and hadn't taken the time to look at it yet.
Updated the page a little bit... I figure this won't get vetoed (though perhaps next time Barbara Boxer will follow better protocol and consult with the SP page owner before renaming peaks in the area). :-)
Will clean it up more when I return from vacation in a couple of weeks. Thanks for highlighting!
