A side trip after hiking to peak, 11,440. Tagged a bunch of other garbage peaks in the area afterwards. Love the White Mountains though.
Hiked up Mt Barcroft on my return trip from White Mountain Peak.
Tagged Barcroft on return from White Mountain Peak, even though it is only about 450 feet of extra gain I felt the altitude heading up this one after having no trouble at any other point on the day.
On the way back from White and an unnamed 13er.
Tagged this on the way up to White.
Pics and commentary here.
Not a lick of snow on this dry September day. Nice views of White Mountain as expected. Saw group of half dozen deer on way down. Saw dozen or so hunters out this day also.
I made the sidetrip over to this one on the way down from White.
After a mentally and physically taxing climb of Mt Morrison the previous day, I decided on a rest day exploring the whites. I've ignored poor mt Barcroft on my ascents of White Mountain, so today it was time to pay it a visit. I forgot how amazing the views were up here. Great day!
Just tooling around getting some walking in at altitude. Seems like a little more then a mile of off trail from the telescope dome.
30 min to the top, great views of White Mountain Peak!
I hiked this one on the way back down from White Mountain Peak.
Veered off the White Mountain trail on the way back from White Mt. Peak, scrambled through a bunch of boulders and made it to the top of this one. Nice views, signed the register, and went down the south side and met up with the main trail a little before the Barcroft Facility.
Did this one a couple/few years back.
While descending East Side of White Mountain, I ditched the trail and scrambled the short scree fest to the top of this peak. Easy, and fun to look back on White from here.
First climbed this one as a consolation peak on a day when the weather on White Mtn made me turn back. I've been back several times because it's a beautiful, rarely visited place. Easy climb from the White Mountain trailhead and you can spend lots of time staring at the views since you are still relatively close to the trail head. Good warm up hike for White Mountain or if the drive in to White Mtn trailhead took longer than expected and you still want to bag a nice peak for your efforts.
Did 5 Eastern Sierra peaks and this one in between.
