Nice layover day peak while hiking the Muir Trail with Andy & Kevin. From our camp near Twin Lakes we picked our way up the West side.
Fun day hike...aside from starting several thousand feet bellow TH
This peak rose right above my camp so naturally I had to climb it.
Day 9 of the 2010 Sierra Challenge. Armstrong Canyon is not a good place to climb out of with a large group - too much loose, unstable rock. Trip Report.
fun SC '10 with Moosetracks and the gang.
Longest day of the SC, what a slog. Won't go back to Armstrong Canyon without snow (and skis). Had wanted to do Colosseum but balked since I was friggin' pooped.
Climbed the cl. 3 NE Ridge from the col on my way over from Colloseum. Descended the E/SE Face on my way to Perkins Pk.
Tough day on the Sierra Challenge.
Fighting a case of the lazies in camp, thought maybe about just scouting the area for later. Instead Scott and I headed up the SE slopes in the snow. Perfect for kick/plunge stepping. Awesome views.
From Colosseum Col with Daryn, Steve, Tim, Lisa, Brian, Jim, and Louise! Made a bee-line from the col, avoiding the ridge, for an easy class 2 climb. Came in from Armstrong Col the previous day, then on to Colosseum Mtn and Sawmill pass that night. Nice little peak! See pix at http://outdoors.webshots.com/album/559250706KwcBqN
summitted via NE Ridge from Cedric Wright-Colesseum Saddle... very nice route, very easy 3rd class.
Have done this a couple of times since this first time during overnight trips to Woods Lake. I have also integrated the traverse over to Colosseum on May 24, 1987.
Made the long truck up and over the pass in one day, camping in the Woods Lake Basin. Took off the next morning up the SE slope then descended the NE Ridge and traversed over to Colosseum Mt. Another beautiful day in the Sierras.
