East Ridge  Sucess!

Superb scrambling up the east ridge from Saddlebag Lake. Wonderful views and a wonderful day. Down via Alpine Lake. Luckily I started early and it didn't start raining until after I got back and made it down to Lee Vining.

ascent by glacier and central couloir  Sucess!

Ascent by the glacier up to the unpassable bergshrund of the central couloir. This bergshrund can be avoided by the loose rocks on the right, then back to the couloir above the bergshrund, with some exposure then up to the ridge.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed with sodapants, from Sawmill Campground. Four hours up, two hours down. From Alpine Lake, we took snow fields below summit plateau to get to the top segment of East Ridge. Deep sun cups and soft snow slowed us down. A photo report is available.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Fun climb up the East Ridge from Sawmill Camp via Alpine Lake. Very nice class 3 with a little exposure on the last ridge to the summit.

West Ridge: Agony!

Jon and I were hoping to climb the West Ridge. Unfortunately we ended ended up traversing left pass the base of the ridge and climbed an arrete instead that was on the left of a massive gully. We had a sweet climb up sublime 4th easy 5th class granite only to summit on peaklet that was seperated from the summit via a deep notch. Doh! Wrong ridge but a sweet climb nonetheless. The descent was hellacious though we had to trudge through some deep snow and ran out of water.

Route Climbed: West Route Date Climbed: June 9, 2007  Sucess!

great day out climbing with ChuckO. Took us about 14:30 car-to-car. Some time was wasted by route-find error (mine) in which we followed up the incorrect drainage, and then had to climb up and over the east ridge to get into the correct one. Total time on route was ~4:30. Fun climb.

West Ridge  Sucess!

With Kurt (thanks Buddy!). Great day. Would agree with the description "exposed". Simul-climbed most, belayed a few spots.

West ridge  Sucess!

Kind of a chilly day, but nice. Climbed ropeless with Doug. Easier than I thought it would be.

West Ridge, Almost

Momentous day. Unfortunately we jumped on the ridge behind the west ridge, and ended up on a little peaklet looking across a notch at the summit.

Y couloir  Sucess!

Fun snow climb, longer than it looks from the start of the route. Great spring skiing from the bottom of the couloir back to my camp...

East Ridge from Alpine Lake  Sucess!

What a quaint summit!
A giant reptile raising its head,
Its horrendous neck we climb.

East Ridge Route

The trip up was just spectacular. I didn't make it up the summit ridge though, too exposed for me back then. I can't wait to get back up there.

climbing and snowboarding

still enough snow for some late season snowboarding. Up the west ridge, followed by a fun ride down the glacier.

W face to N ridge  Sucess!

We were shooting for w ridge but saw nice rock to the left and I just went for it. Ending up finishing on n ridge was fun. Glad I read that route description too.

West Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked to Youngs Lakes. Got hailed on. Early wake up so we could beat the t-storms. Did the West Ridge. On the summit by 11:00 am. Beat the t-storms. Hiked back to camp, broke camp, and out to the Meadows by 6:30 pm. Long day.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Snuck up and down before a brilliant hail and lightening storm. Great peak!

north ridge, winter conditions  Sucess!

Hiked the road from where it's gated (about 14-20 miles,not sure) then snowshoed into the backcountry to set up camp for 12 days. Climbed the North ridge under winter conditions, poor visibility due to being in the cloud, but no wind. Took 22 hours tent to tent.
