I had no intention of climbing this mountain, but after climbing Mt. Agassiz in the morning and still feeling like I had a lot of energy, I decided on climbing Mt. Goode. From Bishop Lake, it's mostly a miserable sand slog, but the climbing near the summit is more solid and has nice views of the area.
Up the east ridge from Bishop Lake. Though I think the ridge helped avoid some of the annoying sand on the SE Slope, I did not find the route to be very endearing.
Great views. Too bad the same can't be said for the snow. Most rotten snowpack I have ever crossed, facets...F'n facets. Postholing 'ball deep' was the norm rather than the exception above 11K.
Nice peak before heading back to the JMT.
6hrs ctc, fun
Southeast slope from Bishop Lake w/ Jillian
Did "Mt No Goode" (Pk 12916) and the traverse from it on the way up. Took the southeast slopes down. Both summits were worth checking out. Another day of great September cloud-free weather.
Part of a backpacking trip to Dusy Basin. Camped at Bishop Lake; scrambled up via the south east slope. Fun. Awesome light on the way down; got really good photos. =) Saw climbers on the North Buttress. I think they made it to the summit just in time right before the rain (we were already on the way down). I really liked this peak and summit.
Hiked and climbed with David Wright and Jeff Moffat on Day 6 of 2008 Sierra Challenge. We left Bishop Pass Trail at Bishop Lake on the approach.
I remember finding pleasant class 3 scrambling right on the ridge above the N face... good peak.
Good deal of snow from the previous weeks storm. Occasional posthole to mid-thigh depth. Good firm snow for cramponing most of the way and some mixed rock up to easy class 3 near the summit. Beautiful blue-bird skies. First mountaineering trip with Luciano136 and first since moving back to CA.
From Bishop Pass with Dave Gonzalez. Down via SE face
Traverse of the south ridge from peak 12,916 (No Goode) to Mt. Goode is an enjoyable class 3 scramble over good rock. The climb up Mt. No Goode is a misnomer as the climbing is fun class 3/4. Recommended over the slog up the S.E. slope.
Easy route and a nice view. Trip report is here
Snow was much better at the lower elevations
Nice climb from Bishop Pass. There was a medium-sized snow field on route. It was kind of steep, but the snow was soft. Could be bypassed by going to the left towards No-Goode and moving along the ridge.
Dayhike out of South Lake.
from South Lake. Nice clear summer day.
I took a bit of a roundabout route on the way up there (i guess I got confused by mt no goode)... took a more direct and more enjoyable route on the way down - cody made it up there too, I think
