An easy scramble up mostly low angle sand to the rocky summit area. Spectacular view of all the high SEKI peaks from the top!
One night backpacking trip. Climbed Newcomb and Chamberlin next day.
Overnight hike from Horseshoe Meadows with Chris. I climbed Guyot early on day 2, then traversed over to Mt. Chamberlain and back to our camp at Rock Creek before hiking all the way back to Horseshoe Meadows. RIP Pat, a great climbing partner and friend.
Unlike Bob, I didn't find much talus -- mostly sand. Great views but not a fun climb.
A long haul for a pile of talus, with Rick Kent. Trip Report
Strangely enough, I was on this peak the same day as farrisgl, and we were on the same trajectory (toward Mt. Whitney), though their backpack took a different exit route.
I especially enjoyed the summit scramble and the views to knock your socks off.
Partners: Crusty Bag-Ettes (especially Candace).
Climbed this nice peak on third day of an 8 day trek from Horseshoe Meadows via Cottonwood Pass on way to Whitney. Ended our trip in Onion Valley.
