East chute   Sucess!

A nice crampon up the chute with good conditions and lots and lots of snow. Great views of Whitney and all the high peaks from the summit!

From Arc Pass  Sucess!

After climbing Mcadie I came back down Ark Pass and went up the sandy slope to Irvine. Once at the top of the chute I didn’t know that the summit was all the way to the East, so I half-climbed each false summit until I got to the real one.

NE ridge from Camp Lake, first summit on the way to Mallory and LeConte on a cloudy day. Nice views of the Whitney group from the ridge.

With McAdie  Sucess!

Amazing views of Whitney Basin and Mcadie. Traversed over to Irvine after Mcadie via Arc Pass. Awesome day!! This peak has been long overdue!

On the way to Mallory...almost  Sucess!

While exploring a route from Meysan Lake to Mt Mallory, my friend and I summited Mt Irvine, but turned around just 0.2 miles from Mallory due to exposure and winds gusting to at least 40 mph. The last signature on the register was from October of last year.

East Couloir  Sucess!

What a shit pile! Constant loose rock and scree most of the way. Escaped somewhat by exiting early along south wall - Class 4. This peak wins the Total Crap Award this year so far. blegh! Descended shitty east chute and continued to Candlelight.... and got snowed on.

from Arc Pass  Sucess!

Hiked up from Soldier Lakes, ascended the first chute south of Arc Pass, descended the second chute south of the pass. The second chute was better; this is probably the route Secor describes to "Richins Pass."

A 3fer  Sucess!

We hiked up the Meysan Lakes Trail and camped the 1st night on a saddle above the lake on the ridge up to Irvine. Then we traversed over to Mallory and LeConte before going down a gully and camping below Pickering. The next day we climbed Pickering, Joe Devel and Chamberlin and then down to Crabtree Lakes. The following day we went from Crabtree to the JMT and and climbed up Discovery Pinnacle before going down the Whitney Trail.

Arc Pass  Sucess!

The sandy slide down to Meysan was a fitting and desirable end to the day after four others in the area.

East Couloir  Sucess!

The complete absence of snow and the rubble filled couloir looked like a suffer fest from Camp lake. Wasn't as bad as it looked.

East Couloir  Sucess!

Spur of the moment decision to do the East Couloir. Very fast moving up, quite soft on the way down. Great views.
