Made it up to Scimitar Pass. Climbing partner was done and not in the mood for more. I quickly scrambled up Mount Jepson, then returned to partner, who was resting on the pass. It took 7 hours to get him down to the base camp, in the dark. We were camped behind the marshy area at the opening of the approach to Scimitar. Did not find the camp. Spent the evening in the open.
With Palisade Crest, for the 2009 Sierra Challenge. An easy boulder-hop with a disappointing notebook-paper register, but nice views.
This was not the first time I went over Scimitar Pass. But this pass sure is one of the most impressive Sierra crest crossings.
Climbed this after Gandolf Peak (Palisade Crest).
Day seven of the 2004 Sierra Challenge, ten of us started out from Glacier Lodge, summited with Mark after tagging Palisade Crest. Joe had beat us by a few hours. Trip Report
"Bag it, tag it, sell it to the butcher in the store."
I dayhiked this peak as a consolation prize for wussing out on soloing Gandalf Peak on the Palisade Crest for Day #7 of the Sierra Challenge
