From Italy Pass  Sucess!

Still tons of snow about 10k for this 4th of July weekend. The hardest part of the route by far was walking through a couple miles of sunxups to the pass. A nice scramble from there though.

Granite Park Day Hike  Sucess!

I love Granite Park, and was in great shape so I did this in a single day. A very active contemporary Sierra Club member, Arun Mahanjan established a route on this at the millennium, but it was too tough for me, so i just took the ridge from the Italy Pass saddle. Up and RT in a day.

Day 6 left Black Bear Lake through Italy Pass to Summit  Sucess!

Pine Creek  Sucess!

Dayhike from Pine Creek Trailhead over Italy Pass. Granite Park is a really nice area to hike through. At the summit, I saw that the Chalfant Lakes drainage looked really scenic as well and decided to return that way to Honeymoon Lake starting a little below Italy Pass. It seems like the Chalfant Lakes area gets less traffic than Granite Park and the hiking was just as easy as following the trail through Granite Park.

From Italy Pass  Sucess!

The highlight was spending the day in Granite Park - a gorgeous glacial cirque. The scramble was not bad. The view of BCS from the summit is outstanding. I did not find a summit register - it may have been buried under some snow drifts, but I doubt it.

Up West, Down South  Sucess!

Standard cow trail up west ridge, but stayed off the sand and kept the boulder action about Class 3. Astounding views! Attempted to descend east face but it seemed like it might cliff out or get Class 5, so we opted to go back up and descend south face...30 minutes well spent. Good day!

Northwest Face  Sucess!

Decided to do something different at took a chute up the northwest face above Toe Lake. Came in via Cox Col from Rock Creek and hit Bear Creek Spire on the way. Wasn't sure how the northeast ridge of Julius Caesar would go so I did a steep traverse on the loose talus fans at about 12000 feet until I found a chute that I liked. Loose in places but other times it was just fine. Excellent afternoon and night at Lake Italy followed.

Defeated

We hiked up from below Granite Park on a mountain rescue training. We got within a few hundred vertical feet of the summit when we decided to turn around due to the precarious nature of many of the VW bug-sized boulders that had to be scrambled over. Getting rescued when you're on a rescue training is never good, so descent was the prudent decision.

From Italy Pass  Sucess!

Dayhike from Pine Creek TH as part of the 2010 Sierra challenge. Descended a loose, eastern chute to Chalfant lakes. Gorgeous summit view, and Granite park was effing amazing too!

From Italy Pass  Sucess!

Really windy day on the climb up to Italy Pass. Unusually, the wind subsided as we climbed - I'm not used to the weather getting *better* as I climb. Anyways, the system blew through and we had a wonderful time on the summit.

Panorama video I took on the summit:

1975  Sucess!

I climbed this peak many years ago, the summer of 1975. It was on a backpacking trip that my parents sent me on. (something like summer camp). Anyway, it was these early backpacks that really got me hooked on the Sierra. I remember this peak well. It was really my first Sierra summit. The only other mountain I had ever climbed up to this point was Mount Lassen with my dad.
