Old Army  Sucess!

Did this as part of a solo 4 day backpacking trip from Cottonwood Lakes to the summit of Whitney via the West side and descending the East side.

Great Trip  Sucess!

Hike up to the lakes and camped out with my Dad. Woke up next morning bagged the peak and headed home. The next week started a new job selling insurance which I hated! Awesome two day trip. Very interesting scenery

Class 2 route from New Army Pass  Sucess!

Difficult hiking day. Joanna and I went up to New Army pass. The hiker's trail is very obvious and easy ground but the altitude gave me trouble. Dramatic cliff to the North East and interesting views of the Keeler Needle and Whitney. Unfortunately I was too tired to enjoy it thoroughly. We used this as a jump-off point for acclimatization for Whitney.

Army Pass via Cottonwood  Sucess!

Contrary to popular belief this is a beautiful area via the Cottonwood Lakes, and it is not an "easy" fourteener. Srambling at 13,000 feet the way we did is no easy task! The best advise I heard about routefinding secondhand after summitting was that whenever you come to a fork in the road, stay left.

Great Day  Sucess!

Picture perfect day. Not a cloud in the sky, and no wind. My third try. First was with family, they turned back, next a friend he wanted to turn back, so I decided to solo. Thanks to Bob who I met on the trail for the support and direction to reach the summit. Parking lot to summit and back in 11 hours.

Day hike  Sucess!

Accidentally came up the forth face and hit some class 3 rock - nothing too dicey, though. Beautiful mountain meadows on the way up and spectacular views from the summit. Car to car in 11 hours.

Loop from Horseshoe  Sucess!

22-mile loop up New Army & down Army on warm, cloudless and nearly windless day. Fun descent down a chute in the south face.

So much sand. Lots of fun though. Great views at top, especially to the north.

Summited via NE Couloir  Sucess!

Had a great weekend climb with Ray Regalado and Alex "the badass" Barber. Next season we all promised we'd return for a ski descent. A big thanks to Moose for the Beta.

Easy Peasy  Sucess!

Did this one the Labor Day weekend after a couple weeks on the trail so acclimated well and was strong. Hiked it with a friend who knew the route well so I was able to walk on up without much concern for routefinding. Lots of fun on a warm day with big poofy cottonball clouds. Great memory.

NE Couloir  Sucess!

Very warm temperatures made for some soft snow on the last pitch of the couloir. Nice skiing but some small slides in the couloir in the afternoon.

Tuttle Creek  Sucess!

As of alot of climbs in the 88-92 time frame unsure of the date. Funny thing for one of the easier 14ers I had one of my closest calls with a ~200 slab sliding over my stomach as I limbo'ed down slope. Funky.

COLD Thanksgiving weekend  Sucess!

Not much snow in the Sierra this fall so we drove over Tioga pass and spent two nights camped by Lake 4. Incredibly cold but luckily no wind, and as it would turn out no snow of any significance anywhere either.

The first afternoon Lake 4 was 1/3 frozen, and maybe 1/4 inch thick at most where we camped. All weekend we could hear sounds from the lakes as they froze over, and by the time we left Lake 4 was completely frozen and took some aggression with an ice axe to get through over 1" of ice.

Normal Route  Sucess!

Climbed Langley with my good bud Kamyar. It was a good second 14er for him after I drug him up Tyndall where he almost shite himself. We spent that Saturday fishing lake 4 and up and back to the car on Sunday. Standing on the summit made me wish I had a base chute!
