Easy peasy.

From Meysan Lake  Sucess!

Climbed in a blizzard. The snow in the chutes above Meysan Lake made it much more fun.

Chute-o-Rama!!!  Sucess!

What Deb said...
Wish we had ice tools.

Some Chute  Sucess!

Blair and I summitted Mallory via Meysan Lake Trail and "some chute" along the eastern slope. Said named chute was mostly frozen snow/bullet ice, it was a damn shame we didn't have tools. Would have saved us some precious time and hair-raising slip & slide Class 3 along the beautiful walls. YES, it was a long slogging trip up, very quick down. Got to see Venus rise!

East Slope  Sucess!

My partner and I climbed up from Meysan Lake in good crampon conditions. Later on (after deciding to skip the traverse to Irvine), the snow softened up enough for some good glissading back down toward the lake.

Winter ascent from Tuttle Creek  Sucess!

Ascended from Tuttle creek in winter conditions. Lots of snow. Camped at around 9,500ft. made the summit at 12:00pm (in 6 hours from camp). Back at the car by 8:00pm that same day.

First Date  Sucess!

I had just met this girl and we decided we liked each other pretty well so we went backpacking together in the John Muir Wilderness. She didn't know what she was getting herself into! We hiked in to Meysan Lake and the weather went south immediately. For the next two days we were trapped in the tent while it rained and hailed continuously. Needless to say, we got to know each other very well in that time.

Anyway, finally on the third day the weather cleared and we climbed the treacherous snow and scree and summitted to wonderful views of Sequioa/Kings Canyon NP, Mt. Whitney, and the Owens Valley. Unfortunately, the skies began thundering and hailing again while we were still at 13k feet. After a harrowing descent through the storm we again holed up at Meysan lake for a couple more days.

Guys, this is the best way to test a potential mate. If she can handle a trip like this and you can spend a lot of time couped up in a tent with her, keep her. And yes, we're still together!

Up the East Slope....  Sucess!

Went with a group including Edd below, up the east slope, l o t s of loose scree and talus, most of the way. We intended to bag Irvine as well but had problems finding the chute down to the bowl and the clouds and thunder started coming in. Will be back for Irvine, probably from the other side to avoid having to go back up that loose crap again.

Traverse from Irvine  Sucess!

Solo dayhike linkup of Irvine, Mallory, and LeConte. Great day!
I stayed on the ridge from Irvine around to Mallory, staying mostly on the ridge crest, sometimes dropping to the left to speed up the traverse. Fun climbing!

traverse from irvine  Sucess!

fun summit block.

East Slope  Sucess!

Led a Sierra Club group up the gully to the left of the snow-filled one. Weather, the large group, and the inability to quickly locate the exact spot to cross over the ridge precluded a climb of Irvine. Traversed back to our ascent chute and back to camp just as the thunder and rain started.

And I agree with Matthew. This was the second time I've been up that slope (the first for LeConte last year) and I think that's enough for a lifetime.

From all around!  Sucess!

McAdie-Mallory-Irvine loop via Consultation Lake. Apparently I got a taste for just about every route on this peak. From the saddle near Arc Pass, I tried first to make a direct ridgeline traverse to Mallory from the North(failed - got cliffed out after some tough 4th/5th moves), so descended 1000 ft on the West side and ascended again from the South. Descended the East ridge and traversed to Irvine. Needless to say, I didn't like this peak very much - but thats very much my own fault!
