P2K and pre-challenge warm-up  Sucess!

After a questionable start to the day at Tioga Pk, I thought there might be thunderstorms, rain, hail or snow, but everything turned out fine.

via Francis Lake  Sucess!

Sierra Club Peak Climbing Section private trip - 6 women. we camped at Francis Lake and stuck to the ridgeline for some fun easy bouldering. All made it to the top. I had a fall on the way down and dove head first into a boulder - ouch! Thunderbumpers built up and we plunge-stepped as quickly as we could most of the way down the sandy drainage where we could. Much harder than I expected but I'm out of shape from a protracted injury recovery. Very fun trip!

From Francis Lake  Sucess!

Sierra Club outing. About 2.7 miles from Rock Creek Lake to camp at Francis Lake, then the sub-ridge to the main ridge and the top. Great viewing peak.

Francis Lake  Sucess!

Fun climb. I found the terrain to be much better than I'd heard. Not very loose at all. I followed a gentle dry drainage up to the notch on the ridge and scambled up the stable talus from there. 3:15 up. Excellent views.

Francis Lake Trail  Sucess!

Perfect weather and spectacular views. The talus is usually wobbly which made for a suprisingly exhausting, but highly rewarding climb.

Dayhike from Rock Creek  Sucess!

Miles of talus. Left the summit quickly under threatening skies. Great views of the LL valley region and BCS.

Above Mt Abbott!  Sucess!

Hard to believe that this peak is higher than the nearby Emblem Peak, Mt. Abbott. Great views on a fun warm up hike before climbing some other peaks in the area. The talus and scree wasn't that bad with good route-finding. I have a feeling I'll be visiting this peak again sometime.

Route Climbed: From Rock Creek Lake via Francis Lake  Sucess!

About three hours to summit from RCL at a moderate pace. Nice little hike and great views. Decended a very loose and tedious class 2 chute to near Chicken Head Lake (Maybe the southern most chute between Morgan and LLP). Great View.

Good views  Sucess!

Backpacked to Francis Lake. The climb was easy but longer than I expected. Also not really class 1 as certain guidebooks might suggest. Great views of the area

North ridge route v Francis Lake  Sucess!

Great Climbing Day! I followed Brent Taylor(my climbing partner)from the Rock Creek Lake parking lot via Francis Lake to a summit at 1pm after 6 hours. Descent took 3 hrs.
Three very experienced climbers (out of a party of 4) arrived about half an hour later. We all had good fellowship chatting about climbs, climbers and food cravings after climbs. I welcome any emails from all of them.

Route Climbed: From Francis Lake Date Climbed: October 1999  Sucess!

A long solo slog from Francis Lake over snow-covered talus. Forgot my gaiters....whoops! Noticed the impressive couloir on Feather Peak. One of the best summit views of any mountain I've ever climbed.
