Route Climbed: East Slope Via Hanging Valley Date Climbed: August 21

The hanging valley seemed to drag on forever and was very tiring. We reached the confluence of the Hanging valley / East Slope, but we were bombarded by clouds and rain. We didn't reach the summit, and descended down the slope on the other side of peak 10,858. A very long descent this way, especially through the wind and rain.

Route Climbed: East Slope via the hanging valley above Convict Lake Date Climbed: July 2002  Sucess!

I first climbed this peak by the same route alone on July 25, 1994. I had previously tried the West Ridge Direct with James Reed and Joey Macaluso, but we were turned back by darkness within shouting distance of the summit. This ridge is incredibly loose! The 2nd East Ridge climb, made with ScottyS, was much more casual except for the T-Storms dropping rain and hail on our heads. Made the top during a lull in the storms, and hightailed it back to the lake. For more detailed info, visit my Mt.Morrison page.

Route Climbed: East Slope via hanging valley south of Convict Date Climbed: July, 2002  Sucess!

Dayhiked with bearbnz after bailing early off of the NE Williamson ridge. Dodged more T-storms all the way up! Started from the "day use" parking area at 1205 and ended at 1740 for a total time of 5hrs 35min.

Route Climbed: south ridge Date Climbed: September, 1997  Sucess!

I made a base camp in a high saddle above and SW of Convict Lake. I made a summit attempt from here up a horrendously loose scree couloir on the NW side. I got to the top of the couloir after much effort only to be turned around by a difficult loose looking class 4-5 ridge to the summit. The next day I circumnavigated the mountain, crossed a large snowfield, and climbed the south ridge with a class 3-4 variation. Nice climb; scarry loose rock everywhere! I climbed this peak previously in 1968 with my dad, in preparation for climbing in the Alps.

Day hiked from Convict Lake. Final approach difficult due to loose rocks. Great view from the summit.

Route Climbed: East Slope Date Climbed: July 5, 1997  Sucess!

Aside from the loose rock, this is a fairly easy peak to climb due to the short approach. I got a late start because I ran the Mammoth Lakes 10K in the morning, and it was pretty warm climbing up the lower slopes. I almost turned back due to apathy, but am glad I kept going. The views are pretty nice, too. Trip report
