Third peak on a 7 day trip between Sawmill and Taboose Passes. Then traversed to Mount Pinchot for a great day in the mountains. Trip report.

From Pinchot  Sucess!

Dayhike from Armstrong Cyn (drove to 8300'). Descended Pinchot via steep southern chute to avoid high winds on the traverse. Boring slog up and down Wynne. Hit up Perkins afterward, then back down into the canyon for a bumpy ride home.

From Pinchot Pass  Sucess!

A fun, although somewhat loose, cruise up the 2nd/3rd class (depending on your route) ridge from the pass. Great climbing and great views!

Pinchot Pass  Sucess!

Camped at a lake below Lake Marjorie the 2nd night of a 5-day trip in the area with my bother. Came in and out from Taboose Pass, this was the only day we really saw anyone, soooo many people on the JMT. Up Wynne from Pinchot Pass. Perfect CA weather each day, bagging Striped, Goodale, Cardinal, Wynne, Pinchot, Arrow, and Pyramid during the trip.

from Pinchot Pass  Sucess!

Summited via West Ridge from Pinchot Pass. Fun. A little loose, but nice big blocks to play on, and you can make it as difficult or easy as you like. I kept the difficulty down, as I was mostly interested in speed. (Took 40 mins from the Pass for me).

Interestingly, I was climbing this at 8AM or so, and the sun was shining directly in my eyes the whole time (while looking up the ridge). Very difficult to do good route-finding!

N Ridge from Pinchot  Sucess!

First ones up for the year. Climbed with my friend Doug via Armstrong Canyon, camping on a high ridge just N of Perkins on the Crest. Climbed Pinchot - Wynne - Perkins on the same day. A near-perfect outing. The connecting ridge was lots of fun - but do be careful about the loose rock!

Full winter conditions beyond the Sierra Crest, but overall, low snow year made for a lot of rock showing and crappy snow.

Route Climbed: North Ridge ascent (traverse from Mt. Pinchot) / West Ridge descent Date Climbed: July 24, 2004  Sucess!

Pinchot-Wynne dayhike out of the Taboose Creek TH--a very enjoyable day revisiting an area I backpacked through a few years previously. The traverse from Mt. Pinchot was fun along the very crest of the connecting ridgeline, but the rock is terribly loose if you drop down from the spine at all.

Route Climbed: West Ridge from Pinchot Pass Date Climbed: July 3rd, 2004  Sucess!

A fun direct scramble off the pass, taking less than 2 hours roundtrip. Did it as part of my 2004 JMT through hike. Awesome views.
