Splendid scrambling to chute and along ridge, sure didn't care for the steep loose scree in the upper section of the chute though. Terrific peak for viewing the colorful Convict area and pointy Rock Creek peaks.
Fun day hike up past Steelhead Lake to Stanford Col, and then up the East Ridge. Returned via the West Ridge, past Crocker Lake and back down McGee Canyon. Nice ridge traverse on a beautiful mountain. I am surprised this doesn't get climbed more often.
Climbed with brother Jon
From Big McGee lake,to awesome Hopkins Pass Trail, along the Sierra Crest to the top, got beat up by 60+mph winds. Cool bivy cave on the SW of the false summit.
This was a fun class 3 scramble from Pioneer Basin. There is some lose stuff but it is avoidable. Recommended.
Climbed this one with Mt. Huntington on a beautiful day in early July. Trip Report
