Raymond Peak  Sucess!

From Ebbets Pass. PCT to Pennsylvania Creek, then up Raymond's south face. Followed the ridge SW and went cross country to make a loop, and eventually rejoin the PCT near Eagle Creek.

The long way  Sucess!

Took the Tamarack Trail to PCT, once to the peak I traversed at the base to the NW Slope.

From Sunset Lake  Sucess!

Took the PCT then the Raymond Lake trail up to Raymond Lake, then up the very steep slope to the peak, snow in the chutes were a bit iffy due to the steepness, would recommend waiting until later in summer for a cleaner ascent. Had some trouble finding the high point among the rock spires. Advice for future attempts - just aim towards the left as heading up from the lake to avoid needless scrambling over the ridge towers. TR is HERE.

Reynolds and Raymond with dog , round trip from Indian Valley.  Sucess!

Started at the big meadow in Indian Valley at 10AM and headed E toward Reynolds, working into the basin W of the peak, featuring open terrain, some forest, and windy stream chasms. Worked up to the notch N of Reynolds just N of a thumb rock. Dog stayed while I scrambled up the the summit and returned (class 3). We then descended W and contoured N to the pass at the head of Pennsylvania Creek, and then descended to the base of Raymond's SE slope and went up that, went over to the W side and up to Raymond, crossing back over the ridge higher up then to the summit (not quite class 3 -- dog was happy.) We descended back S to where we first topped the ridge, then descended the basin to the W until meeting the Crest Trail, returning the the Wet Meadows TH, and walking the road back to truck, arriving 4PM.

From Raymond Lake  Sucess!

Left from Lower Sunset Lake. Followed the PCT to the turnoff for Raymond Lake and climbed from there. My dog made the summit also. Plenty of clouds made for a nice day of climbing.

Views were upset by east side fires. Descended west face (very loose!). Water in Raymond Lake taste like shit.

Nov. Dayhike  Sucess!

Very nice dayhike, nearly complete snow-free in November! Ascended the SW Ridge from Wet Meadows and descended one of the chutes on the West face. Interesting lenticulars were forming as we left the Hope Valley, maybe winter finally arrived!

Southwest face  Sucess!

Up the S.W. face and then down to Raymond lake and out on the PCT to the trailhead at Sunset lake. This was a fine day in the Mokelumne Wilderness

W. and SE. faces  Sucess!

Climbed the loose W. face with three others. Descended the even looser SE. face/chute back to the PCT. A long day that probably didn't need to have been that long (originally planning on Reynolds also)

From Raymond Lake  Sucess!

Walked up from Raymond Lake. What is all of this about class 2/3 scrambling? The route I took was mostly class 1, with a little easy class 2 at the end.

Smoky  Sucess!

When reminiscing, we refer to the Mokolumne Wilderness as the Smokey Wilderness because of our experience here. Climbed Camiaca Peak the day before and woke up in the back country the next day to very thick smoke from a fire to the east. It was pretty thick and alarming, so we headed out. Glad we saw the beautiful scenery on the way in.
