East face  Sucess!

from Long Lake, after bagging Lookout Peak. It's a decent climb, but mostly class 2 unless you venture out onto the ridges; and the rock isn't as solid as it is in other parts of LLV. Summit pillar is cool.

East Ridge  Sucess!

A quality scramble up the east ridge. The upper third is where it's at -- great climbing. Slogged down the SE side and then crossed back over the ridge halfway down to return to Ruby Lake.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Fresh from recent snow storm (early season storm). Took slight variation to gain the east ridge which resulted in some 4th class in the snow. Great scramble, staying on the ridge as much as possible provided some very fun 3rd class climbing.

Intended to continue onto Mills, but there was a fair amount of snow and this would have taken too long.

East Ridge  Sucess!

36 hours after a snow storm, this was a spectacular ascent adorned with the spice of 18" snow drifts, verglass, and perfect weather. Most excellent long scramble! But why the hell are there 2 summit registers?!

From Little Lakes Valley..

Probably one of my very favorite day hikes from Little Lakes Valley, the East Ridge is a fun scramble to the top! The view of BCS, Dade, The Hourglass, and Peppermint Peak are just spectacular!

Kind of scary

Traversed from Mono Pass to the summit. Slightly scary. Had intentions of the rock creek traverse but felt lazy and called it a day.

Ruby-Mills Traverse  Sucess!

With Bob Burd. Up the East Ridge and then along some of the best ridge work that I've ever done (this only one week after the Palisades traverse).
