San Joaquin  Sucess!

Bailed on climbing in Yosemite due to a bad weather forecast and raced up this instead as thunder clouds built.

Smoke evasion  Sucess!

Thankfully Yosemite's Ferguson fire did not dull the views, which were awesome. Register dates from 2012 and is in surprisingly good condition -- a trail running trio just ahead of me was the first to summit in a week, and I saw no other hikers behind me. Intense rain a couple days before had partially washed out the first steep downhill section of the trail.

Nice hike  Sucess!

Breezy conditions made this a very pleasant hike, since it can get quite hot here otherwise. Postcard views the whole way...

Rest Day  Sucess!

After dayhiking Middle Palisade the day before, this was a pleasant 12.1 mile hike along the ridge line from Minaret Summit. Although a 4x4 road can be found to drive up another nearly two miles, I just hiked it in the afternoon and was done in five hours. Fantastic views of the Minarets, Banner, Ritter, Mono Lake, the Glass Mountain Range, and even all the way to Boundary and Montgomery.

Post-Holio!  Sucess!

From Minaret Vista and snaking along the ridge the day after a great snowfall. Ground coverage was anything from dry cinder to crotch-deep fresh snow. Lots of rime and tall drifts. Beautiful cold day to get first prints in the snow. Tagged Two Teets as well. :)

north ridge, x-c from agnew pass (and the rush creek trailhead). the views of banner and ritter are just insane from here.

A side trip  Sucess!

A side trip from our 2 days backpacking trip to 1000 Island Lake.
Day 1: Agnew Meadows TH->Shadow Lake->Garnet Lake->Thousand Island Lake;
Day 2: Thousand Island Lake->PCT->San Joaquin Mtn->Agnew Meadows TH
1000 Island Lake is a gem in the high sierra!

From Mammoth Ski Resort  Sucess!

With MD, our second attempt. Two years earlier we were thwarted by brutal winds, also during winter.

11hrs ctc. Spectacular views. Ice ax was very handy after dead man summit. Carried but did not end up using crampons and snow shoes.

Sweet ridge hike from Minaret Summit  Sucess!

Great views along the entire ridge. Climbed the east Teat and then San Joaquin on a very windy day. Had champagne with a Sierra Club group on descent. Two days later hiked to Ediza Lake which had great views of San Joaquin.

Superb views  Sucess!

Took the 4x4 road the first two miles to the end, then followed the trail to the summit, climbing the teet on the way. The hike was better than I expected, but far too sandy.

Stunning views here, this peak likely has the highest fantastic view to tedious slog ratios of any I have ever been on.
