Route Climbed: Minaret Summit  Sucess!

My wife and I got a break from the smoke, sort of, and hiked up San Joaquin from the Minaret Summit parking lot. Excellent views of the Ansel Adams Wilderness. We also bagged the lower "teet", which had one move that was probably like class 4. The hike to the teet took us about ~4 hours with breaks, the hike up to the summit of San Joaquin took another 15 minutes.

walk-up from Mammoth Side  Sucess!

Date is something of a guess. I was working on a drill rig in the Mammoth area, and did this hike on my day off. I had seen the mountain on various hikes up the SW side of June Lake, and was almost tempted to go from the lake.

Ridge Traverse  Sucess!

Did a ridge traverse from Agnew Pass starting with Carson Peak then on to San Joaquin Mt and finally Two Teats. Great views from each peak of the Ritter Range and the Sierra Crest from Rodgers to the Koip Peak area.

Warm-up for Sierra Challenge 2005. (Happy Birthday, Mom!) Sadly, the classic Sierra Club register box exists no more. It apparently disappeared within the last 2 weeks. I shake my head in frustration as these boxes become more and more rare.

Route Climbed: The Hourglass Date Climbed: January 2004  Sucess!

Summitted in wind and cold. Rode from June Mountain and then snow shoed up. The ride down had NICE snow and was extremely memerable. Fun and convenient.

Route Climbed: North Slopes Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2004  Sucess!

Warmup for a Goddard dayhike the next day. Went up via Fern Lake, returning via Yost Lake. To my surprise, this approach actually took longer than the hike from Minaret Summit. Yost Meadow was pretty and worth seeing, but apart from that I'd recommend Minaret Summit as the way to go.
