Decent snowpack eliminated the talus tedium.
Dayhike from Taboose Pass trailhead; love the shortcut up the cirque. Class 1/2 ho-hum northern approach but with 25mph winds, stinging rain and graupel - this was an interesting trip.
Following the guys all damn day. Beautiful view if not for the smoke!
With Sean and Laura.
The talus is relatively stable, so not bad. Trip report
Climbed this and Goodale after Wynne the previous day, then Cardinal the following day; played leapfrog with a mother and three cubs most the way down Taboose Creek.
With Rick Kent, a long dayhike with Mt. Ruskin via the Taboose Pass Trail, part of the Sierra Challenge. Trip Report
Climbed the first afternoon as part of a 5-day trip in the area with my bother. He sat this one out but made Goodale his first summit ever the next morning. We had perfect CA weather each day, bagging Striped, Goodale, Cardinal, Wynne, Pinchot, Arrow, and Pyramid during the trip.
