The true summit from the East Summit. The keyhole is the horizontal slab in the middle of the picture. It wasn't hard to get to the keyhole from the summit I was on, but to get to the top of the summit block was a pretty hairy high 5th class climb. August, 2005

Is that vegetation I see in this photo at 13,500 ft. +/-? How can this be? No plant life could survive at this elevation. Could someone please explain....?

Re: vegetation

yup. it sure is! this is around 12,000 ft. the sierra has some beautiful surprises, sometimes! polemonium, in particular, thrives all the way up to 14,000 ft.
