First peak in the Sierra Nevadas  Sucess!

Great day with my peak baggin brother wood. Highest mountain I've peak to date. Also my first mountain in California and the Sierra Nevada's great early spring scramble. Wood had bad altitude sickness on the way down. Preparing to Summit Whitney via the mountaineers route this week.

Stemwinder in winter  Sucess!

Great climb and a good winter option. South facing and gets lots of sun. The climb was mostly snow free. Snow on the last section of exposed 4th class made it more challenging.

Southeast Couloir  Sucess!

Beautiful day with only patches of snow on the slope above the couloir. Also climbed the two pinnacles immediately south of the summit.

Stem Wander  Sucess!

Interesting alpine climb; not so classic but I did enjoy it. Too bad we felt we needed a rope a couple of times, would love to solo it.

Stemwinder with Pops  Sucess!

Took my Dad up this route for his 1st alpine climb, 1st multi-pitch (kinda), 1st trip into whitney portal, 1st trip above 12K...it was alot of 1st's for him. He had a blast. Good route, fun and mostly 3rd class. The so-called exposed slab move is basic...people blow that up more than it is...my 0.02

Sierra Vista  Sucess!

I have climbed it thirteen times, ascending and descending various routes. My favorite route was via Pinnacle Ridge, after climbing nearby Wotans Throne. Thor Peak offers spectacular views of surrounding higher peaks (Whitney, Muir, McAdie, Irvine, Russell, Carillon, etc.).

From LBSL  Sucess!

A little sandy on the way up (which made for a quick descent) so tried to stay on the more solid Class 3 rocks where possible. Amazing views of the Whitney Group from the top.

Stemwinder  Sucess!

Awesome route up the south face. The two crux spots are more mental than anything otherwise this is just an exposed class 3 scramble with spectacular views. As Miguel said, wasted time on the approach with unreachable or cliffed out ledges. Descended via the east gully with the big "chockstone" (the only gully I was trying to miss). Pictures
