Up the ridge in warm sunny weather
Beautiful winter day with Krista.
We hiked over Towne BM on the way to Panamint Butte. Other peaks on our 4 day trip included the Surprise Canyon Wilderness Highpoint, Tucki Mtn., Canyon Point, Panamint Butte, Pinto Peak, Nelson Range HP, and Malpais Mesa HP.
Up to the ridge from Towne Pass, we passed over Towne BM on the way to Panamint Butte.
Fairly straightforward. We spotted the crashed plane on the south slopes. Other things we did on this trip include Ord, Eureka Dunes HP, Sandy Point, Last Chance, Chocolate, Tucki, and Ibex Dunes HP.
Solo climb from Towne Pass. I heard about the Albatross wreck, so I had to check it out. It is a strange sensation to be able to see my car for so long while on the mountain, but it gave me incentive to return quickly (seeing as it was very cold out and I had a bottle of Bailey's waiting in it)!
One of several peaks hiked on a trip to DV. Heavy threatening skies. Panamint Range socked in.
Hiked up from Towne Pass and went down Panamint Canyon with Rick Kent.
Dayhiker's first summit entry really cracked me up. Great views and free condoms up there.
2008 October 19: Solo hike to the summit and back.
2008 October 26: With Rick Kent and Seahorse. After the peak, we descended Panamint Canyon to Lake Hill Road on the floor of Panamint Valley.
On the way to Panamint Butte.
Hard to miss this one on the way to Panamint Butte. It has better views, too. And don't miss a visit to the plane wreck SW of the peak. Trip Report
Climbed the peak a couple months ago with Rick Kent and Matthew Holliman. For the descent, we opted for the easy technical North Fork of Dolomite Canyon.
Beautiful day with some hiking in the snow.
