I've hiked up Grouse Mountain, Buttermilk Hill, Tungsten Point and some unnamed hills. I also ran the Bishop 50K through this area several times.
Hiked the trail near Millpond to the summit marker - I don't really know or care if it was the true highpoint. Great place to wander with a little spare time near Bishop!
So many piles, so close to home! Enjoyed a boot glissade down a snowy chute too.
A lot of fun boulder hopping and climbing peaks. Discovered relics from the past.
Been up numerous times
This 8,083' class 2 scramble is the Tungsten high point with great views. Also in '05
I love the hills. They make me want to wave my arms in the air and sing like Julie Andrews in "The Sound of Music." This winter and spring Jon and I have ran around all over them, going to high points and peering down mine shafts.
Beautiful day. The weather was perfect and there wasn't a soul around.
