An easy sandy walk up from the lake after going up Russell and Carillon. Super cool spot.
From Morgensen and then to Cleaver.
A tedious slog even though I came over Cleaver col which was pretty nice especially compared to the Russell-Carrilon pass. The views did redeem the peak.
at 13,100 ft., then went to top.
Climbed via the Cleaver. The register seemed okay. Photos.
The summit register is in bad shape. It's one of those metal cylinders about 4" in diameter. The lid was missing, and although someone had put the books inside the ziplock of a wag bag, they were both very wet. Both books are also full. We took the books out of the wag bag and left them underneath the inverted can, in hopes that the pages would drain and dry out.
Day hike from Cleaver Col
Climbed Carillon, fished Tulainyo (don't bother), great day, back to lone Pine for pizza that night.
Great views, and fun day. E. Ridge of Carl Heller looks beautiful from the summit!
during Sierra Challenge. This guy was #16, after mt. Morgensen and went on to climb #17 Cleaver Pk after
Climbed the south slope from Cleaver Col.
Tagged this on the 2010 Sierra Challenge after doing Morgensen and on my way to Cleaver Pk.
Camped at Tulainyo Lake afterwards. Nice day from the Portal.
Going past Tulainyo lake on the way to Tunaborra was awesome. The water is unnaturally blue. Its worth doing if you've got time and in the area.
8:30 roundtrip from Whitney Portal.
Climbed from the Cleaver with Miguel Forjan (below) on Day 9 of the Sierra Challenge. Trip Report
Day 9 of the 2006 Sierra Challenge. Climbed with Bob Burd. Tagged The Cleaver first from the west face, then descended the Cleaver's NW ridge for a quick dip at Tulainyo Lake before ascending the south slope of Tunnabora. About 4.5 hours from Whitney Portal. Ran into Charles at Tunnabora's summit.
Had hoped to climb the East Ridge of Carl Heller, but found too much snow. Climbed Tunnabora, Russell, and Carillon instead with Rick Kent. Trip Report
Climbed as part of a multi-peak hike from USBL via Rockwell Variation. Tulainyo bowl and lake still locked in winter -- amazing scenary.
Climbed as a dayhike via Cleaver Col. Also climbed the Cleaver, Carillon and Russell.
