Traversed to Virginia from Twin Peaks along the South Ridge. We descended the East Face to make a direct route back to Virginia Pass. Looking up from the bottom makes the East Face look much more difficult, but the climbing was fun.
The second stop of a Stanton-Virginia dayhike. I disagree with the entry below: This is a miserable peak. Crappy rock everywhere.
I don't recommend the traverse from Stanton Peak unless you really like loose class 3. I ended up bailing somewhere along the ridge and climbing the east face--also loose class 3. I won't be visiting this peak again soon.
Day 1 of the 2003 Sierra Challenge. 4hr15m from Green Creek TH. Then on to Twin Peaks. Great fun.
