Took about one hour from Minaret Lake to get to the summit. Route was steep and the rock was often loose or unstable, but nothing too crazy.
Cool summit to explore but I never found any spot that gives an unobstructed view to the west.
GPS stats starting from Devils Postpile:
17.2 mi / 4,754' / ~7hrs
Tried to get up here for sunrise from Minaret Lake, but the sun beat me by about 15 minutes. Still a fantastic morning view and a great way to start the day.
Day 2 of the 2012 Sierra Challenge. Four of us were supposed to climb Clyde Minaret but with ominous storm clouds forming, we chose to play it safe. Didn't rain on us until much later in the afternoon but the views from Volcanic Ridge were still great.
Did this guy and Red Top with some good company
A nice, relaxing day with PeakFreak, Nick, and Becca for Day 3 of the SC.
Day 4 of Sierra Challenge 2010. Hiked and climbed with Ron Hudson and Faith. Cool views of Minarets, Ritter, and Banner.
Started from Agnew Meadows, linked up with Red Top Mtn, then dropped down to Devils Postpile and shuttle back to car for a cool loop.
Great view of Minarets.
Climbed from Ediza with 5 others. The summit provided amazing views of the Minarets. Found a cool snow tunnel on the way up.
This was a very nice scramble on good rock. Great loop with a descent to Minaret Lakes and back to Lake Ediza.
Ok, I'll be the first to sign this log. I forget the exact date my dad and I scrambled to the top of this thing. He was in fantastic shape, but said if it was much longer he was going to quit.
