That's quite an adventure

and a bit disconcerting for a 'noob' alpine climber like myself to read who tends to think of guidebooks as being basically infallible-thanks for the lesson that that is far from the truth at times.

Anyway, a very enjoyable read!

Re: That's quite an adventure

Yeah, they are everywhere. Secor has some good ones (shows the incorrect line for the S Face of Charlotte Dome in my edition), and you wouldn't even want to begin attempting to follow the ridge routes as shown in Moynier & Fiddler's guidebook! Generalized lines for sure :-)

Looks like a sick range, peak, & climb! Great photos & makes me think I need to get up/over there sometime soon!

Re: Sweet!

You definitely should. Pure Type I fun alpine cragging. A beautiful place to go for very casual and scenic alpine climbing. After all of the dry high altitude desert camping in the Sierra, it was so nice to hang out in such amazing alpine meadows.

NE Face of Warrior II with a traverse to the main summit is still on my to-do list, as well as some lesser interest in other climbs, so I see myself going back again someday.

Very well done!

Re: Outstanding!

Thanks! Maybe I'll put up a TR of some of the more popular routes that people might actually want to do, but this one seemed like a good, off-the-beaten-track sort of story :-)

Love the Mitchell image

Great photo of Mitchell Pk. I was able to hike the easy route to top back in 1994. I have a question about photo to left of Mitchell. Where is Steeple Pk. I thought the mountains in the photo were , (from R. to L) Temple, E. Temple and Temple spire. Please clarify. What a wonderful trip and report .

Re: Love the Mitchell image

According to my guidebook, Steeple Peak is the extremely triangular peak in the left-most part of the picture. Lost Temple Spire is marked as a much smaller bump between Steeple and East Temple Peak. I'm glad you liked the report!

Thanks for your reply

You are probably correct. We camped at Big Sandy Lake. God, what a beautiful place.
