Long Road  Sucess!

My eight year old son made the summit with our group. It was crowded at the summit today.

Fantastic  Sucess!

What a great peak! Easy too, the driving is the longest part.

great views of the sierras!  Sucess!

nice drive to trailhead. bristlecone pines are awesome and as old as the pyramids! (in egypt) can see many of the other fourteeners on a clear day from summit. sort of a boring hike though

The Sparks were Flying!  Sucess!

With Thunderheads popping up and down the valley we weren't sure we'd have an opportunity to summit during our mid-week hike. We watched a rain storm pass the peak in the early AM and then had clear skys so we continued to the peak. With sun on the peak we noticed the clouds getting darker on the saddle we were going to have to cross to get back. Spent a worrying last 20min. in a hail and lighnting storm. Luckily, the lightning was more than a few miles away. Still closer than I would have liked. Had a nice chat with Roger and Al at the Barcroft Station while we waited out the lightning! Nice bunch of folks! The lightning stopped us on Mt. Langley two days later! :-(

Followed the yellow brick road...  Sucess!

Aside from the miserable drive, a flat tire, and sharing the mountain with more than 20 Marines in training, the climb the next morning was quick and somewhat enjoyable. The hike back seems to take forever. Made it up in 3:30, with half of the Marines passing us on the way up. A good conditioning hike, but with that drive, I doubt I'll ever return.

Route Climbed: Barcroft gate trailhead  Sucess!

An early start means plenty of Marmot sightings on the way up. Hiked this one with my brother. Still a little snow near the summit. The Sierra still has plenty of north facing snow but the view was hazy. Might have been smoke blown up from the San Bernardino fires.

Trek from Bishop  Sucess!

My girlfriend and I left Bishop on June 9th and walked through the White Mountains, reaching the summit six days later. We had planned to continue North to Boundary Peak and Nevada, but 50 mph winds and springs covered by snowfields turned us around. Go trek through the White Mountains - Sagehen Flat, Blanco Mountain, Cottonwood Basin and Tres Plumas Flat are all beautiful, unspoiled places!

Summitted with two friends. Camped at the trailhead. Summitted on Saturday morning. Explored the bristlecone pine forest a bit in the afternoon.

Nice afternoon stroll  Sucess!

Robin and I got our usual Alpine Start™, leaving Bishop at 10 after a leisurely breakfast. There were a ton of cars in the parking area, and we saw most of those people coming down on our way up (I suspect that the majority really did get an alpine start). We summitted uneventfully, passed a few moments up there, then headed back to the car and home to Bishop for pizza and beer.

The researchers' road  Sucess!

The last bit of road before the trailhead/gate was pretty fun in my Chevy Metro. I got a late start because I underestimated the driving time from Horton Creek campground, but it isn't a long hike, so it turned out fine. On the way down, a big pick-up truck full of college boys (researchers) was heading/bouncing up the "trail."

Route Climbed: Jeep Road Date Climbed: Oct. 14, 2005  Sucess!

Spent night in truck getting acclimated (frost on inside of windshield in morning). Great trail and relatively gentile climb to top. Weather on top at 1:00 PM in mid 40s with 5-10 MPH wind and clear skies. The view from the top almost as good as the view from Mount Whitney. Hiking time 8 hours. A great peak to hike in October.

Route Climbed: easy route Date Climbed: JUL 05  Sucess!

Hiked with 8 others. Very cold morning. Reported to be 17F. Summitted in 7hrs. Descended off trail. No altitude problems this time.
Solo. First time getting sick at altitude. Had to nap halfway. Almost vomitted. Took 9.5 hours to summit and almost got caught in a violent electrical storm. Came back to a dead battery. Got help from a guy who just pulled in as I got back to the TH.

Route Climbed: east side Date Climbed: July 15, 2005

Afternoon weather cooperated and I went up-- easy way to get to top of Great Basin but welcome after Yosemite. Take care on the road. Any regular car can make it all the way, but I saw an off-road edition Toyota Tacoma with a flat while I drove by (after offering help) in a convertible Mustang. Speed can kill your tires here; not much else can.

Route Climbed: South Face Route Date Climbed: August 13,2000  Sucess!

There were several other parties hiking this route the day I was there. Great views from the summit! Best view was sunrise as I drove to the trailhead!!
