Unique among CA 14ers  Sucess!

After acclimatizing on Whitney, we proceeded to run up, and then run down White Mountain. Snow on the top 1000ft. Very cool mountain!

Didn't expect to love it  Sucess!

I did not expect to love this outing, given the simple approach and hoards of people. But, the alpine desert landscape with its countless shades of aridity was charming and a great easy high altitude day.

high-alttitude walk  Sucess!

Biggest challenge was avoiding the thunderstorms.

On the 2nd try!  Sucess!

This one considered to be the easiest one... I made attempt in April and had to turn back after 10 miles of 25 miles trek from the closed gate, as night temps drop down to 5F. Spent the night in August on the plateau between Barcroft and White. Temps dropped down to 20's. It is always windy here so go well prepared; there is no natural protection above the tree line. Stake your tent and use guy lines.

Tick  Sucess!

Ticked it off after getting stormed off the Sierras the day before. Lots of hail, but refused to make that drive again.

Beautiful  Sucess!

Did this as a recovery hike after Palisades Traverse attempt the day before. Lots of people, but beautiful open slopes with good views.

From Barcroft Gate  Sucess!

Camped out by the gate. Lot of researchers around around. Wasn't terribly enjoyable with all the motorbike and SUVs going back and forth. Took longer than anticipated. We left around 7 in the morning and got back around 3:15 in the afternoon.

Barcroft Gate  Sucess!

Hiked up with AJ. Longer hike than expected. We slept at the gate, woke up and headed out at 7am, made it back by ~3pm. Researchers were on the peak - did not enjoy the SUVs & motorbikes on trail.

Mtn Bike Descent  Sucess!

A stark and brutal hike in a lunar landscape. I highly recommend dragging a mtn bike with you to increase the excitement on the otherwise slog of a descent. Kinda underestimated this one. Though technically very easy, it still requires good conditioning, those last switchbacks above 13k were um....tougher than I thought they'd be. Killer views of course.

interesting day  Sucess!

Made the summit - nice hike but weather wasn't cooperating - started sunny, clouds rolled in, at summit had tiny amount of snowflakes. On hike back clouds gathered and wind picked up eventually it started hailing with thunder threatening (but not a big problem) and very windy with 50 degree temperature. Quite an adventure.

Take Two  Sucess!

Had a great hike and a great day with my father in law. We should all be in such good shape as we get older. Slept in the truck at the gates of the NASA base and hiked up the next day. Summitted with no problems what so ever. Had tried to solo earlier in the year, but due to snow and road conditions had to start much further away and ran out of steam.

Great view. Boring trail.

Eye opening  Sucess!

My first 14er, back in 2002. Before I was in good hiking shape, so my memory is that is was more difficult than any other 14er I've done. I'd like to go back and do it again now that I know what the hell I'm doing out there. I remember watching marmots dropping out from cars at the trailhead and being grateful for the chickenwire fence we'd brought along.

Barcroft gate route access

A friend and I left LA to head to White Mtn for a climb and we stopped in Lone Pine to check on conditions and supplies...needless to say the road to White Mtn from the California side is now closed and not supposed to be open until June 10 (Barcroft gate route).

Up from Barcroft gate  Sucess!

The top of the White Mountains is fantastic. And that view of the Sierra Range ;-O

Starlight Hike  Sucess!

Left the TH at 0200, hit the summit for sunrise, cooked a mahvelous b-fast of sausage, pancakes, coffee, and champagne. A most memorable way to do an easy peak.
