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.

Highest Peak for me so far  Sucess!

Drove from Vegas, camped at the locked gate, hiked 3 hours 45 minutes to the summit. Took a detour and did Barcroft Mountain on the way back.

cdewhurst  Sucess!

Mountained bike on the downhill and walked most of the uphill. Relatively easy hike, all trail and no obstacles. Was a little tired from Monty and Boundary the day before. Smoke from the fires limited the view a little.

East Side  Sucess!

Easy hike with beautiful and unique views of the eastern wall of the Sierra. This mountain range has a very special feel to it. A trip to the bristlecones afterward is a must!

Unexpected Joy  Sucess!

What a treat! I was only told it was a 'walk-up'. But the 14 miles round trip w/3500' was wholesome. Went the day *after* they open it to Bancroft...so I had the summit and return to myself. What a treat, what a beautiful mountain, unlike any other 14er. Bike would be the way to go.

Second time  Sucess!

Cold/windy start at the gate, but the hike up was awesome with just a long sleeve shirt, pants and hat. Very comfortable the entire time. Summit was actually still and great temperature, cool and comfortable. Views were stellar in all directions, awesome 360 degree views in all directions. Labor Day Weekend, so quite a few people, but it actually was nice and met some cool people. Summited with wife and 2 friends, all had a great time.

Re: 58th California County Highpoint

Yup- in the Tacoma. Rangers told us the open hood helped with Marmots, the day before we drove by the trailhead and it was a funny sight to see a dozen vehicles all with their hoods open. I still think it likely does nothing though. We knew the tire was going flat during the hike- I was just happy we made it to the trailhead and could deal with it afterwards.

Finally!  Sucess!

Finally made it to the summit after having to bail in a snow storm a few years back. Great views from the summit! I really like the landscape. We saw lots of marmots but no big horn sheep.

Eazy 14er  Sucess!

Bagged this one several times. Took both my sons up on different occasions to bag their first 14er. I love the White Mountains and this peak never disappoints.

Mountain Bike  Sucess!

Mountain biked from the Barcroft gate. Enjoyed a windless summit with beautiful views. The ride down took us a little over an hour. Mountain biking down was an awesome experience for a non-mountain biker, I wish I could do that on every summit.

The road  Sucess!

Acclimation hike for a trip up Whitney the next day.
Slept at Barcroft Gate. (Note to the Koreans who got up at 4:30- your tents were *not* soundproof)

Pics are here.

Road from Barcroft Gate  Sucess!

Rode mountain bike from Barcroft gate to the base of the peak then stashed it and walked the rest of the way up. It was tough riding even that easy road due to the elevation (and the fact that I'm not really a mountain biker) but it was great having the bike for the way down. Would have had great views across the valley to the Sierra but it was pretty smoky due to fires.

Great ride down!  Sucess!

Rented mountain bikes in Mammoth, camped at the trail head, rode up & flew down. Wooooo hooooo! Thanks, Phillip for being my partner in crime on this one.

Cool, easy hike. Met some other Sper's up there. Good views, a little hazy, but good nonetheless. 3rd CA 14er.
