Had to bail!

I tried it a couple of years ago with my buddy Richard in October and we had to bail because of a pretty bad snow storm. We were already pretty high up (just before the final ascent to the summit) when we saw the storm coming in and decided to bail. It started to snow by the time we were at the research station and be the time we reached the car it was snowing really bad (a couple of inches in 15min). Temperatures had dropped into the 10's, really cold and windy. But it was still a lot of fun and will return one day to summit.

One Long Walk  Sucess!

Hiked up from the Barcroft gate. Nice breeze, so not too hot. Pretty desolate, though great views of the Sierras throughout the hike. My friend and I had the summit to ourselves (it was a Thursday). Saw three others on their way up as we headed down.

Summer Solitude  Sucess!

Solo climbed from the Barcroft gate on the dirt road. Very sunny comfortable morning climb with great views north to Mt. Dana and south along the High Sierra. Took about 6 hours round trip.

Main Trail  Sucess!

A family affair. We took advantage of the open gates on the last day of a two week vacation. My second time up, my wifes first time (her second 14'er). My daughter (age 5) hiked to the summit on her own for her first 14'er, and my son (age 2) got a ride all the way on my back for his first ever peak.

Good Conditioner...  Sucess!

We used this peak as a conditioner for our Whitney climb. Camped at the gate the night before which helped. Car to car in just under 7-hours. HOT! Went through 3.5-liters of water.

My son's first 14er  Sucess!

My 9yo son and I hiked from Barcroft Gate. I was very proud of him. By far, this was his longest and highest hike yet. He was so tired when we summitted. But after a nap and some food, he was back to his old playful self as we headed back down the trail. We did his science project for the upcoming year along the way (testing the boiling temperature of water at various elevations). Great, great day and great weekend camping and hiking with him.

walk from the south slope  Sucess!

Tried to spend a night up there but altitude sickness made us pack our tent before it got dark. Nice walk down under the moonlight...

Standard Route  Sucess!

Overnight at the Gate. Cold night and an early start. We arrived on the summit at 11:05AM and a helicopter came and picked up one of the researchers at the summit lab. Pretty cool!
