We'll attempt to climb several peaks ranging from the south to the west of Mt. Whitney on this 6 day trip. From Cottonwood Lakes trailhead, we'll go over New Army Pass and drop down to head north on the PCT or into the Sky Blue Lake basin, depending on which peaks people want to climb. The peaks are all class 1 or 2, except McAdie, which is class 3.

Start: 07/03/2008 1:00 pm

This is a technical trip requiring a high level of skill.

To avoid holiday traffic we'll leave the Bay Area on Wednesday, and hopefully celebrate July 4 on the summit of Disappointment Peak. Experience with ice ax, crampons, rope, and loose rock required for this strenuous class 4 couloir climb. We will drive home Saturday, or possibly climb Middle Palisade. Permit for 5.

This is an ambitious trip targeting two peaks in the Piute pass region over 3 days.

We will hike up to Piute pass and make camp at one of the lakes near there with a possible reconnaissance of the 3rd class route of Goethe peak in that afternoon. Saturday we will climb the previously scouted 3rd class route up Goethe and on the descent cross over on trails and cross country to do the easier 2nd class Pilot Knob returning to camp via headlamps. Participants should bring a good headlamp, GPS, and be self-sufficient for camping.

This will be a relatively slow-paced, weekend climb of Iron Mountain. Saturday we'll hike in via the Beck Lakes trail and we'll set up camp. Sunday we'll climb the peak, and hike out. We will be using ice axe and crampons so some experience with them will be necessary, but it will not be a difficult climb.

This region of the Sierra is one of my favorites because of its scenic beauty. Map is Cattle Mountain 7.5 or Topo!
