We will be going over Bishop Pass and going up from the west side. There are 4 other 14,000ft. peaks in the area If interested in some of the other peaks let me know. Helmets would be required on the Thunderbolt and Starlite, climbing shoes recommended.. I have a permit for 7, but walk up the day before may allow us to get more.

Start: 08/28/2009 10:00 am

Friday we’ll hike up to Chocolate Lake where we’ll set up camp and then climb Cloudripper. Saturday we’ll hike over to Bishop Lake where we’ll set up another camp and then climb Mt. Goode. Then on Sunday we’ll hike back out.

This will be a relatively slow-paced trip and the climbing will for the most part be easy (although it will be class 3 on Cloudripper), so it should be appropriate for relative beginners who have done a bit of climbing.

To avoid holiday traffic we will leave the Bay Area on Thursday.
After a long, strenuous backpack to camp we will have 2 fairly difficult climbs each day, with short belayed climbing on Clarence King and possibly on Gardiner. If interested please be in very good shape with confidence on class 3 & 4 and with some roped climbing experience.

We'll use the holiday weekend to do a relatively relaxed 3-day climb of Tower Peak, which the guide books seem to consider is the northern boundary of the "High Sierra."

Leaving from Leavitt Meadows on Hwy 108, the approach is somewhat over 10 miles, mostly on trail, with minimal elevation gain. We'll climb the peak on day 2, and retrace our steps on day 3. The class 3 section is only near the end. Most of the peak is class 2.
