Objectives are to climb the NW Couloir of Mount LeConte under spring alpine conditions, encountering the "waterfall" pitch near the top, summit LeConte and traverse over to Mount Corcoran on its west side. We'll hike up to the Meysan Lakes to camp on the first day, climb the peaks the second, and hike out the third. Depending on conditions, a rope may be used. Because of the early season conditions, participants must be comfortable on steep mixed terrain without a rope. The July trip to the same area led by Aaron Schuman may be a more appropriate trip for many people.

We’ll start low at the end of the Oak Creek Road (6000) and hike the Baxter Pass trail from desert up into spring slush. The snow will be firmed up by the time we reach our camp at Summit Meadow (10800). We’ll ascend the southeast face of Diamond Peak (13127), which RJ Secor calls “a splendid snow climb in the spring”. Participants are skilled with ice axe for self-arrest and use of crampons on a mid-angle slope. Some members of the party will choose skis; others snowshoes.
