    Thanks, Rocky, for a Great climb! The wind rivaled that of Lassen and Shasta but I'd be happy to get schooled by University again!

    Great time, great climb! Thank you to everyone involved especially Rob and Rick for putting it all together. Loved the Eastern Sierra orientation I got on the drive in.

    Thank you Rob and Rick for organizing and leading the group. I had a lot of fun despite the crazy wind. Hope University Peak Round II is in the works! Always a great day in the mountains climbing with an amazing group! :-)

    Rob - The flu has been going around lately, my husband has been affected, and now I too appear to be coming down with it. I am not certain as of yet--but I wanted to give you a heads up in case there is a chance of letting someone else take my spot before it is too late. I am so terribly sorry to miss this climb. Thanks so much for including me!

    Hi Rob, absolutely I am still going and would like to carpool with you if possible. I am coming from Yuba City so where can I meet you?

    May 6, 2014

    • Rob R.

      Actually...I work late tonight. I'll call you tomorrow eve if that works.

      May 6, 2014

    • Scott

      That works great. Thanks Rob

    Rick and I are meeting Friday morning to carpool. Is anyone else in the Sacramento area that wants to carpool?

    Kate, Bernice, Scott - I haven't heard from any of you. Are you still joining and if so, can you let me know your travel plans. Are you interested in meeting us in Bishop for breakfast?

    • Bernice

      Hi Rob, I'm still planning to attend. I'll be coming from SoCal so I'll meet at the trail head since Bishop is more north. 10am at the trailhead, correct? Bernice

    Rob - So sorry about dropping out in the last minute. Some changes at work that I can't take Friday off easily. Hope to climb together soon. Guomin

    I was just told that I am traveling to China for work that weekend. Please make my spot available to some other mountaineer. Thanks for organizing this event in any case!

      Safe travels Diego...looking forward to seeing you on another trip.

    What's up with the time change to 4 a.m.? Yikes. For a multi-day trip?

    April 22, 2014

    • Rob R.

      I'm flexible. The plan is to meet at the Trailhead at 10am. Rick wanted to leave earlier due to travel time and breakfast.

      April 22, 2014

  • Danielle

    What time do anticipate being at the trail head on Friday?

    April 15, 2014

    • Rick B.

      I vote for leaving earlier and still get there in the morning sometime. And remember what Darren says, "No snowshoes in May!" Ha!

      April 17, 2014

    • Rob R.

      Okay Rick - you and I (and whoever else joins us for the drive) can leave at 4am? We will still meet at 10am at the trailhead.

    This is a new mountain for the club. I'm not familiar with it so am looking at the routes closely. The majority climb the popular North Face starting at Kearsarge Pass and passing Bench Lake. If we stick to the current route (Northeast Ridge), it may get tricky and our summit chances may decrease but its certain to be challenging. The North Face is rated Class 3, the Northeast Ridge Class 4. We will be bringing ropes, harnesses, an axe and an ice tool for the Ridge. Please chime in if you have any input. Depending upon conditions, the route may change upon entry.

      Richard and I did the north face route (class three) and had a ton of fun. Defiantly would do it again.

      A fun mountain!
