How to get there:
One drives the narrow, winding road into Mineral King.
This is located near Sequoia National park in the
southern part of the Sierra Nevada. Route description:
There is a good trail leading up to
a small lake at the base of the mountain.
From the lake I basically followed a straight line
more or less to the summit. The last part was
characterized by big boulders. The summit itself
consists of a couple of huge rocks, but it is not
difficult to get up on the highest point (easy class 3 move). Comments:
The view to the pass in the north as well as
west and to the east is very good. The nearest higher peak is
Needham Mountain to the east. The connecting saddle is interpolated
to 3554 meter.
