3 groups climbed over 2 days, with all thirteen people reaching the summit of Middle Palisade, one of California's 14ers and a classic class 3 Sierra route! Except for swarming mosquitos, conditions were mild and summery.


Trip Report

Group 1

(PT, Joel, Martin, Madeline, Lauren )

Group 2

Group 2, 8 strong and led by Patrick, Dan, and Danielle, set off from Finger Lake at around 5:45 on Friday morning. We traversed a couple of hundred feet above the lake and cramponed up to climb snow most of the way to the bottom of the route. As planned, we naturally separated into two groups. The first group climbed the chute as the second waited to regroup at the base of the climb, thus reducing rockfall danger a bit.

Group 2a

Group 2a (Dan, Danielle, Melanie, Peter)

Group 2b

Group 2b (Patrick, Alex, Joe, Liz) left the base of the climb at around 10:30 and summited at 12:20.
