|Peak:||Mount Le Conte|
| Elevation:||6593 ft / 2009 m|
Ascent Trip ReportStarted at about 830 am. Climbed quickly until we got to the rocky cliffs above alum cave. It was very icy. We pushed through and made it all the way up. Not exactly sure if we stood on the true summit. Could not find a marker for it and nobody that we asked seemed to be too sure either. We stayed on top for about an hour and a half. Hiked to cliff tops and a couple other random areas. had some lunch then headed down. Less ice on the way down, it was getting warmer and the ice broke more easily. Easier for shoes to grip. It was a good hike. Very interesting and got the adrenaline going on the way up.
