Ascent Trip Report

Rick Chval, Al Craun, Matt Taylor, and I day hiked Mount Morrison from Convict Lake via the peak's class 2 East Slope Route. From the parking lot, our group hiked south up the drainage to a hanging valley, running into snow at about 9800' in elevation. We continued up the hanging valley, turning west at about 9950' in elevation, put on crampons and got the ice axes out, then made our way up another valley and then a chute up to the summit.
