Ascent Trip Report

As per Jerry Keating's report in "The Sierra Echo," Winter 2006: After a second night of enjoyable campfire activities beside
Tuttle Creek, eight persons drove down to Lone Pine and then
northward on U.S. 395 for about 5 miles to the Moffat Ranch
Road. It and other unpaved roads led to the starting point on Movie Rd (unsigned and not necessarily obvious among the various bumps without a map) for the high point (5354’) of the Alabama Hills. The route wound through various gullies and up Class 1 terrain. From the summit,the views of the peaks along the Sierra crest were spectacular.
The register revealed many familiar names, including those of
Steve Roper, Jim Nichols, Mark Adrian and Bob Sumner
