Ascent Trip Report

At 7.3 miles on Rte 270 east of U.S. 395, turn south over broad, sage-covered highland to ascend gradually in 1.6 miles to a saddle on the west flank of Mt. Biedeman. Parking here, it took me 30 minutes to reach the summit, which is distinguished by the presence of three carefully constructed 6'- stone cairns and by sweeping views of Mono Lake, the Sierra crest, and the Bodie Hills to the north. Familiar names in the register included Bill Hauser, Richard arey, Gail Hanna, Gordon MacLeod, Barbara Lilley, Andy Smatko, Bill Schuler. Mt. Biedeman is named after an owner of the Homestake Mining Company that built a mill in the Bodie Mining Diistrict in the 1860s.
