"Saturday. My "just got laid-off" mountain climbing tour continues in the Sawtooth Ridge area of the Eastern Sierra. Specifically, I set my sights on Matterhorn Peak, being an SPS Emblem Peak and generally just looking awesome. I got an early start at Twin Lakes, The original plan was to climb the East Couloir from the Matterhorn Glacier, but like a noob I absent-mindedly ascended not one but TWO drainages to the east towards Twin Peaks. While the scenery was stunning, it wasn't going to get me to the summit, so I sat down on a moraine with a good view of the surroundings and studied the map an" - klotito, May 26, 2018
"A long hike, made longer by the morning meander through the campground looking for the unmarked trailhead. Mostly reasonable trail/goattrack to Horse Creek Pass (aim high), then that looong slog up the sandy slope. 2 hours up, 5 minutes down on that stuff. Wheee! Loved the views from the summit- I remember doing a backpacking loop in N Yose several years ago and picking out the summit and deciding I'd climb it someday - and this was before my peak bagging days." - calipidder, Aug 19, 2014
"Firm new snow on top of late season neve, class 3 climb up the East Couloir without a rope was a bit icy and spooky. Too icy too descend the couloir, down climbed to Horse Creek Pass. Finished the trail in the dark. Super Fun day!" - tcitret, Oct 15, 2011
