Topo and GPS tracks from Barcroft Gate to the White Mountain Summit.

14 miles and 3100ft of gain, all above 12k and all above the treeline today.
I had failed to reach White due to acclimation/weather on my one prior late fall attempt in 2005.

This was primarily an acclimation hike for tomorrows visit to Whitney.  I drove up at sunset and spent the night at the Barcroft  Gate trailhead where there was actually a bit of a crowd.

The folks next to me seemed unaware that their tents were not soundproof and were up at ~5 speaking very loudly in Korean.  

After they departed, I went back to sleep and got a relatively late 8:15 start.

The gate to Barcroft is only open to the public a few days a year, and this wasn't one of 'em.  2 miles to the research lab and then 5 more to the summit.

Approaching the Barcroft Station.  There were a couple of researchers out on the road, one carrying some sort of measuring instrument.

The researchers now appear to be raising sheep.   Not sure if this is a scientific study or if it just gets really lonely up here at 12k.

The road turned to crest the ridge past the research station proper.  I think thats a telescope at the top of the ridge.

First look at White Mountain itself from atop the ridge.  On the outbound trip I bypassed the road and headed straight north across the bowl.
