Unnamed 13460

Route: From Middle Mountain A
Posted On: 2020-10-13, By: supranihilest
Info: The ridge from Middle Mountain A to Point 13,460 A does not go - you can take it down a ways but eventually you'll be blocked by massive vertical walls and towers. We didn't stay on the ridge, instead dropping southwest down steep and loose slopes and eventually into a steep and very loose gully which dumped onto a high, flat shelf below all of the vertical cliffs on the ridge. Contouring around the cliffs to the west Whiley went farther south and up grassier slopes to 13,460 A's rocky upper slopes; I opted to just go direct, which consisted of a talus field, some grass, and then a Class 2 talus gully that opened to the upper slopes. From the upper slopes the summit is a Class 2 hike. The GPS coordinates and marker listed on the site (as well as Google's marker) are incorrect; if you go to that point the true summit will be just to the south and is obviously higher.

Route: From Sayres Benchmark
Posted On: 2020-05-22, By: supranihilest
Info: There's some snow directly off the summit of Sayres but once past the smaller secondary summit of Sayres you can stick to dry ground all the way to 13,460. The first 2/3 or so are loose scree and talus (especially the red rock near all the roads) and then there's a kind of catwalk section with good, solid rock. It's slightly exposed but goes at Class 2+ and is pretty fun. I did not descend the roads, instead going to 13,300 F, but the roads looked pretty snowy still.
