MOUNT FERNOW  9249'     P2809

MOUNT GOODE  9200+    P3800

and famous NE Buttress of Goode starting from left hand rock toe, from the NE.  John "Lizard" Lixvar finished his challenging list on Goode in 1987.  Ten years later, in 1997, Jeff Hancock finished here as well.

LINCOLN PEAK 9080+    P720

from Colfax Peak.  Not Bulger-worthy.  Note Assassin Spire' to right.  It's nbc.  Lincoln was the reason that John Lixvar declared that volcano subsummits with less than 800 feet of prominence did not qualify for his list, so he'd never have to set foot on this monster.  Later I kidded Lizard that he had invoked the "John Wilkes Booth Proviso" on Lincoln, assassinating it from his list.  This has nothing to do with Buffalo's "Honest Abes" (Bulger joke).

LINCOLN PEAK  9080+    P720

SW side, with Colfax Peak upper right.  On June 25, 1989, Reed Tindall, Silas Wild, Dick Kegel, and I came up from the lower right (1), into the "X Couloir" (2), then up the faint snow arete (3), angling to the "Leaning Tower of Pisa" (4), then to the high left notch at first sky (5) where we worked our way right to the top. We descended straight down the gully below the summit (6) to our tracks at the tower. This is one of only two aerial shots from my camera in this collection.  All the rest of my photos were taken from the ground, although telephotos sometimes give an aerial feel.

Summit party on Lincoln after 4 hours of 4 tight sphincters, June 25, 1989.

John Roper, Dick Kegel, Reed Tindall, and Silas Wild.  It was another 4 hours down.

Lincoln was my last Top 100 Peak with 500 feet of prominence, but that's another list.

 

JACK MOUNTAIN  9066'    P4186

Typical view from Highway 20 above Diablo Dam.  Dave Creeden saved Jack for his last Big Boy in 1997, as did Martin Shetter who soloed it in 2006, 18 years after climbing 35 Big Boys in 1988.
