Evan Firstman loving the airy summit ridge of Mt. Emerson's Southeast Face.
Mt. Emerson (13,204 ft.)
Southeast Face III, 5.4 Mt. Emerson was named by John Muir in the late 1800’s to honor Ralph Waldo Emerson. The stark contrast of Emerson’s white granite with the surrounding red of the Piute Crags will have you philosophizing on why you haven’t been here before. This is one of the rare, accessible alpine day climbs of the Eastern Sierra, quickly becoming a local Bishop area classic. Nearly 3,000 feet of excellent granite cracks, faces, and exposed ridges. This classic-style alpine rock climb has it all!
