Mount Hinman and La Bohn Peak

Due to the forecasted record breaking heat wave in the area, my original overnight climbing trip got canceled. With the gears packed, I was seeking an overnight solo alternative that would still be manageable in the heat. Mount Hinman came to my mind. I have never been up there. I would like to see the Hinman Glacier before it retreats even more. Hinman Glacier https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hinman_Glacier Climbing into https://www.summitpost.org/mount-hinman/508469 A little intel on the route conditions: ====================== Water: There were plenty of good water sources to filter until you get to the toe of the snowfield below La Bohn Gap. From there on, the only reliable source is by melting snow. Bugs There were swarms of mosquitoes, flies and bees in the swampy area below the snowfield. Bring your bug protection. La Bohn Gap The snowfield goes up ~1,000ft in 0.6mi to the Gap. The snow was firm but not icy. Ice axe and boots were essential and crampons optional. La Bohn Peak From Gap to the summit was mostly class 2 rock scramble. You climb up 700ft in 0.4 mi. Mount Hinman The climb from Gap to summit is about 2mi with 1,800ft gain. The route was mostly on snow. The condition was good: firm, not slushy or icy. ============================= I started at 7 am. The plan was to reach the La Bohn Peak first as a side trip and then camp at the La Bohn Gap . The idea was to camp high on snow to avoid bugs and mosquitoes and to give myself a chance to summit Hinman in early morning to avoid being baked on the glacier.
