Mt. Barnard was at one time believed to be over 14,000 feet. Now it is the highest 13,000-foot peak in the range, and as Steve Roper noted in his 1976 guidebook, “A lot of peakbaggers were unhappy when the Geological Survey announced the new elevation.” The remote cirques surrounding the abandoned trail over Vacation Pass offer a number of impressive walls and towers. However, the arduous approach and necessary bighorn sheep restrictions have diminished their popularity in recent years. Bishop climbers Bob Harrington and James Wilson both recommended this route, noting that it was quite popular at one time. As with other climbs, Harrington was inspired by Rowell’s vision and returned to the pillar with Allan Bard to climb a new route to the right. He said, “Our route is good, but Rowell’s route is really cool in that it follows a single crack that steepens as it goes, until you reach the crux right below the summit.”
