The best views of more peaks than from just about anywhere else in the Sierra. Long Pine Peak affords vistas that range from Mount Langley to Mount Russell and beyond. Lone Pine Peak is the formidable mountain that dominates the skyline from Lone Pine, and from Owens Valley in general. It is often assumed to be Mount Whitney. On its facets are several varied and challenging technical routes. The route described here is the easiest and shortest. What it lacks in aesthetics of ascent (much of the climb is a gravelly slog) it more than makes up for with the views from the summit.
