White Mountain Peak Videos — Summit Success and More

This video story was August 16, 2012 during a successful summitting of White Mountain Peak from the Owens River in the valley floor. Hail moved in just as soon as the summit was reached, the videos document the descent from the summit and beyond, back to “home”.

See the Trek to the Summit of White Mountain Peak ride details.

Video details

These videos were all taken while cycling with the Olympus E-M5 strapped against my midsection with the Panasonic 8mm f/3.5 fisheye, so there is a lot of bouncing around. But this is precisely one reason to favor the E-M5; its powerful image stabilization actually makes the video watchable, though the bouncing can be extreme in some parts of the video.

Click each image to view the video. All videos are aup to 1080p.

Aug 16, 2012 in White Mountains — “14,252' White Mountain Peak, Lightning Bolts, Get the Hell Down”

At the summit of White Mountain Peak.

Contains mild profanity (altitude induced? something about being on a summit and having a thunderous boom encourages such things perhaps). Prep for the descent.

Aug 16, 2012 in White Mountains — “Descent from 14,252' White Mountain Peak”

Contains mild profanity— enjoy the spirit of the summer hailstorm. The first minute or so is slow as I put on my gloves, can be skipped.

Aug 16, 2012 in White Mountains — “From Meadow Above White Mountain Research Station ('Barcroft') Down to Locked Gate”

Nicely clean lens for the first half of this video, then it gets sloppy.

Starts out above the White Mountain Research Station (Barcroft), descends past it, views the sheep, descends to the locked gate.

Initial ascent with rolling commentary on the area, then descends, view the sheep at WMRS, then rocks down fast to the gate at ~35 mph.

Aug 16, 2012 in White Mountains — “From Near Locked 'Barcroft' Gate Across Rolling Open High Mountain Area”

Rain chasing me. Just descended past Barcroft (White Mountain Peak Research Station).

Starts out slow to put gloves on, etc, then rolls on at about the 1:40 mark. Rolling commentary the first half.

Aug 16, 2012 in White Mountains — “Descent of Silver Canyon near Bishop, CA”

Silver Canyon is the most difficult mountain bike climb I have ever ridden, at least ascending it— few riders are even capable of the ascent; I can ride 98% of it, with 2% walk-a-bike. Grades hit nearly 30% in places, with an average grade of 17% for the upper three miles over 3000' of elevation (6500' total climbing from the Owens River to the top of the canyon). See the route description in Trek to the Summit of White Mountain Peak.
