White Mountain Peak

White Mountain Peak, at 14,252-foot, is the highest peak in the White Mountains of California, the highest peak in Mono County, the third highest peak in the state after Mount Whitney and Mount Williamson. It is the fourteenth most topographically prominent peak in the contiguous United States. White Mountain Peak is one of only two fourteeners in California that are not in the Sierra Nevada, the other being Mount Shasta at the far northern end of the state in the Cascade Range, it is the only fourteener in the contiguous United States, not in the Rocky Mountains, the Cascade Range, or the Sierra Nevada. The University of California operates the White Mountain Research Center, comprising three high altitude research stations, on the mountain: Crooked Creek Station at 10,200 feet, Barcroft Station at 12,470 feet, a small hut at the summit; the effects of altitude on physiology are studied at summit hut. There is a winding dirt road leading to the summit station, cleared of snow between late June and November.

Access is restricted to hikers only by a locked gate about 2 miles before Barcroft station, but White Mountain Research Station opens this locked gate at 11,680 feet once each year. Open gate days are on a Sunday in the summer; the round-trip hike from the gate to the summit is about 14 miles with less than 2,600 feet of vertical gain. However, there are two different dips in the trail of about 250 feet each, adding up to a total elevation gain during the roundtrip of over 3500 feet; the open gate shaves 790 feet of gain off the round trip. This route is popular with mountain bikers. While the peak is arguably California's easiest fourteener via the jeep road, it features more strenuous climbs such as its western ridge, an 8,150-foot climb out of Owens Valley via a steep ridge from the end of a rough road; the peak is approached from the north where it is guarded by a narrow arête or knife-edge ridge. A better nontechnical alternative to the jeep road would be to drive as far as possible up Leidy Canyon from Fish Lake Valley take a graded cattle trail up the broad ridge to Perry Aiken Flat.

From the flats it is an easy traverse south into the cirque of the North Fork, North Branch of Perry Aiken Creek. A moderate scramble up the ridge between the North Branch and the larger cirque of the main North Fork leads to the easier upper slopes of the peak. While the peak does not require technical climbing skills, it still poses a serious challenge to hikers because of the high altitude; the summit and the weather station at 12,470 feet has an alpine tundra climate. Winters are severe, with the peak receiving upwards of 13 feet of snow annually.
