I first climbed Mt. Agassiz (13,899 elevation) with a Sierra Club outing in 1974.
It took hardly any effort to convince Joe Mundy that we should plan a joint expedition to the top later that year. As we donned our backpacks and started hiking towards Bishop Pass the looming bulk of Mt. Agassiz gradually came into view; we established a base camp just below the final switchbacks heading up to the pass.
