There was a register in what I would best describe as a drug container with a single entry from 1 November this fall by Andy Smatko, now 81, and several friends. It was very cold, so we just signed and left. One hundred feet below the top, Joe noticed that Toby had picked up a souvenir; he had the register in his mouth. They went back up and reset it. Crater Mtn is a worthy peak with a nice view of Big Pine and possibly the Sierra ( we couldn't tell because of the clouds ) and deserves a real register.
This could be a preliminary entry on the WIMP ( Winter, Inyo, Mono, Peaks ) list.
Round trip stats: 3.5 miles, 500 feet, 1 hr 45 minutes. Later in the afternoon Lori and I went running; it read 24 degrees on the bank sign. We had a few flurries.
