Thanks to Douglas Deveny for adding this peak.
The Black Kaweah is one of the great peaks of the high sierra,(to quote R.J.Secor)but having had a fascination for climbing it for years i (4years to be exact)I finally summitted the Black. I completely agreed with Secor's description and having stood on top in 2000,I can fully concur w/Secor.It is a classic Sierra peak w/commitment. The easiest and shortest approach was rougly a 16 mile mostly off trail route.
NOTE: Trip reports were previously called "Summit Logs" - same feature, new name
There is one trip report for Black Kaweah.

- Log #20359 - by Morgan Brown on Sep 27, 2006Exciting climb of standard (SW Face) route. Took a rock in the head (wear a helmet!). Long, pretty approach, and a worthwhile target. The summit register dates from 1924!
