From Laurel Canyon up the NE ridge. Almost ran out of gas driving up Laurel Canyon road. Didn't anticipate my mad 4x4 road driving skillz were in need of massive honing. Sweet views for not much effort (hiking, that is).

Climbed Cathedral Peak in Tuolumne Meadows in the morning, then hiked Bloody Mountain as a side trip on the drive home. The hiking on the NE ridge is nothing to write home about, but the views off of each side of the ridge are spectacular and we all really enjoyed this peak.

There was a SAR in progress on Laurel Mountain and we talked to a few of the SAR members who were searching Laurel's SW side. On our drive out, we saw the same SAR members who told us two climbers got cliffed out and spent Saturday night on Laurel, but were hoisted out by helicopter on Sunday afternoon. We heard the chopper, but couldn't see any of the action from Bloody's NE ridge.

Climbed this route later in the year with a team of six from SMG. From base camp (Laurel lakes), it took us about 3 hrs to summit and 2 hrs to descend the NW ridge. At the time the couloir was still in good shape and made for a good steep climb. Overall, this was a great trip. The road leading into Laurel canyon IS as rough as everyone says. You most definitely need a reliable 4WD vehicle with a good amount of ground clearance and good tires to tackle this beast. We used a 2001 Durango and a later model Ford F350 Super Duty to get in and out.

Drove almost to the switchbacks. Climbed the looker's left side of the couloir behind a party of five who camped at Laurel Lakes the night before. Skied the looker's right side of the rock islands on soft snow. Great summit views.

Climbed the right fork of Bloody Couloir. Steep but soft snow made the climb easy going. Fun route!

Drove to 9,400' and then dayhiked the ridge from the Laurel/Bloody saddle. Some snow, but not too bad. Great views.

Took the very scenic drive up the 4x4 road following Laurel Creek. Got a flat on the rocks turning around at the trailhead. Went ahead for the easy dayhike, fixed the flat at the end.

It took forever to post hole my way up the couloir but my effort was rewarded in possibly one of the finest ski descents in history. Definitely a classic and made better by 6 inches of still soft powder.

Fun climb and first solo. Was originally going to head up Laurel but misread the map and ended up on Bloody. Whoops. Oh well, I wanted to climb Bloody anyways.

NE Ridge is never ending. Or so it seemed. Perfect day. Had the place to myself.
