ElGrecoEast Turret  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 17, 2011


Icy snowshoe up the West ridge. Very enjoyable scramble/climb up the east turret (the true summit). Rock is solid, but some chunks did come off from the party above us. Wear a helmet or climb one at a time. Beautiful views of other Tahoe peaks, Lassen and Diablo.

Nice way to end the hike. The class 4 side of the turret is lots of fun, but watch out for loose holds! Went on to Basin Peak and Andesite Mountain on the way down.

wyopeakMikeparty peak  Sucess!


I hiked and scrambled up to the summit a few times in the 90's with some friends. One time we brought a boom box and we ate some strange fungi(back in the party days). That was some wild memories of hanging out on the summit turret.

Darren9high point of the pass  Sucess!


The first time I climbed this peak it was in winter, and I was pleased to see it was so close and lots of options for daytrips of all sorts. A great training peak.

Left the skis at the bottom and booted up the chute.
Good day - but too warm. The snow already turned to soup by 12:30.

Date Climbed: Feb 18, 2006


Reached the summit three times, twice during summer and once at winter in my snowshoes (absolutely love the scrambling towards the end). Can't wait to take our 1 1/2 year old son there again!

Date Climbed: Jan 18, 2009


Do I still get credit for a winter ascent if it was 40 degrees on the summit? Entertaining scramble while my partner watched from below. Despite the warm weather it was a fun couple of days of snowshoeing.
