fatdadSE Buttress and Mountaineer's Route  Sucess!


Beautiful peak that I got to climb before the crowds.

Contemplated the SE buttress, but wasn't quite feeling it so just took the descent trail up, didn't realize it goes within one or two hundred feet of the summit. The 15 foot summit crack was cool, but other than that this was 98% hiking and 2% climbing. Kinda wish I'd at least tried the butt, guess I'll have to wait until next year with Tioga Pass likely closed for the winter.

A small party, we took the 4th class route up. We had to wait in the cold wind for nearly an hour for a window of time to open for us to summit, since party after party were coming up the class 5 sections. A hugely popular peak.

Great weather. lots of people. very airy summit. ropes would have probably been useful for the last 10-15 feet. but fun nonetheless

Did the original route - fun and has a little of everything. I got to lead the $ chimney pitch. For a Monday in mid-Oct it was somewhat busy, but that's to be expected. Awesome climb and amazing views from a real airy summit block. Good day!

Last leg of the Tenaya-Matthes-Cathedral Linkup. An outstanding route and very fun, definitely my favorite out of those three. It did help starting the climb after 5pm as there was no one else on route. I was on the summit by 6pm and back at the car (Tenaya Lake) by 8pm.

Probably one of the coolest summits that I have had the chance to stand on. Amazing views in an amazing location. The SE Buttress had about 50 people on it the day we climbed it!

Three parties waiting for Chimney so we went up
left side. Wind whipping around corner made it
exciting! Great pro.

splattskiLate start on SE Buttress  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 19, 2013


We got a late start on the SE Buttress after having to wait till 8am to secure a campsite at the Meadows. So started behind many parties. Had to wait under them. Then the sky started to spit and boom.
But got off safely.
Big fun for a couple old duffers.

Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2013


What a way to get introduced to outdoor rock climbing - this iconic peak and its East Buttress route were the victim of my determination on a fine July afternoon. Awesome climb and hopefully the first of many!!

Fun route. We found the Class 3 no problem at all, but 2 of 3 in our group (including me) used a rope on the short 10-ft crack on the summit block. Great views once you get above the trees.

Climbed on a windy spring day via my own variation of the Mountaineer's Route. Still some steep frozen snow on the route which could be avoided by staying low toward Eichorn and then high on the ridge to the summit. Quite exposed 4th class with mostly good holds.
