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.

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.

Fun day with Jeff & Caleb. First climbed with Jim in July '84. Suzi & Scott (6/1989). I miss you Suzi.
Also with Todd & Devin (2010), Mark & Marty (Galen Rowell passed us - on 8/23/96), with motorcycle Ron around 1986 (I never did get my old harness & climbing shoes back).

Great Weather, 5 pitches, first real multi-pitch route with Josh Helling, guide from Yosemite Climbing school and Ian Fyfe. Highly recommend Josh as a guide.

There is a trail built to the saddle now. That last 15 ft. will get your attention.

Climbed the short south wall at about midway between Eichorn Pinnacle and the main summit. It was just under three pitches of a mix of class 4 and up to about 5.5. Very enjoyable and recommended route.

nice little bit of climbing to top out on the summit block! AMAZING views of eichorn, the prize climb. Some crazy dirtbag dude topped out on the summit at the same time, he had free soloed the SE buttress.

jmcgreat climb but crowded  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2012


started off on a bluebird day, by the second pitch crowds were gathering. by the third pitch clouds were gathering. when we made it to the summit blocks we could see rain in the distance and hear thunder so we beat it out of there. We made it back to the start in time for heavy hail and rain. There were still several (crazy) parties climbing in the rain and lightning.
