Second time in two weeks; this time with steeleman.

What a beautiful day in the backcountry!! We practically had the route to ourselves.

MishaRoute Climbed: SE Buttress (5.7 var) Date Climbed: October 10, 2005  Sucess!


My 3rd time on the summit. This time with Etsuko and Mike. This was Etsuko's first outdoor climb after her injury. She even led one pitch! The day was absolutely spectacular: no wind, sunny, no clouds, in the 70s, practically no crowds. We did the 5.7 variation on the lower part of the face

Awesome rock, scenery, and route. A word of caution-- the Class 4 crack at the end would be Class 5 in many other states, and there is almost no room for error there. Once you commit, it takes seconds to do and is pretty easy to descend.

Once committed to a crowded climb, this is a really fun route. We hit a perfect window between the super alpine starters and the masses. Simul climbed to the chimney and pitched it out from there. Much fun and a great summit.

Really fun, forgiving climbing with great views! Did route 'C' from Supertopo - lots of fun. Climbed with Jim Wosnak. Summited Eichorn's Pinnacle too - great exposure and fun rap.

Beautiful climb - great rock and sunny weather, kick-ass exposure and views. Sweet summit, too. Beware rope drag on the last pitch - best to do it in 2 or (gasp!) run it out!

This was my first long roped climb, and I returned a few years later and led it. The summit of Cathedral is certainly one of the most special places on the planet, particularly if you have it to yourself (and your partner....).

After Saturday on the domes, a late breakfast at tioga pass cabins, a less than direct approach, and on the wall at 3. A beautiful day capped by sunset on the summit, descent by headlamp, and dinner at the road. What could be more pleasant?

This was the first of three on our way from Tuolmne Meadows to the valley. It was very enjoyable, I would love to go back.

Started from the trailhead at 4:30 in the morning and were the first on the route having passed many climbers camping at Budd Lake and at least one party camping at the base. I started at the wrong place and ended up on some 5.9 rock, but eventually we found ourselves on route and 2 hours later were standing on the summit. We scrambled down the opposite side and ended up linking up with the Cathedral Lakes Trail and were back at the car well before lunch.
