Dayhike from Inspiration point. Perfect weather. Couldn't find a register, but there were two full waterbottles at the summit -- weird.

Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2008


4 day backpacking trip through Desolation Wilderness. Definitely more challenging to climb with a large pack, but we still made it! Then we traversed over to Jacks! Long fun windy day.

Darren9Ice climbing on Dicks?  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 11, 2012


Yes it's true we hiked ice gear all the way into Dicks Peak because there was nowhere else to find ice in Tahoe. Turns out the extremely low snow and cold temps created very firm snow conditions (what there was of it) and a thick WI2 flow in a gully on the right side of the north face about 40 meters long, which we enjoyed. I don't expect to see this ever again!

Date Climbed: Oct 16, 2011


Nice hike and great views on E side of Crystal Range with quite a bit of snow still lingering from previous week's storm. Pretty windy but it only made it bearable; very hot when calm.

hgrapidStill some snow en route to Dicks Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2011


Climbed with Janine Peak. The last couple hundred feet on the way to Dicks Pass had some snow, so it was tricky to follow, but the snow has melted considerably in the past couple weeks.

ElGrecoNorth face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 7, 2011


Snowshoed from Eagle Falls trailhead. Very windy up there, but the wind scoured faces made for safe conditions and good cramponing. Not a soul in sight. Plenty of powder still out there.

mrchad9Winter Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 5, 2011


Snowshoed in from Eagle Falls trailhead... and had the place to myself all day. Up the middle of the North Face to Dicks Peak, then followed the ridge out to Jacks Peak. Very cold, windy, and cloudy, but scenic. Had a clear view of Mount Diablo even.

winemanvanWith a Telescope  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 16, 1975


A few friends, my dog and I spent the night on top of Dicks. We brought a telescope and stayed up all night and watched the Russians(USSR at the time)and Americans hook up in space. We could actually tell which craft was Soviet(roundish and green tinted) and which was American(white and cone shaped). Gerald Ford was President, Top Ramen noodles were the most exciting and revolutionary thing in backpacking and my girl friend was getting ready to dump me because I was spending too much time in the Sierras. That's the truth.
