FairweatherReg. Route & Fairest of All  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 9, 1984


Reg. Route with Tim back in the day.
Fairest with Jim in late 80's, and repeated with Marty in the late 90's (included an unplanned bivy just below the top after getting a late start 12:45). Very cold night.
Have gone back at least twice to repeat the Regular Route but gave up due to the crowds.

jesu, joy of man\'s desiring

fantastic knobs, flakes, and fingerlocks!

I led the entire route...wearing ancient Boreal Aces and a swami belt of 2" red webbing--no harness

antique cams worked fine, along with a few small/medium/large stoppers

Started this climb a little late in the day (12:30ish). We ran into ice the whole way up the climb and it was a nightmare. We ended up finishing the last pitch with a headlamp and hiking back to the car in the dark. Give the Regular Route a few days to thaw out after an early fall snow storm..

Out by myself. Found an interlinking series of dihedrals and seams on the eastern side and opted for that instead of the southwest slope (a dreary trudge). Broke out the rock shoes halfway up.

Great climbing on regular route! Did it in 9 pitches with Dennis Delay to the summit. Excellent walk off.

Traversed from Medlicott Dome. Descended NE Ridge - a fine scramble, better than the South Slope. Trip Report

One of my best days with my old high school climbing partner Evan. Good times- we simuled half of it just because we were teens and kept missing belays by accident!

Climbed with a good friend. Got to lead the crux 5.9 pitch-clean (even though it had water all over the crux)! Very exciting climb. Clean rock, good pro.

First pitch was wet. A route finding mistake on the traverse cost me some time but gained me someone else's bail sling and biner.

2 days after Tioga Road opened there was still lots (3-4 feet) of snow here. But it was very hikable on the crusty top from Cathedral Lakes trailhead and was able to navigate to Fairview Dome's south side and go up. Had summit (and maybe entire sub-range) to myself.

Strolled up the south side after earlier climbing Cathedral Peak. I wanted to enjoy the neat experience of walking up 100's of feet of smooth granite and was not disappointed! I think this dome is overlooked quite a bit by hikers since it's mainly a rock climbing place.....
