WayneFryEast Ridge from Lost Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 14, 2013


Climbed with a team of three from SMC. Roughly a 13 mile trip from Happy Isles. Interesting route finding along the way between Lost Lake and the summit. Views from the top are stunning. Looking forward to coming back and climbing Leconte Gully and taking a shot at an alternative descent route.

dkangasEast Ridge via Lost Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Nov 17, 2011
Hooked up with the use-trail to Snake Dike at the top of Nevada Falls and took that to the ridge between Half-Dome and Grizzly Peak. Going that high up is not necessary, since I then had to down-climb about 800 feet to Grizzly. However, the views from that point on the ridge are not to be beat. The summit block by way of the east ridge is messy and involves some tricky route-finding, but stays class 3. Once on top, you find yourself on a crow's nest with 360 degree views. I went back along the ledge that bisects the cliff straight toward Mt. Broderick--bushwhacky but quicker. A fine day. I'm glad to have acquainted myself with that peak I've seen my whole life, but never visited.

Very fun gully, occasionally dirty and loose rock. The scariest class 4 section was on good solid feldspar, but the same can not be said for much of the rock on the rest of the route. Take a rope or rock shoes (at the least) if you are at all wary of exposed and loose class 4 scrambling. Awesome summit block. Descended along the ridge over towards Half Dome and then down between Liberty Cap and Broderick.

This was a really fun day: Great rock, great weather, great exposure, and easier than I'd expected too. Thoroughly enjoyable.

A surprisingly enjoyable route. Matthew and I flailed a the start of the route, using a rope to attempt something we couldn't surmount until an easier scramble was found nearby. Only the crux chimney required a rope. Excellent spring weather all day. Trip Report
