Iron HikerLong climb but magnificent views!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2010

Iron Hiker

A very nice summit in a beautiful area. The climb is long, though! The last slope is a little anticlimatic but the summit was spectacular. Had a little altitude headache at the last part but it went away after some rest and deep breathing. The climb took almost 11 hours.

A challenging day hike from Twin Lakes brought us to the top although the scree did its best to stop us. Great peak and view.

Guided by Tony Brown of MAS. Tough climb for me even on second. Amazing route, beautiful views. Would highly recommend but you must be good at route finding.

Fun time going up the East Couloir. We ended up camping out near a pond at about 9800 ft the first day. Amazing views once you get to the base of the Matterhorn glacer. No snow in the couloir by this time of year so we had to scratch our way up loose rocks. Best part of the climb was the last couple hundred feet once you get out of the couloir.

Climbed the North Arete with rhyang in great weather. Interesting route, and on the hike out we were carried home by the sounds of a rather lame cover band playing Honky Tonk Woman and other standards at the Mono Village Resort.

Swapped leads with Justin - I led pitches 2, 4 and 6. Got off-route on pitch 4 and ended up below the Double Dihedral. Justin led back to the N Arete proper on pitch 5, around the chockstone. The last pitch was good and sustained.

Camped at the tarn at ~9800'. Perfect summer day.

Route climbed: West Couloir
Date climbed: 13-June-2010

Snow-camped at 9800' the night before, then did the west couloir the next morning. Fun scrambling, descended third class ledges back to the east couloir, which was about half melted out (and somewhat crowded -- greeted four people who were coming up it :)

Beautiful day, somewhat hot by afternoon. Snow level about 8500-9000', melting fast.

Also did the east couloir (descended via Horse Creek Pass) in May 2008.

Had a nice campsite just over Horse Creek Pass. Very smokey on top due to the fires in Yosemite.

Awesome camp spot on the moraine, much closer and more convenient than the lake. Currently lots of water all over the place, no need to bring virtually any water on the approach. Good route with lots of loose rock in the first half, but really fun on the second.

Up from Horse Creek Pass the first day of an overnight with Whorl. One of my favorite weekends in the Sierra. Camped at the lake south of the pass, and climbed Matterhorn's southeast slopes that afternoon. Great views down Spiller Canyon.

Climbed the East Couloir with SMG, temps of 18 degrees at mid-day. Brrr! Great finish to the summit with some snow, rock and tiny bit of ice. Rewarding mountain and view.

Camped at Matterhorn Lake and climbed the southeast side to the top. Beautiful campsite, beautiful summit. A bit sloggy.

A long dayhike and you may have it to yourself. Good views into a part of Yosemite that few ever see.

Seen it many times while backpacking. The view is a bit different from the summit!

Fun climb up, although I had to do my only self arrest ever in the snow gully (waited too long to put crampons on). One of our party bonked on the way out, and we ended up coming out in the middle of the night - not fun.

Great climb! Ended up climbing part of the N Arete and then the last twoish pitches of the double dihedral thing. All the climbing was really fun!
