BranchWhitneyEast Couloir Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2008
This is one of the best summits in the Yosemite region. Scenic route and Matterhorn has that majestic look. There's a climber's path 75% of the route.

Long dayhike with Ol' Walsher ... the sandy SE slope was horrible. The views from the top of the Yosemite backcountry, however, were sublime...

Date Climbed: Aug 23, 2008


Started at Twin Lakes, followed Horse Creek, and ascended the SE side. The rough footing on much of the trail made for a tiring but rewarding day

Up the creek, around the back, up some rocks, across some scree... Not sure exactly how we made it up there, but we did. The scramble to the top was awesome. The drive back to the bay area sucked.

Climbed all over the mountain taking the least practical routes (not on purpose!). Loved the scramble to the summit.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2008


Camped at lake at 9,800'. Used crampons to get to start. A lot of loose rock coming down from climbers above. Crux is the very last move above the dihedral and small chimney where you will want to haul your packs.

A slog to the pass, did some fun class 3 as we moved toward the East to ascend, back down for a steak and beer at Twin lakes.

car-to-car in a day via the north arete.
The view from the top was a little hazy due to the recent fires.

Did the 5.9 variation at the bottom; the rest of the usual route was better quality rock, though, so is best to skip this variation and get up high quicker - leaves more time for skiing back down.

Hey Brian,

Sorry I missed you a couple weeks back. I went up there Sunday (9th), I went up and down the East Couloir. Glad I wasn't really there for the skiing, it wasn't so good.

Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2007
Climbed with Kovarpa. Whatever we did, it certainly wasn't the 5.4 / 5.5 route the guidebooks describe. I took my 1st fall (nothing big really) at the beginning of P1 and that took the wind out of my sail. After that Pavel all the way to the summit. Nice climb, but I guess I wasn't in the right state of mind for it.

Date Climbed: Aug 25, 2007


for a summit of the Matterhorn Peak as one of my partners showed up way out-of-shape for a five day trip to the Palisades. Wish the East Couloir would have been in shape, but the SE ridge ascent-SE face descent treated me just fine. Great approach that has a little bit of everything.
