Another lost summit log entry for me...

Hiked via the Alpine Lake route. Some of the best views in this region of the Sierra Nevada!

After hiking Half Dome a couple days before, I took a bus up to Tuolumne Meadows and met up with a friend. We backpacked to Young Lakes and did a day hike to Conness. Lots of scree, and there was at least one move close to the summit was scary, but my friend talked me through it. I was so glad to make it. This peak probably got me addicted to peakbagging. Fun boot ski on the way down. Not a lot of people coming from Young Lakes, but chatted with some friendly folks at the summit.

Date Climbed: Sep 14, 2016


Climbed Mt. Conness on 9/14/2008 with my wife and several friends. This was a very fun hike as we followed no official trail, just route-finding. We gained the ridge a ways south of the peak and then followed the tableland to the knife-edge that leads tot he true summit and descended the same way.

Hiked up from the Saw Mill trailhead through Alpine Lake on a hazy but otherwise beautiful day. Met a group from the SoCal Sierra Club on the summit.

Since I wasn't clear which way to go from Saddlebag Lake, I started from Sawmill Campground, a mile down the road. Nice hike but veru windy and cold on the North side and summit.

Date Climbed: Oct 31, 2015


Plenty of snow around the general area, luckily only affected the lowest part of the ridge, steep parts were clear.

Left rope in pack as I found the downclimbing pretty manageable, this coming from more of a scrambler than technical climber...found it to be on par with some 4th class routes on other peaks.

Really fun route though, can't beat the position right along that shear 1000 foot drop, and of course the great views. And a pretty easy approach and descent down the E ridge. Would've been perfect if there wasn't a relentless 40 mph wind.

Lots of mosquito's, but a beautiful hike with Suzi. The steps near the top were surprising.

Simoed the first few pitches and soloed the rest. Very fun, never seemed to get to hard to continue soloing.

After a party of Vagmarken Crest list finishers on White Mountain (the Sierra White), three of us broke off and ran the ridge to Conness. Busy day on Conness.

We climbed up the East Ridge. Weather was great. Took ~8 hours car to car. Hike was easy and there are lots of way to go up. You can't get lost if you follow any of the maps for this route. Snow-free with lots of talus starting mid-way up the hike. The 360 degree views at the top are great!

What a fun peak. Easy walk up from Conness Lakes. Not so easy hike to the lakes though (long), starting from Lundy Canyon.
