CWesselsVia East Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 9, 2013


Climbed the East Ridge from Saddlebag, including the "East Buttress." Some of the chutes up the buttress seemed to end in Class 4 or 5 climbing--or, at least the chute I climbed up did. But I was able to traverse through a notch out of the chute and into another to keep it Class 3. The ridge to the summit was pretty thrilling too.

I agree with some other people here that patrons of this route should climb the ridge directly from Saddlebag instead of trying to traverse around the lower contours to the base of the East Buttress. That was very tedious and somewhat unpleasant.

I went into a Mt. Conness trip as a bit of an afterthought, not really thinking much of it aside from it being just another Yosemite/Sierra peak. But wow, I absolutely loved it. It is a phenomenal choice for a midrange day hike out of Tuolumne, much better than Dana or the other popular ones. It has great views, exciting exposure, some glissading options, and the last 300-400ft of exposed scrambling was a blast! I’d consider it more of a Class 2 with significant exposure; for example, on the left and right may be a 40-200ft drop off, but ahead of you you’ve got a good 1-3ft wide line of boulders to scramble on. I dunno. It was enough to make me take deliberate steps/holds but not enough to trigger panic. Trip report/GPX Track

One of the best summits I have ever been on top of. Great class 2 section to the top. Mosquitos were terrible until almost 12,000 feet in elevation but totally worth it.

Loved the rock on this route; lots of variation. Descended via the leftmost snow couloir; had to negotiate a bergshrund down below. Recommended.

Started at Saddlebag TH but missed the trail going to the left from the dam and went around to the right, so went up the East Ridge from Conness Lakes. I followed the ridge until I reached a spot that was too scarey for me to do alone so bailed down a chimney to the south and then traversed across the rocks to connect with the normal route up the scree and rocks back up to the ridge and then across to the summit. Loved the cool rocky trail on the final summit climb!

Thankful to do this on a day with absolutely glorious weather and with a fun group of people, one of whom knew the route. The third class bit at the top was very fun and the views are spectacular! Highly recommend as a very reasonable non-technical route.

Date Climbed: Oct 13, 2012


Repeat of my original climb 13 years ago, under condition of a light snow cover with Mike Chen. Just as I remembered, very enjoyable scrambling with hardly any loose rock, each twist and turn of the route reveal dramatic scenery. This is a true classic.

My first scramble was a lot of fun, had some route finding issues and had to backtrack a couple of times but really liked the scrambling aspect. Final few hundred feet were very enjoyable.

I hiked Conness, up the walkoff described in the supertopo guide. Starting at the Saddlebag Lake parking, then walking the trail out past the Carnegie Institute. NOT past Alpine lake, we went to the low point on the ridge between White Mountain and Conness.

If anyone happened to find a Canon A720 in a black leather bag, with a red climbing sling attached to it, I would really appreciate getting it back.
