KerstinRoute Climbed: South Slope from the East Date Climbed: September 14, 1993  Sucess!


A great hike in a spectacular area. We had to cross a snowfield in tennis shoes just before we reached pass 11,400. My partner stopped on the slope just above the pass and I continued on, solo.

Got off to a late start, but made it to the top by 1pm. Beautiful day, spectacular hike.

My birthday climb, solo, got snowed on while on the summit, then chased off by the sound of crackling electricity; fun route, I must do it again under better conditions.

soslawRoute Climbed: Y Couloir Date Climbed: August 13, 2005  Sucess!


Summited with Andre sans ice axe and crampons. Gained the base of the couloir via suncups then climbed the rock on the climber's right. A lot of loose rock and holds had to be tested. A couple of class 4 moves 100 feet from the top of the couloir. After exiting the couloir easy class 2-3 scramble via east ridge on good rock to the summit.

MishaRoute Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: August 7, 2005  Sucess!


After quickly changing plans from the West Ridge to the less committing North ridge, Bob Pickering and I solo'd the route just ahead of rain and thunderstorms. We had the route to ourselves. The downclimb from the 2nd tower was much easier than anticipated (5.4?). Awesome climb!

Climbed with Matt Eastman. Altitude got to me and I bonked towards the top. Long day, benighted on the decent. Great climb.

Climbed with Derek Bomholt. Beautiful weather. A bunch of snow on the approach up from Sawmill Campground on the shoulder of Conness. Had a little trouble finding the start, but real straightforward after that. What a great route. Stayed right on the edge/ ridge the whole way. Nicely exposed and fun climbing. Made it back to the car by dark.

Climbed with Mark Danner. A nice hike/climb, but a long day! Kay Redmond from Atlanta (RIP) was along too, but flaked-out below the summit...

didn't have any gear, but did link up with some folks & made a snow bollard to hand rappell the hard & fast! snowfield descent. One of my favorites. I also love fishing for the trout in the streams below.

Climbed this long before I was in summit post. Just remember it was a long day. Started around 6:00am. I fell and smashed two fingers on the way up so crack jamming was difficult. Got back to the car around 10:00pm. Was a great hike and climb.

granite4brainsRoute Climbed: Glacier Route Date Climbed: 07/20/01  Sucess!


Day hiked the glacier route from Saddlebag Lake. Came down the Carnegie Institute side. Very hard and icy couloirs off the glacier. Loose rock to get around the Bergschrund. Overall a fun climb - but a long day.

This was my favorite peak for a while. I used it to measure my acclimatization. I know I did it five times, maybe more. I love that peak.

Matthew HollimanRoute Climbed: West Ridge; North Ridge (East Ridge/Alpine Lake descent) Date Climbed: June 10, 2004; July 31, 2004  Sucess!

The first time was a Ragged-Conness-White dayhike with Bob out of Tuolumne Meadows. The West Ridge is an awesome climb, great fun even with a rope--we simulclimbed most of it, but it would be cool to come back and solo it... if I can find a way to bypass the first couple of pitches! Those are beyond my limited soloing skills. A dusting of snow from a storm the day before made the 5.6 crux a bit spicy for me, as the snow tended to accumulate in all the holds.

The second visit was on the first day of Bob's Sierra Challenge, when we soloed the North Ridge (except for those darned rappels). Linking up that with the NW Ridge on North Peak was perhaps the most enjoyable day in the Sierra yet. Fantastic rock with bomber holds the whole way. I'll definitely be doing that one again.

hyperbolictansRoute Climbed: East Ridge from Saddlebag Lake Date Climbed: 10th Oct. 2004  Sucess!


Started from Saddlebag Lake at 7:40am and reached the summit at about 12:30pm . Great weather. Climbed w/ 2 friends. There was another group of two who started off later but overtook us on the way up. They then led us on an interesting variation that bypassed Alpine lake on the way down. There is almost no more writing material in the summit ammo box. Do bring a notebook up if you're heading up there soon.
