rhyangNorth Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 12, 2006


Climbed with Kris - started at 5am from Saddlebag Lake, got to col between N. Ridge Conness and North Peak around 8, atop second tower by 9:50, summit around 11:45.

Supertopo mentioned two raps from the second tower - we downclimbed the first 30' 5.5 rap, then Kris downclimbed the second 60' 5.6 rap. I chickened out and used the rope on the second rap instead of downclimbing. Oh well ...

Simul-soloed the remainder of the N. Ridge from there - very fun fourth and low fifth class. It would have sucked to pitch out this section, and probably taken a lot longer.

Brought 8.5mm x 50m half rope and a spartan rock rack, rock shoes, and didn't use any of it (except for the rope). Did entire route in approach shoes.

A bit of snow on the descent via Alpine Lake, but it was soft, suncupped and fairly low angle. Back to cars around 2:40pm.

Beautiful cloudless and pleasant day, with superb views from the top. We put a new notebook in the summit register, since DustysDawg advised us the existing logs were full. There was a section of rope affixed to the second rap station, which we removed and packed out.

Climbed with Rob (rhyang). Beautiful day, perfect weather, fun climb. We brought a rope and some gear, but didn't use it, downclimbing wasn't too bad. The section above the 2nd tower is fun, especially when you're right on the ridge with the sheer East wall below you.

This was my first real Sierra summit and since then I have returned many times. I have climbed this on different occasions with Mark Scrivner, Paul Rasmussen ('99), Fraser Street, Brian Zambrano ('04), and Seth Redmore. The North Ridge is an absolute delight, and I really can't wait to get on the west ridge. NR x3 w/ Marina, 7-26-09; NRx4 w/ the meetup 9-11-10; NRx5 w/ the meetup 9-17-11 (via NW Ridge of North Peak)

Crazy day playing hooky from work. Biked from 120 to Sawmill, hiked to snowline, skied up east ridge, climbed over summit and downclimbed the north ridge, traversed back over the summit to the Y-Couloir, skied the Y and glacier, then exited via Greenstone and Saddlebag. Trip report here.

Still one of my all-time favorite ascents. Loved the exposure, loved the rock, loved the direct ascent, love my partner. It was an amazing (although incredibly long) day. We started from Young Lakes and returned to Tuolumne for a 20 hr RT (no need for others to go this slowly!).

Beautiful day in a gorgeous area. The east ridge route is very nice if you stay close to the ridge crest with great views.
