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.

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.

Fun route, approached over North Peak Pass from Saddlebag Lake. A good route for a solo if you're comfortable at the grade, seems like every other log entry on the summit said "FREE SOLO!!!" but that's what you get in Yosemite I guess.

Climbed with a team of 8 from Sierra mountaineering club. This was a practice climb to get the team ready for a climb in the Cascades. Great rock and a fun day.

Maybe I remember it differently since I was a little newer to moderate scrambles, but I prefer the North Ridge to the West Ridge. Smoke was starting to get bad.

Liberator16Mt Conness from Young Lakes  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2012
Started the day before out of Tuolomne Meadows, hiked and camped at Young Lakes. Hiked out of the Young Lakes bowl area and onto the granite talus field up to the summit plateau. There was a faint trail on the granite talus, but it was very steep. Two steps forward, one step back. From there I could see the summit, had to hike over a couple of snowfields to get to the base of the last climb to the top. This part on the south face was short, only gained about 400', but somewhat technical and scary in parts. There was somewhat of a staircase that I could follow part of the time. But it ended up being a great hike and I made it to the top in about 3 hours from Young Lakes.

Brought a rope for rappelling the second tower but ended up down-climbing, instead.

A good day on a good climb with the good company.


(And YES!!! After so many years, I finally made my way up via the North Ridge!!!!!!!!)
