Great trip to ski the Conness Glacier. Left from 120 (road was still closed) with full packs, dropped them at Greenstone and continued up glacier to summit. Camped at Greenstone and skied North Peak the next day. Click on thumb for trip report:

From Saddlebag Lake, I followed the creek drainage past the Carnegie Research station and ascended the south ridge from the east about two miles south of the peak. There, I caught the trail to the peak. Great views of the Yosemite area. I followed the same route both ascents.

The second peak of the day for the first day of the Sierra Challenge. The solo climbing was fun and very solid.

Afternoon start provided nice alpenglow descent. I was surely "shot down" by a fighter jet giving thumbs up sign then banking towards Cathedral Peak. Great day....

Somewhere I got the idea that there was a class 3 route to the right of the glacier. Nope. Got stopped out near the top of the glacier. Went back the next day and did the easy class 2 route up the south slope.

We got off route at the begining and had to climb the cliffs to gain the ridge - this cost us maybe 2-3 hours of time. Got to the summit at 8pm - great climbing all along and the views are awesome! Descended via East Ridge and Alpine Lake - we got a little lost in the dark... back at car at 3am...

Climbed this route with Bob Burd and his group on day one of the 2004 Sierra Challenge. We started with the Northwest Ridge of North Peak and linked it up with this route. Climbed without ropes except for the rappels off the second tower. Descent via the East Ridge.

Second time on this fun route. Still, for some reason, I haven't been able to finish this route before dark, and this time was no exception.

Dave KRoute Climbed: West Ridge (sort of) Date Climbed: July 24, 2004  Sucess!
Started off on the wrong ridge--just north of the West Ridge. The first 5 pitches of this variation were, nonetheless, high quality moderate climbing. We ended up doing a bit of downclinbing and a rap to get on the actual route. We finished on the actual West Ridge, which is simply spectacular. This was my 5th time on the summit.

My original objective was just to climb the West Ridge of Mt. Conness. I talked myself into making a rather long day out of it. I began at Saddlebag Lake and walked around North Peak and up to North Peak's Northwest Ridge. The climb up North Peak was pleasant, but the 5.3 rating is a joke. It's just a walkup with a few third class moves for interest.

From North Peak, I headed over to Mt. Conness and climbed the North Ridge, which I had climbed several times before. Next, I downclimbed the West Face of Mt. Conness, mostly on third class rock just north of the West Ridge. I accidentally downclimbed about 200 feet too far and had to climb back up to the start of the route.

Both prongs of the West Ridge looked inviting, but the left one looked easier than 5.6. I started up the right prong and found excellent 5.6 climbing. Several times, I encountered moves I didn't want to solo, so I backed down a ways and found something more to my liking. I stayed on the crest of the ridge as much as I could and reached the summit 55 minutes after starting up. This climb definitely deserves Croft's "Awesome ***" rating!

Finally reached the summit after turning back a couple of years ago. Great day, great adventure, great company. A short trip report.

A very enjoyable climb with Matthew on a near-perfect day. As the Saddlebag entrance wasn't open, we did a dayhike out of Tuolumne Meadows. Trip Report

Climbed with Dave on Father's Day.

Dave's first alpine climb and only his second rock climb.

This is really a great intro route to alpine rock.

3:48 from the car via the Couloir of North Peak. I soloed the North Ridge in ice-climbing boots. 5:29 car to car.

What an awesome climb! The approach is magnificent through alpine meadows and past alpine lakes. After working your way up several tiers of alpine, you arrive at a beautiful view of Mt. Conness. Even the steep scree field to the base of the North Ridge seemed relatively easy going with such beautiful surroundings. We did the first three to four pitches unroped and in hiking boots--quite easy, just lots of exposure. Enjoyed the climb and the manditory raps midway through. With the exception of one other party quite a ways ahead of us, we had the entire mountain--including summit--to ourselves. One of our most favorite climbs to date!!

A solo climb on a great fall day in Northern Yosemite. IMO, one of the best peaks in the area to climb.

Climbed what I thought was a new route on the wide face north of the classic W Ridge route. Great climbing with superb rock.

Always an enjoyable summit. Led group of kids with Matt Biers in '86. Did North Ridge with friends Hugh Sakols and Mara Dale in '01. Returned with John Pfeiffer to brave the chilly late Oct. winds that same year.
