Date Climbed: Sep 9, 2006


Very long day. Need to simul climb until after the second rappel. Descent route is hidden behind ridge; easy to go toward White mtn which is the wrong way.

forjanNorth Ridge/West Ridge link-up  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 15, 2007


Soloed with Michelle and Deron (~ 9.5 hrs car-to-car). Next year: link-up North Peak's NW Ridge --> Conness North Ridge --> Conness West Ridge.

Route Climbed: North Ridge
Date Climbed: September 16, 2006

After a solo of the left couloir of North Peak, I continued on to the north ridge of Conness. On the second rappel from the 2nd tower, my 50m rope got stuck about half way. So, I had to go back up and free the rope caught under a flake. Was dragging ass because it took me 2.5 hrs from the summit of North Peak (10:45am) to the summit of Conness (1:15pm). My heavier mountaineering boots had something to do with it. Back at Saddlebag Lake parking lot at 3:55pm (~ 9.5 hrs roundtrip).

Route Climbed: West Ridge
Date Climbed: September 3, 2006

Climbed the west ridge with awagher. Long day. CTC=14.5 hrs.

Route Climbed: North Ridge
Date Climbed: September 6, 2003

Climbed the North Ridge with fellow SCMA member Steven Sauter. Route-finding was not a problem. We climbed unroped 'til we got to the top of the 2nd tower (just where there is a cordolette cord with 2 rings on it). We rappelled down the 2 pitches (this being the crux of the climb), and then I led all the pitches to the summit. After the 2nd rappel, all the pitches to the summit looked to me as class 4 with maybe a few 5.2 moves. We had good weather (clear & sunny), although it was windy on the ridge most of the time.

Route Climbed: East Ridge from Alpine Lake
Date Climbed: October 20, 2002

A nice fun climb. We were a party of four: mdostby, jimconsid, Will and I. We started walking around 6:35am from the hiker campground on Saddlebag Lake. We hiked cross-country close to the south side of the ridge coming from Saddlebag Lake dam. Took a snack break near Alpine Lake and then went onto scrambling up the East Ridge to the summit plateau. There was a cross cairn up there to mark for your way down. The final push was a short moderately exposed class 3 section. I reached the summit at 10:43am. Will, Jim and Mike followed. We all had lunch at the summit while enjoying the views. We had a fantastic day: sunny, almost windless, and very clear. We could see Half Dome clearly, Mt Lyell, Mt Dana, North Peak, Boundary Peak in Nevada, the Cathedral range among others. All in all, a great day!

Gorgeous day !!! Lots of SP'ers on the summit together today. forjan you are an animal (running to the summit is superhuman). mybackyard and fossana only 4 minutes and 10 minutes behind forjan, you qualify as animals also with your second summit of the day!! wingding it was a pleasure to make your acquaintance along with Dave, Bruce, Alan, and Frank. I guess Mt Conness was violated from all 4 sides today.

Started at 5:30 am from the parking lot at Saddlebag lake with fossana and forjan. Solo'd the North Ridge, had a snack at the summit, then descended to the base of the West Ridge and solo'd again to the summit. Back to the Car in 9.5 hours. Awesome weather, bad ass granite, good company. A good day.

Superb scrambling up the east ridge from Saddlebag Lake. Wonderful views and a wonderful day. Down via Alpine Lake. Luckily I started early and it didn't start raining until after I got back and made it down to Lee Vining.

Thomas Gurviez

Ascent by the glacier up to the unpassable bergshrund of the central couloir. This bergshrund can be avoided by the loose rocks on the right, then back to the couloir above the bergshrund, with some exposure then up to the ridge.

Climbed with sodapants, from Sawmill Campground. Four hours up, two hours down. From Alpine Lake, we took snow fields below summit plateau to get to the top segment of East Ridge. Deep sun cups and soft snow slowed us down. A photo report is available.

Jon and I were hoping to climb the West Ridge. Unfortunately we ended ended up traversing left pass the base of the ridge and climbed an arrete instead that was on the left of a massive gully. We had a sweet climb up sublime 4th easy 5th class granite only to summit on peaklet that was seperated from the summit via a deep notch. Doh! Wrong ridge but a sweet climb nonetheless. The descent was hellacious though we had to trudge through some deep snow and ran out of water.

great day out climbing with ChuckO. Took us about 14:30 car-to-car. Some time was wasted by route-find error (mine) in which we followed up the incorrect drainage, and then had to climb up and over the east ridge to get into the correct one. Total time on route was ~4:30. Fun climb.

With Kurt (thanks Buddy!). Great day. Would agree with the description "exposed". Simul-climbed most, belayed a few spots.

Kind of a chilly day, but nice. Climbed ropeless with Doug. Easier than I thought it would be.

Momentous day. Unfortunately we jumped on the ridge behind the west ridge, and ended up on a little peaklet looking across a notch at the summit.
