Had a perfect day summiting Mt Dade via the Hourglass Couloir with my climbing partner & daughter Melissa Thaw. Excellent snow in couloir. Above & below the Houglass was bare rocks/boulders. Perfect weather. Thanx to Melissa for a wonderful climb. russ thaw

Posted up in softer afternoon conditions after backpacking in to Treasure Lakes, mostly rock above the hourglass. Happy to be up so late in the day (5:30 PM), the light and clouds around Bear Creek Spire were excellent. Started icing up on the way back.

The couloir was covered with postholing type of snow, but the day was sunny and brisk and the climb was enjoyable. The ridge to the summit was mixed rock and snow so slippery going with boots. Most of the top was covered with fresh snow.

Needed an easy dayhike after the 14+hr outing the day before. Beautiful weather but very hot in the couloir where I also got attacked by mosquitos. Soft snow conditions made for a great glissade on the descent. The top of the couloir is alredy pretty melted out and all the loose rubble really sucks! Amazing displays of wildflowers just a few 100ft below the summit.

After being denied by high winds and snow at the top of the Hourglass on the 27th, we returned for a dayhike revenge trip a couple days later. Snow was still unconsolidated from the previous weekend storms making the class 2 section above the couloir particularly dicey, but at least we didn't have to walk the road section from the Pack Station a second time. Great views, will definitely be back to the Rock Creek area.

Patchy snow below Long Lake, continuous above. Couloir was in good shape. Not as steep as expected. Last ~400 feet to the summit were a slog/swim through the snow.

Conditions in the couloir were perfect from kicking steps in solid snow on the way up in the morning to glissading and plunge stepping on the way down in the early afternoon. Steve Curry lead 9 of us up this peak on a fun SPS trip. Trip Report.

climbed the peak with ChuckO and oldmanmike from SP; they split off heading toward the hourglass while I carried my tools up to the northern side looking for any inviting ice. Spotted some water ice forming in a north eastern couloir and climbed it! ~ WI2, about 550(?) feet, class 4, good fun but C O L D!

Debbi and I enjoyed easy couloir conditions on the way to the summit. The scree at the top of the couloir BLOWS!!

My 1st snow climb in the Sierras as part of a Sierra Club WTC trip. It was such an fun climb that I've been hooked on climbing in the Sierras ever since. The views in this area are spectacular, particularly in the spring or early summer.

Took a solo day trip for an attempt on Mt Dade via easiest way possible for someone with a bad shoulder. Wellll, I ended up doing some 5th class climbing anyway in an effort to avoid so much scree. SO MUCH SCREE! The couloir was awesome, what 300' of snow is left, and the scramble to the summit was great fun while stopping to breathe every 3rd move. Beautiful view from up top, watched the snow clouds roll in and once I had descended safely away to take off my helmet and don the MP3 player, it started raining and hailing the entire trip back to my truck. Too tired to take my jacket out of my pack...what's a little water and ice in the hair during a 12 hour day in the Sierras?! Think I'd like to try it again with more snow, postholing beats scree.
