Stunning. Um..... the couloir is steeper than it looks in the picutures.

Tagged this one as a freebie after traversing over from Bear & Pipsqueak Spires. Perfect weather and never saw anyone past long lake. I've also never seen so many BMW's and Mercedes parked at a trailhead in my life.

Went with the Sierra Club (Loma Prieta - PCS). Conditions in the couloir were good. The Rock Creek drainage is very scenic.

I climbed this mountain with my friend Samantha and a Sierra Club party that we met along the way. I thoroughly enjoyed this route. The conditions in the Hourglass Couloir were excellent. It wasn't as steep as I expected.

Thoroughly enjoyable dayhike out of Rock Creek Lake with Sam, Michael and Bob on a picture-perfect day: blue skies, snow everywhere, a gorgeous setting. I don't care too much for Little Lakes Valley in the summer compared to elsewhere in the Sierra (too many people), but it's pretty darned nice in the spring. We'd hoped to climb the North Face, but recent unconsolidated snow made that a dicey proposition at best, so we climbed a small chute to the north of the Hourglass instead. Phenomenal summit views, some of the best I've ever seen in the Sierra.

Climbed with a bunch people from the CMC. Lately, I seem to be climbing into white-out conditions. The leader (Ron) had a GPS with waypoints from when he climbed Dade before. So, we reached the summit with no problems. Great glissade back down to our tents.

Took a friend up for some spring skiing and peak bagging. It was his first time on skis. An athletic type, he was prone to thinking he could do anything physical he set his mind to. Kind of annoying at times. This was my revenge! Going in and up the peak was great, then skiing out with full pack, he kept falling and cursing. Oh well, dude. Live and learn. Great summit though. Worth doing again some day with more snow and skiing from the summit.

Excellent climb and fun glissade down. On the 2005 climb, encountered some near white-out conditions. Tried skiing down in 2006

Robert Somoano and I climbed the Classic North Face from our camp at Dade Lake in August 1981. This was one of several trips I made over the years up this peak.

My climbing partners being late, I soloed this ice gully and found it ( in August of 1995 ) to be about 800' and 50 degrees of snow with water ice at the top. In 2002, it wasn't even there ( very dry snow year )!

Climbed the 100 Classics Route on the North Face with Tim Winiarski and Bob Lathuras. I found it a fun, challenging climb with a few objective dangers. Recommended.

I got to climb the Hourglass twice in four days, once for Pipsqueak Spire, once for Mt. Dade. With axe and no crampons, I was able to avoid most of the snow by staying on the rocks to the left of the Hourglass, then traversing up and right across the snow where the slope lessens near the top. We stayed at Treasure Lakes, an great spot from which to hit the major peaks along the Sierra Crest in this area. Only regret not climbing Bear Creek Spire - that'll have to wait for another day. Trip Report.



Climbed in heavy spring conditions (TONS of snow) with Matthew, Michael, and Sam. Great fun! Trip Report

Attempted this peak on a trip with Shubo (Steve) Dai. We avoided the ice in the Hourglass by taking the narrow chute to the right. It was about 45 degrees and had lots of loose rock, not much good holds on the side. We made it to the top of the Hourglass and turned back after ascending about 1/3 of the south slope, mainly because of the fierce cold winds. Descending the solid 40 degree ice of the Hourglass with only an ice axe was the riskiest thing I've ever done. In hindsight it would have been much safer to descend the route we came up.
