ASteeleRoute Climbed: Standard walk-up Date Climbed: July 2002  Sucess!


A group of friends and I hiked up Dana one night after work to watch the moonrise. We had only been on top for 5 minutes or so when the biggest moon I've ever seen popped out over Mono Lake and the Craters. Up there with the most breathtaking things I've ever seen, for sure. The walk-off was mellow with a headlamp and a little moonlight.

Really nice day hike. Mono Lake from the summit was awsome. The register on the summit had some really moving entries in it.

We climbed it on our second attempt, but reached the summit at sundown. This time all the snow had turned to ice. We had to barrow some icesrews and in exchange had a team of three tag on our rope. Late night it was when we got back to the car.

Had a day off mid-week and went for it. Huffed and puffed due to sea-level lungs.

This was such a fun little hike, with really awesome views. We even got to glissade a bit on the way down - sometimes it wasn't steep enough though, so we had to take a running start :)

Third time summiting Dana this year...my excuse this trip was placing a summit register, since the old one has been gone since forever. Standard military surplus ammo box (nicely airtight...it hissed when I opened it at the summit), secured in rocks.

asmrzRoute Climbed: Dana Couloir Date Climbed: September 25th  Sucess!


On September 25th, 2004, Penelope May and I climbed the Dana Couloir from our campsite on the right side (looking up) of the sickle shaped lake just below Dana Lake. The couloir was in perfect conditions with rock hard water ice in the center and good alpine ice on both sides. At the top of the gully we turned left, and traversed the ridge back to Dana Plateau. There we droped down the steep scree slope back to our tent.

The weather was perfect so I stopped at Tioga Pass in the afternoon before driving home and decided to hike the peak. Since I started late (ca. 4:15 pm) I saw a lot of people coming down. I was the only one going up. That was a good thing as I was the only one on the summit. It took me about 1:45 hrs to get to the summit, 3 hrs. round trip. I felt well acclimitized and rested. The view from the summit was well worth the hike.

Gorgeous views, and if you start early enough you miss the crowds.

tahoeberneRoute Climbed: From Tioga Pass up the north slope. Date Climbed: Circa 1988 and again in February 1990  Sucess!


An easy, direct hike and plenty of beautiful wildflowers on the lower slope.

When I stayed at the Tioga Lodge in the winter I snowshoed most of the peak from the pass and carefully hiked over snow and ice to the summit.

I did this as a "cool-down" hike after Connes the previous day. Very nice views from the top - Mono Lake, Conness, Lyell...
