Summited with Jim who accompanied me on Williamson and Tyndall in May and Kevin. The couloir was in good condition with hard neve in the shade with that exposed to the sun softening a little. No ice encountered. The summit was clear and warm with Yosemite's panarama to the west and Mono lake and the Owens valley to the east.

On July 30, 2005 My best friend Bret and I summited Mount Dana in 4 1/2 hours and it was my first ever high elevation hike. The scenerey was absolutley breath taking. This was a hike I will never forget and am looking forward to Mt Whitney at the end of August.

Thanks to Bret for Inviting me to go up with him.

Climbed with balajisv. Bergschrund is just opening, about 10 ft. long. We brought rope and pro but didn't need it as there wasn't any ice exposed in the gully.

Route Climbed: Glacier Canyon/North Face Date Climbed: 7/10/2004 Sucess!
Climbed with Anna on her quest to conquer Dana. We decided to not be a tourist and do a variation starting in Glacier Canyon. We descended the normal route.

Incredible summit views. The skiing down the NE ridge and the couloir was the best backcountry skiing I've ever done. Well, almost the best, but I won't say where that was...

Heavy snow year in 2005 - looks like Dana Couloir will have snow for another few weeks. Approach was extremely long, so much sun cup snow. Got run over by a snowboarder on the couloir and had to use self arrest (for the first time ever). Glad to report it worked!

murraymcleodRoute Climbed: Class 1 from Tioga Pass Date Climbed: July 1976/July 1977  Sucess!


This is the first peak I ever climbed at the young age of 16. Got me started on a fairly long list of Sierra peaks bagged through the years. Climbed it again in 1977 (I think!) via the glacier/couloir route with newly purchased ice-axes (we sure looked cool hiking the JMT with those!). Climbed both times with Tim Stafford.

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.

2 feet of new snow made it tiring, but fresh.

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.
