With Alfred. A great day in the mountains, with massive cold gusts blasting their way uphill, while we toiled in the couloir.

Went up Dana Couloir without company and was the first up top that day-- certainly beat sharing it with the crowds going up as I went down.

Pretty straight forward hike but the altitude beat me down a bit. Calm on the summit but pretty windy and cold on the approach. Super clear day. Views were outstanding.

Excellent views from the summit especially of Mono Lake. Continued on to peak 12565 and Mt Gibbs and looped back to the Mono Pass trailhead.

Cold and windy with about two dozen snowflakes. The clouds only enhanced the views. The light over Mono Lake was awe inspiring. Mono Lake was one of Mom's favorite places. Although she left us on 8/18/2005, I was warmed by her company.

Climbed solo. The couloir was mostly firm snow with a couple of hundred feet of ice, which could be easily bypassed to the right. I stayed off the ice and climbed the snow. Enjoyed the beautiful weather and the solitude very much!

Climbed in varied conditions on a beautiful day, with my partners and his friend (a very experienced mountain guide). It was not full-ice, making the climbing interesting however protection on the couloir difficult. We used right side rock for added protection to complement ice screws and had to use many types of belay especially the higher we went. It was my first ice climb, I Iearnt sooo much and it was a really enjoyable climb despite me having altitude sickness (came from sea level the night before).

The meadows full of wildflowers at the lower elevations were beautiful on this clear morning. Made the summit after 1hr and 25 minutes, spent 15 minutes enjoying the amazing views in all directions from the top, and took 1hr and 10 minutes to get down the steep trail. A very pleasant experience for my first thirteener and first ascent of a peak on the crest of the sierra in its more dramatic central and southern realms. Looking forward to bigger and higher challenges to the south.

Good conditions in the couloir. Passed the bergschrund on the left without much fuss. Set pickets a couple times at rest stops, but as long as we were climbing, we had good self-belay. We used 2 tools for the experience, but it could have been climbed with a single alpine axe and good french technique.



See also the description from rhyang who climbed 2 days later. The only surprise was the trudge through the slush on the ridge above the couloir (not exactly a triumphant finish to the route).



Definitely would recommend this as a nice introduction to alpine ice. Would be good prep for someone interested in a future Cascade glacier trip.

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.
