Date Climbed: Jun 27, 2009
Started at 430 am. Well worn trail up to plateau then fairly easy to follow use trail to summit. Large snowfields made descent easier. Observed mountain finches on the snow gleaning frozen insects carried up by the high winds.

Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2008


I was told the day we did it was the anniversary of John Muir looking up to Dana from below and refering to the area is the "Range of Light." Although we made good time it really felt like I was going in slow motion all the way up. It made my birthday the best I have had in a very long time.

Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2008


Nice, if steep, hike to the top. Best part was approaching the top and meeting a family on way down: Me: "How far to the top?" Them: "You're close." Me: "Define 'close'." Them: "One minute." Me: Right answer!" Great views of Mono Lake and eastern half of Yosemite NP.

Date Climbed: Aug 22, 2008


Amber and I were first up that day as far as we could tell. People started to filter on the the summit about 20 min after us. Almost everyone was Bay Area so we joked it was the new lunch hangout. Awesome view! Our first Sierra Peak!

Very cool. Did Boundary Peak in the early morning and headed off to do Mt. Dana in the evening. About reached my limit physically but the absolutely gorgeous view from the top of Dana made all the pain
worth it. This is definitely a must for Yosemite lovers.

My first ice climb, and it was a blast! Sad to see the snow melting out so quickly though...

Decided to scope it out for a trip in August... 36 hour round trip from Los Angeles. Ice is melting fast... Top is melted out and the whole couloir was very slushy. Soloed some of it. Screws used for psychological reasons... I don't think they would have held. Used one or two between pitches... Rock fall and mud flow on the left side. Tagged the summit. Great weather.

climbed with fbagni; conditions were more or less ice, but the entire couloir is melting out and I predict it will be gone in <10 years. We did it in 5+ pitches in ~3 hrs and afterward pulled ourselves up to the summit. A good day out, but had on the body when you are out of shape.

Quick hike up from the kiosk. Great early season conditioning hike with nary a soul in sight. Beautiful day with unbelievable views. Can't beat summer in the Sierra. Hopefully the first of many more this summer.

this was my 2nd time up Dana, this time with my girlfriend. Heading to the east side, we stopped at Tioga Pass to make the fun jaunt up Dana. We were early and enjoyed the summit to ourselves, before the gangs hit the trail. Spectacular views of the Sierra and Yosemite. Neat, although fragile, vegetation on the lower section.
