Pretty hike up via May Lake with friends Bruce and Brian. Great views from the top of most of the other peaks in Yosemite.

muajeethe "standard" route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 10, 2010


One of the best summit views in Yosemite.
Hiked up from the parking lot via May Lake. Didn't like the part where there was pavement; it was sort of boring. Left the used trail and had fun scrambling up to the summit, though it was extremely short (so short it was really nothing, but at least beat the pavement at the beginning of the hike >:) No summit register (none on Kaiser, either!)...

Hiked up from May Lake on day 3 of a 7 day trip on a bluebird day. The wildflowers in the creek drainage were incredible!

Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2010


I fell asleep on the final plateau before the summit. Woke up halfway down the mountain. Dad said we made it to the top and that the last bit was a scary scramble. I guess I'll have to take his word for it. No issues with the altitude.

Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2010


Another birthday spent in Tuolomne! Camped at May Lake with my wife, our 16 month old and my 73 year old father. All of us made it to the base of the final summit climb - I scrambled to the top with Sierra (16 mo old) asleep on my back. Perfect day.

96avs01S Ridge via Hoffmann Creek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2010


Followed the S Ridge via Hoffmann Creek drainage. A few class 3 moves to stay on/near the ridge crest in a couple places. Descent via May Lakes trail. Got to hike the Snow Flat road out as I couldn't hitchhike back to my vehicle/120, so guess I started too early as none of the other hikers had made it back to their cars yet.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2007


Climbed on the whim on the way out after a trip to Parsons and Vogelsang. Didn't realize there was a trail from May Lake, so hiked up the ridge by the parking area and then up the steep slabs above Hoffmann Creek. Not a bad route actually, but took the trail to May Lake down.

Came out to Yose for some dayhiking along Tioga road to acclimate the weekend before starting the John Muir Trail. After a morning around Gaylor lakes came over to Hoffmann in the afternoon. I loved the pile or rocks by the summit - make it easy or more difficult, your choice. I chose harder on the way up, easy on the way down. Wheee! Watch out for the evil marmots on the summit.

Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2009


From SW edge of May Lake, we ditched the trail and scrambled straight up toward the two unnamed(?) granite formations below the saddle. Mostly Class 2; though, I summited the left formation which involved some Class 3.

Mountain_girlSE scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2009


We scrambled up the SE slopes, first traversed some slabby rock and then approx. 200m of class 2-3 scrambling accompanied at all times by the amazing views of May and Tenaya Lake as well beautiful ranges! This was a much more rewarding and interesting route than the standard use trail up the S face. Fun route finding and no people, just marmots.

rhyangSouth slope .. sort of  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 1, 2009


Dayhiked from May Lake TH. Skipped the main trail initially and came up a gully in between the east face and approach face (as noted in Secor), looking for technical routes. The East Face (5.7) looked good.

Hoffmann's Thumb looked intriguing .. seems to be a class 4 route on the NE side, and the Regular Route (5.6) might be fun .. saw what looked like a rap anchor up top ..

Hiked up here on Saturday! Seemed longer / took longer than expected, but kicked back and enjoyed awesome weather. Several snowfields still, but none were treacherous. Overall pretty easy hike, with a fun scramble at the end.

Great views on Hoffmann, even if you don't make it all the way up. Can see most of the major ranges of the park from the top. Great place to eye up the next objective!
