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.

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!

Planned a Solo from May Lake. Turned around on the first day due to whiteout and high wind. Clear sky on the 13th.

Snow lower down meant a long walk in from the Tioga Road. After that crampons made short work of the main climb!

Luciano136Standard and NE ridge combo  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2008


Took the May Lake trail but didn't notice the faint use trail going to the bottom of the summit slabs. I opted to pick up the ridge instead as I thought it would be an easier route; turned out to be a class 3 scramble; quite exciting with the huge drop off on your right. Didn't expect too much but this was a very worthy peak! First on top for the day.

A Bit

The views were a little hazy and clouds were blasting by, but I didn't see a soul after leaving May Lake.

Little snowy after May Lake, there is a "sharp" left that we missed ... but very accessible peak. Great views and blue ice in the northside valley.

We had a pleasant short hike and then were chased off of the peak by rain, hail and lightning.

Climbed from valley floor up North dome gully. Washington column, Indian Rock, camped on Mt Watkins. Then up Hoffmann Sunday, and out.

Tioga road not open yet, so had it all to myself.

BrendanHickeyShort hike that seemed longer
Date Climbed: Aug 24, 2007


This hike was short in terms of distance, but went slowly because of the occasionally faint trail and frequent rock-hopping. Needed to use hands for the last 20 feet.

rangermattQuick afternoon climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2007


2 1/2 hours after leaving the apartment I was standing on top! Now that's what I call a quick one - was surprised at how quickly the summit arrived. Did both the shorter one above the lake then the true summit with the antennae.

k2linkA grand day out  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2007


Returned to climb Hoffman again, after realizing we'd climbed "Hoffman's Toe" (my term for the subsidiary summit above May Lake) two years ago. Had a great climb with spectacular views in all directions.

Needed an easy peak to hike up with my brother, who is not in peak bagging shape. Great views of the entire park from the top. A new register had been placed the previous day.

Went to the secondary summit first then up to the top. Gorgeous day, amazing views, tons of marmots (watch out for scat in your holds!). We were amused by the number of people in the parking lot who thought the little, scummy pond there was May Lake. We pointed them to the trailhead but most got in their cars and drove away. One lady asked, "Is there anything else to see here?" Since I hadn't been up yet, I didn't tell her about the incredible view up top.

MishaWelcome to Tuolumne  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 3, 2007


We scrambled up some unknown route(s) up Hoffmann on our first day in Tuolumne this year. Great place and absolutely incredible views. Mostly 2nd class with a few class 3-4 moves along the way. Our original plan was to follow the ridge line to Tuolumne Peak but a combination of gathering clouds and our laziness made us stop on the summit plateau and take a great nap! :)
Enjoy the pet marmot on the summit!
