trexkerryAfter Lyell  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2017
Maclure is fairly straightforward, the first half is more of a boulder field and the top half has a more class three climbing on solid rock, with a few narrowish ledges thrown in. Sierra Club register box is bolted on summit.

Liberator16Scramble up SE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2016
Tough scramble up from the majestic Lyell-Maclure col, had to rope on the way down because it was so steep. Nice SPS emblem register on top.

CWesselsLyell and Maclure Dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2016


Ascended SE ridge from the col after bagging Lyell. The rock was better than it looked from afar. I stayed on the top edge of the ridge for most of the scramble, and this was better (more enjoyable) than the class 2-3 ledges below.

jdmorrisMaclure & Lyell Dayhike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 10, 2015


I headed up the ridge from the col after climbing Lyell. Near the 'spiky' granite 'pinnacle' where the easy 2nd class ends, a use-trail forms and it even seemed to be well ducked for a while. Unfortunately, I couldn't resist the call of the ridge proper when the use-trail continued low and I don't know how the rest of the use-trail goes. The ridge proper was slightly loose but a fun and mellow scramble up and down.

RomainFrom Lyell-Maclure Col  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2015


Climbed the ridge from the Lyell-Maclure col. It took 45 minutes. This is actually a very nice scramble if you stay on the very crest of the ridge. It has nice exposure and nice moves. Difficulties are passed on the climber's right (North) side of the ridge. Most of the climb is class 2 with the occasional class 3 move on the higher reaches. Recommended if you have time after descending Lyell. The view of Yosemite is actually better from Maclure as you can see Half Dome.

Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2013


Dayhike of Lyell & Maclure from Tuolumne Meadows. Maclure's east ridge is a really fun climb with solid Class 3 if you stay directly on the ridge. Cool views of Mt. Lyell from the summit.

Not as loose as it might appear, nice views of the glacier both north and south. Long slog home, though... ;-)

Over from Lyell like most everyone. With Vitaliy and Max. Perfect conditions and views.

Found the route to be quite enjoyable and not as loose as expected. Inclement weather just held out for us.

Overnight trip, cold and snowy. I wish I brought my skiis to descend the thousands of feet of untracked power on the Lyell Glacier!

Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2009


Climbed the east ridge from the Lyell-Maclure col, with Samantha. Very broken, loose rock but not too steep. Took us about an hour each way from the col. Nice view of the summit plateau of Lyell, most of which we couldn't see from the Lyell glacier below.

TheRootsterNorthwest Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 20, 1992


I'm surprised there aren't any other TRs for this excellent route. Started in Yosemite Valley at Happy Isles, up past Merced Lake to Washburn Lake, then straight up the next creek, heading steeply ENE (beautiful cross-country segment past a hideaway waterfall and pool). Once up on top of the bench, it's more easy xc up to the pass NW of Maclure, where the climbing starts. 4th class on solid rock. I soloed it and was focused but not wigged out. A great climb. Worst part was on the hike back, returning down the upper trail (call it the "mule route") back to Merced Lake--like descending a cobblestone street for miles...hell on the knees. I'd suggest returning via Washburn Lake as well.

thexcatTuolomne Meadows (Lyell/Maclure Saddle)  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 12, 2008


Climbed Lyell and Maclure in one day. Attempted and failed same trip 1 month earlier. Had the whole mountain to myself. Left Tuolomne meadows at 3am, made it to Lyell-Maclure saddle by 8am, off both summits by 1pm and back to the car around 7pm. Got caught by a nasty thunder, hail and rain storm on the way down and hurt my ankle pretty bad so the return was slow.
