Route Climbed: Variation of Clyde Variation Date Climbed: August 1999
My fiance Mary Alice Tackett and I climbed a variation between the SE Glacier route and the Clyde variation. A great view from the summit, and I even called my mom from the top! Then back to Lake Ediza for a day of drinking champagne!
Route Climbed: John Muir Route; Ritter/Banner Saddle Date Climbed: August, 2000
My 2 good friends summited Banner while I was on Ritter. I could see them as tiny specks on top of Banner and heard my name shouted across a 1000 meter abyss between us. What a treat for a solo climber high in the Sierra!
Route Climbed: SE Glacier Date Climbed: August 25, 2001
This mountain is a real alpine experience...in California. As this was a light snow year, the ice was pretty hard, bergschrund open and amazing. Smoke from a forest fire killed some views to the south and of the Clark Range.
