TonelocWindy and cold  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 17, 2015


Very windy and cold, three inches of snow on summit. Made for a wonderful break from the long hot summer. Also, encouraging for the drought conditions in Nevada and California.

Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2015
Linked Mt. Rose, Mt. Houghton via East Ridge, and Relay Peak yesterday. Great day, mostly quite easy class 1, but with some fun class 2-3 scrambling right in the middle of the day to mix things up. A nice way to get some decent mileage with fantastic views throughout.

trexkerry5 peak day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 20, 2015
Fun day of hiking, from Mt. Rose summit took the Relay Road, cross country from due south of Tamarack, up and over the peak, back down to Relay Road, up to Relay Peak where I scrambled up the last 300 feet rather than walking the road, then took the new trail to Mt. Houghton, then cross country down from Houghton to the saddle with Mt. Rose, picked up the Mt. Rose trail here, took that until it was time for the easy cross country to Church Peak, then rejoined the Mt. Rose trail to the summit of Mt. Rose. Took the Mt. Rose trail all the way back down. TR will be posted HERE.

Date Climbed: Jul 25, 2015


Can't believe the number of people on this scenic walkup. I quit counting at about 189 people on the trail once I got back to the waterfall.

Go early and maybe you'll have the summit to yourself. Or don't go on a summer weekend

Enjoyable class 1 hike, immense payoff with riparian meadows in full bloom and spectacular views of the Lake Tahoe region.

calebEOCLabor Day Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 31, 2014


Long drive down from Tri Cities for this fairly easy hike, but it was nice seeing Lake Tahoe and Virginia City. Lots of people on the trails, and tons of tourists in the region in general. Nice views, but smoke from a range fire had things hazed up a bit. This was my wife's highest summit to date.

Date Climbed: Jul 6, 2014


Started at 7:30, summitted at 9:30; it was quite toasty at that point; gave out gatorade and water to less prepared hikers on the way down. Traversed over to Church Peak as a bonus.

Route Climbed: Mt. Rose Summit Trail Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2009 Sucess!
This hike would make a good early season warm up because of the excellent views. I really have no clue why it's rated "strenuous" by the park service; it's basically flat until the trail heads up the SW gully and only then becomes moderate. It was windy and cold at the top. I hiked this with my wife Anna.

Route Climbed: East Face Date Climbed: March 14, 2005 Success!
We expected a winter climb that would feel like spring, and got that, until we reached ~10K ft., when the temperature dropped like a brick. The route's false summits, mixed snow conditions, and wind-chill made the climb all the more exciting. Climbed with balajisv.

Enjoyed a nice, clear day and fun hike with a friend. A little icy in spots- poles helped. Great 360 views of both Tahoe and the Great Basin at the summit.

Date Climbed: May 15, 2014


We caught this one on our way to do Mt. Shasta. Nice walk in the woods to stretch the legs during the 12 hour drive from Salt Lake City, UT to Mt. Shasta, CA. Windy on top--what's new. IVD

JosiahVia Church's Pond  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 10, 2014
First summit of Mt. Rose. Approached from Church's pond. Found a use trail on the ridge behind the pond that went to Contact pass but had trouble following it because of patchy snow. Set out cross-country from Contact pass to the saddle between Church and Mt. Rose, then up the main trail to the summit. Returned via use trail on the east side of Mt. Rose then cutting across to Contact Pass. This turned out to be surprisingly steep - not sure I'd recommend it to others while there's still snow on the ground.
