ThePeteGreat Day Trip  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2010


Wonderful views, easy up and back, and scramble if you like. Maybe 10-15mph winds at the top. Amazing weather, too. Very worth it for how easy it is.

Date Climbed: Dec 25, 2011


Christmas Day- Me and Alan set out from Jones Creek TH at 4am, pitched tent in the meadow behind Church's Pond and kept going after sunrise. Not a bad route if you LOVE to bushwack for 14 hours over patchy snow.

Took just under two and a half hours to ascend the roughly 4700 feet from the Galena Creek trailhead to the summit via Church pond. Beautiful day, albeit a bit breezy.

Started at the turnout by the snow plow garage below Sky Tavern (7500'), SE ridge route. My first time by this route. Ascended in 2:15, total 4:00. Beautiful day, Tahoe was shimmering in the sun. 20F and 55mph wind at the summit.

Tried twice before but too much snow. Made it up this time from the ski resort parking lot -- snowshoes & crampons. Had the whole peak to myself for the day.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2011


Wally came up from Phoenix and we hiked up Mt. Rose. Had been waiting for enough snow to melt to make an ascent...we still spent about 1/3 of the hike in snow fields. Yet another beautiful day in the Lake Tahoe Basin area. Ran into "Bob" age 91, still hiking...onward, upward. Amazing.

RedwicFourth NV CoHP In Three Days  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 12, 2011


After successfully summiting Boundary Peak, Mount Grant, and Mount Davidson the previous two days, we had enough time in the morning hours to hike to the summit of Mount Rose before needing to fly back to Washington. Great trail, and great views from the summit area. I hiked over to nearby Church Peak, afterwards.

partlysunnyKind of Tough...But Awesome Views!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 6, 2011
Just a few snowfields in the shade before the waterfall in the meadows area. Took me 2 hours and 20 mins to reach the top and then 2 hours on the button to hike down. It gets tough after the meadows when you turn the corner and hike straight up. The switchbacks after that gives you a bit of a rest, but still breathing hard!

I go up every other year in the summer. Good times! I think I've found a reliable ski partner this year, so I'll be able to ski it this winter.

PSchubertSummer and Winter  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2007


Summited twice:
Summer of '07 was easy, 2 hours to the summit in a tee shirt and trail running shoes.
Winter '08 was 10hrs of snowshoeing round trip and bitter cold, but I loved every minute of it. This is the trip that shifted my view of the mountains from casual enjoyment to seeking an active challenge.

Third time up, snowshoe trip along with Church Peak and Mount Snowflower. Very cloudy until about noon, then tons of sun. Very enjoyable day.

Second trip January 22, 2011:
Unplanned events forced me down the mountain before midday and missed out on the other objective (Snowflower) for the afternoon. Did the full trip the next day.

First trip January 21, 2007:
Tried to hike this directly from the highpoint of 431 on Jan 20, but deep snow and slow going forced us to turn back before we got too far. I was determined to do this in January, so went back the next day and started 300 feet lower. With less traversing it was much easier, and made an enjoyable day of it.

Mt. Rose Trail, 4th time, second by trail/without much snow. The moon was nearly full so we hardly used lights, even though the clouds were building. 4.5 hours with 1 on top.

Up the new tourist trail with the usual 40mph wind at the top.
(With the usual crowd of horribly underdressed-for-the-conditions folks on the ridge)
