Never would have known about this trail without SP! Lots of bushwacking at the bottom of the actual slope, but cool route overall. Had lunch on church peak cause there was a mob on top of Rose.

ElGrecoSE ridge route - mixed bag  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2010

Made it to the summit and camped out overnight just below treeline. Beautiful, calm conditions all the way to the summit, mountain wind picked up during the night. Never found the "bridge" mentioned across Galena Creek, so ended up crossing on fallen logs. The willows (?) at the beginning of the trail (which was hidden in snow) are so infuriating that I would never do this climb again. The views of the lake from the summit are stunning, but they only reveal themselves at the very end - that side is hidden for most of the ascent. Freeway noise is present for a good part of the climb too.

Some parts of the climb were brown, but there were snowfields that you could link for most of the ascent. The snowshoes stayed on the pack - not really needed at any point, kicked steps throughout.

A good experience, but not one to repeat. No comparison to the breathtaking Tallac climb, for example.

Date Climbed: Sep 21, 2009
Went up the new trail for the first time with my friend and first-time hiker Chris Mortenson. Also, hiked in my Vibram Five Fingers for the first time and loved it! My feet were sore by the end, but not in a terrible way.

The new trail is really great. If you have not been up the new trail, give it a go!

One of my favorites to escape the heat of the Biggest Little City. Excellent trail run with plenty of water to splash in. Phebe's first proper mountain climb.

Bagged this one on a bright, sunny and cool day. It was a beautiful hike, but the hordes of slow moving hikers made for a long, slow and noisy ascent. If I come back to this peak it will be in the off season!

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 > easy. It was windy and cold at the top. I hiked this with my wife Anna.

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.

Lots of bushwhacking; not a lot of scrambling. Still, not a bad route (beats the trail).

Try it during the Winter (beats the trail and bush wacking) ;)

Was wearing shorts and a t-shirt by 8 am on a super hot april day. The route up is pretty straight forward, just stay slightly to the north of the main ridge. The snowboard down was awesome! Probably the last time this season to ride to the base of the climb as the snow is melting right quick.

Solo hike after first dusting of snow in Tahoe area. I was alone on the way up which was really nice. Got super cold and windy once I gained the ridge. Lots of hoar frost - made it look like a moonscape above treeline. Tons of people and dogs were heading up as I descended.
