dakineWarmup hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 20, 2012
Loved the last half of the hike, amazing upper ridge, spectacular views from the top over the desert haze. No wind, no clouds. Chipmunks on summit. Good warmup for White mtn peak hike a few days later.

bctahoe75Great Reward Easy Hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 15, 2013


What should have been an easy (4 hour - 10 mile roundtrip) hike turned out to be a 6 3/4 hour hike due to the bad back/knee of my friend who I had brought along to do this hike. The first 2 1/2 miles went well then the steeper climbing started to take its toll on his weak spots. In the end he made it and marveled at the amazing views and the stark contrast of the western slope with all the trees and lakes, and the eastern slope with the brown Nevada high desert below! No worries, after great pizza at JJ's in Reno, he was golfing the next day in Carson without much pain at all.

A true walk up. Hiking through the waterfalls and wildflowers was far more interesting than the dreary summit ridge. No need to repeat this hike.

Pretty waterfall on the way up, the trail was annoyingly long on the way down. Nice views of Tahoe on the summit. Done on my drive home from Shasta

Approached on the Jones Creek Trail. Began post holing. Snowshoes necessary from 1/4 mile east of Church's Pond. Crampons necessary the last several hundred feet. Had the top to meself, no signs in the snow of humans there for weeks or months. Lenticular clouds in the sky to the southeast. Glorious view!

I did the normal hike on the way up but then went over to the summit of Church Peak from the saddle between the two and then cut over to the trail on the west edge of the saddle on the way down. There was a faint use path in some places.

1:48 up, 26 min. on top, 25 min. to Church, 1:39 down, 4:19 total RT.

Took my kids, 5 and 6 along with me. They didn't care too much for the wind at the end but it was fun xp. Can't wait to do it again.

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.

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.
