nickLSE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 3, 2009


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.

PeanutVirbram Five Fingers at the Top  Sucess!
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.

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

wmollandRiding down the east face  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2009


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.

Date Climbed: Oct 5, 2008


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.

Date Climbed: Sep 27, 2008


A very busy day on the trail due to the fact that the Nevada Wilderness Conservation Society (or something to that effect) had carried three pony kegs to the summit, where they were selling beer. Apparently it's an annual event. Unfortunately, I only had a dollar, which I didn't feel was a fair "donation" for a beer - most people were paying $4-5. Oh well, entertaining nonetheless.
