StrazmatazLong Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 21, 2008
Decided to do a long day, started at the Tallac trailhead and headed to the peak then out to Aloha. From Aloha I headed south to Echo Summit and down a VERY steep trail to Fallen Leaf where some folks were nice enough to give me a ride back to my car...

From Glen Alpine, tough to follow the trail above 7500 feet due to snow cover so just went cross country up the slope to the summit. Gilmore Lake still frozen over. Trip report is HERE

brihuangSpring Creek, Bowl Direct  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 16, 2014

brihuang

Hiked Spring Creek Road. Approach through forest and manzanita to the foot of the bowl wasn't that bad. Wasn't able to gain the NE ridge due to low snow coverage. Hiked directly up bowl, super tiring but made it. Snowboard ride down through untracked soft corn snow was amazing. Hike from the foot of the bowl to car was horrendous.

WayneFryNorth Ridge via Cascade Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jan 25, 2014

WayneFry

Climbed this route with a team of seven from the Bayview trailhead. Steep and direct and has some fun class 2-3 scrambling along the way. To make it even more interesting we parked a few cars at Spring Creek road and descended the NE ridge after we reached the top. About a 7.5 mile round trip.

Seems like it might just be the classic Tahoe basin summit, easy route all on trail too!

bctahoe75Mt. Tallac Summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2013

I will start by saying this is a moderately difficult climb. Much tougher than Freel Peak, Jobs Sister, or Mt. Rose. However, the lower elevation does help, and it really isn't that tough if you take away a couple of steep sections and the last 1/4 mile to the summit. I did this hike with a group of 8 other people (6 women) and it took anywhere from 3 to 4.5 hours to reach the top for this group. The views along the way and at the summit are as good as any peak I have been on in the Tahoe Basin (which is 14 out of the 19 prominent peaks). The views back into the Desolation Wilderness are excellent, as you can see several peaks and many many lakes. If you want to pick one good hike in the Tahoe Basin...this one won't disappoint. The trailhead is just 1 mile off highway 89 directly opposite Baldwin Beach.

The first time I tried was the year before, and didn't make it because of weather issues. I made it the second time. My second SPS peak.

AceSierraTwo different hiking routes  Sucess!

AceSierra

Have done the Mt. Tallac trail as well as Glen Alpine. The road to Glen Alpine is kind of a joke. VERY popular hike, but the views from the top justify it. The Tallac trail is shorter, Glen Alpine more scenic.

Parked on 89 at the Mt. Tallac Trailhead entrance, and huffed over to Spring Creek. Had a miserable solo ascent up the NE Ridge. Wrong time of year for this route + low snow. Had to carefully pick my way up the mountain avoiding VERY thick brush and soft, spotty snow. Eventually made it off the dirt onto snow, but every step up sunk 50% back down the rest of the way. Summited and descended the long way around via Mt. Tallac Trail.
