um98Up Early  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 13, 2012
Great hike but it was good to have started at the trailhead at 7:00 and reached the summit around 10:00 as some thunderstorms developed very quickly right around noon and the rain followed soon after. The forecast was for a 30% chance of rain after 3pm, so remember that things can change up there. Great views from the top in the morning and remains a great overall hike. A couple very aggressive chipmunks around the summit :)

First time hiking the peak in five years, forgot how relentless the hike is from Cathedral Lake to the summit. The chipmunks on the summit are frigging nuts, like little kamikaze bombers taking shots at your lunch. There is a large marmot family on top now too. Disappointed that there is no summit register but the views are fantastic as usual.

Gorgeous climb. Very scenic. Shouldn't be underestimated, however. Plenty of water+hiking poles+good shoes+map=important. Trail is not well marked near the summit. It's a rocky climb, especially near the top where you scramble up large metamorphic rocks. Incredible view from the summit. Overall, a fun climb and a great time.

Started at the Glen Alpine trailhead- Gilmore Lake was still mostly frozen and the trail was mostly obscured by snowpack.

Pics and trip report here.

Almost no snow! Some icy spots but a mostly straightforward hike up to the summit. Beautiful warm weather and conditions for January. Bring on the snow though!

Up via the lakes. I have never seen so many mosquitoes in the Tahoe area before. Summit was fun and very relaxing, especially with the views. Came down the south face on an old trail.

I did Tallac 3 times in 2011 by a variety of routes. Twice by myself early in the season. The first time was particularly interesting as the snow was soft and deep.... rather than postholing i was pylon holing :). The last time was later in the year with a friend and the flowers were a nice addition - the mosquitoes were not.

Phil & I had a wonderful day hiking Tallac on Thursday! Hiking mid-week was great because there were not as many people out on the trail and on the peak. Annie, our very friendly mutt, joined us, greeted everyone she met, made many friends, and did quite well considering this was her first summit!

Nice hike and great views on E side of Crystal Range with quite a bit of snow still lingering from previous week's storm. Pretty windy but it only made it bearable; very hot when calm.

Date Climbed: Jul 23, 2011
Couldn't ask for a nicer day. I left the trailhead around 7:45. I had the summit to myself. I got off the main trail a couple of times as snow drifts obscured the direct route. Passed a lot of people on the way up on my decent.

partlysunnyAwesome View as Always!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 17, 2011
There were still many snowfields to hike through, including one dangerous one near the top of this ridge (on the north facing side of course). The footsteps were deep, but it was quite scary. On the way down, we ended up walking on the boulders to get past that one snowfield. Otherwise, the view from the top is always spectacular! Oh and bring your bug spray and anti itch stick! The mosquitoes were relentless on the way up and back down.
