jaytfishBeautiful Climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 7, 2012


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.

smurferfew times  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 7, 2011


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.

Not 100% sure of the date of my climb, but it was Summer 2008... got and early start and was done by lunch.

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.

Fantasic weather. Was planing to do Dicks Peak, however the PCT was still covered with snow all the way up to Dicks Pass. So took a detour to Mt. Tallac instead

Great corn skiing up high. Taters from the beginning of sweat hill on down. Road is getting pretty lean in terms of coverage- a lotta damn work pulling it back to the car.

Summitted with Travis Hesse. 3 hours.
