A nice day hike up from Lake Tahoe. The views from the top are awesome with the whole desolation wilderness to the west and Lake Tahoe to the east. The summit pyramid is a nice little scramble. This looks like it would be great in the winter.

Great hike all around. Only problem was all the scree to hike on but well worth it. Great view of Tahoe and Desolation Wilderness up top.

A short hike from Gilmore Lake, I really enjoyed the view from the top. I would have lingered for hours if it wasn't for the fifteen or so Golden-Mantled Ground Squirrels trying to crawl up my legs to eat my food!

I hiked up it again with my husband and friend Paul, via the Cathedral Lake Trail in November of 2005. There was still snow from the previous winter!

One more time...May 12, 2007

My buddy Brad and I did this as a warmup to Shasta. We climbed the large hidden gully directly east of the summit, then climbed the East ridge that joins with the south slope. We glisaded the chute that is south of the East Ridge.

Caught the sunrise on Lake Tahoe from the top with my brother as part of a short backpacking trip.

Buddy trip in Desolation with a side trip to Tallac. Crowded summit, even saw kids wearing helmets..and they only took the main trail. No tents or bug nets, slept out in the open and was not harassed by bugs...it was perfect.

Amazing view from top, well worth the couple hours it took to summit. Had some difficulties finding the route as there are no paths leading to it. Beware of loose rocks.

Basic trail to near the top, Gilmore Lk was beautiful. Lost the trail in the snow above Gilmore but XC was easy, no route finding difficulty. Rescued a Louisiana resident near the top who had panicked due to the snow. Splendid views of Tahoe

Followed Tallac trail to Cathedral bowl. Climbed the talus ridge on the north side of bowl, staying above large snowfield. After the bowl, meandered my way through a few snowfields trying to follow the trail, then made for the ridge to get clear of snow. Easy going to the summit from there.

Have actually raced up and down this mountain with my old Alaska climbing partner while our wifes ran the Lake Tahoe Marathon.

We used to live in Incline Village in the 1990's and took guests to the summit often. Skied it for the first time just this past March, 2005 when on a road trip through the area. Never seen so much damn powder, could barely keep my tips up on ascent. That was work! As always, worth the view though. I highly recommend this ski route. Cheers!

I actually climb one of the chutes (couloirs) that go up from the cirque - a lot of fun with all this snow. Awesome weather and NO people. Great day

It was a awesome day. No wind, very little clouds and a lot of sun. Abi and I started at 5:30 in the morining at reached the summit at 8:00. The views where so great that we sat on the summit for 3 hours until the summit got a little crowded.

Kind of embarassed about logging such a small peak but might as well. Tahoe is an awsome place.

This was the first peak I ever bagged. The day was nice and warm with hardly any wind. The views where awsome. I have been addicted to the mountains ever since.

Always in sight and practically sitting in my backyard in South Lake Tahoe, I used to regularly hike this peak, and downhill skied it one time in the winter. Its easy access attracts throngs of visitors, and it is not uncommon to have two dozen hikers buzzing around the summit. The views are worth it though.

David Deffner and I climbed Mount Tallac via the Glen Alpine trail, on a totally beautiful and clear summer day. This was our first "training" hike together before our Kilimanjaro trek in July.
