Nice fall hike up the trail with lovely fall colors. We didn't see anyone on the way up but as we were descending we ran into a class of 50 sixth graders on a school outing.

Date Climbed: Oct 10, 2004



I think it would have made a whole lot difference (like even better) to go up there around sunset or sunrise instead of mid-day though.

We had lunch somewhere between/behind the rocks. All I remember is the wind, strong wind.

Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2003


Been to the top a few times and got some great pano shots back in 2003. Climbed it from both sides and going up the face is a nice work out! Lived there for 18 years so I had to climb it as much as possible.

Perfect Indian Summer day. Solo hike from the main trail. Probably passed 8-10 others along the way. Beautiful views of Lake Tahoe and Desolation. 4 hours roundtrip.

Nice easy day hike to take the girlfriend on. Great views of "Big Blue". I definitely have to come back with my skiis, the eastern chutes and bowls look awesome.

A nice way to escape (reduce) the crowds a bit on my first trip to Tahoe.

Kialv2descent the Cross  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 4, 2003


This time I dragged my snowboard up to the top of Mt. Tallac, with 2 of my skier friends who carried their skis with me, how nice of them. I had planned on descending the Sunny Side Bowl, but once on top the conditions allowed us a chance to descend the cross. I will never forget the steepness, and how humbled I felt when I dropped into this section of the mountain.

Another rehab outing for my broken ankle (16 weeks ago) and my second trip up Tallac. Nice cool September morning and I had the trail and the summit to myself on the way up. Passed over 50-75 people on the way down.
Pics are here

Date Climbed: Aug 28, 2006


Perfectly clear weather all day. Wind kicked in as soon as I climbed out of the bowl above Cathedral Lake, but died down when I was on the summit. Leisurely 7-hour round trip

Peak BaguetteMy first "real" summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 10, 2006

Peak Baguette

A kind stranger coaxed me into summiting (thank you, stranger!) I also met "1000 Peaks" at the summit. Way better than the view from my couch! Tallac inspired me to explore more peaks!

emilieGlen Alpine from Aloha Lake  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2006


Hiked up from Aloha Lake where I was camping w/a few friends. Made for a long day, but the views from the top are worth it! There were a few suspicious clouds in the sky, so when my hair started standing straight up, the ~20(!) people at the summit high-tailed it down in a stampede.

Another training climb with Vendulka - hauled 40-60 lbs packs... great weather and actually fun snow climb. I never get tired of the views from the summit.

Second trip to the top of Tallac. This time it was done by moonlight and headlamp. Great full moon hike on a warm summer night.

August 2003: It's an easy walk-up, but I really enjoyed it. The wildflowers were great and the views were equally good.
