Ashburtbeautiful hike  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2007


Hiked from the Glen Alpine Trailhead. Camped at Gilmore Lake and hiked to the summit the next morning. Beautiful view, little hazy and windy with lots of little critters running around.

Katy Yfirst climb of the season  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2007

Katy Y

A few notes: (1) LOTS of exposed areas; wear good sun protection; (2) despite elevation, it was pretty darn warm; (3) was expecting more scree-type conditions; just lots and lots of rocks in every size. But a great day had by all.

Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2007


Climbed Tallac at the tail end of a solo 20+ mile Jacks->Dicks->Tallac talus traverse from Glen Alpine. It was a gorgeous day in every respect. There was an unabashedly curious marmot on the summit that kept me company.

a good climb up and solid ski down. lots of freshies. the summit brought whiteout conditions making for a bit more of an interesting time skiing the bowl. only three other folks on the entire mountain at the time. a great day.

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.

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.

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
