Date Climbed: Sep 17, 2007


Twice in 3 days, during a family vacation at Stanford Sierra Camp: On Monday Sept 17, alone on a beautiful summer day, 3.5 hours roudtrip via the Cathedral Lake trail. Then on Thursday May 20th, with René Renteria, after a snowstorm that lingered into the day. We went up the Cathedral Lakes trail and went down the Glen Alpine / PCT trail, for a 5 hour roundtrip.

Climbed Tallac as a loop hike from Fallen Leaf Lake. Amazingly I did not see a single other hiker the entire day. Went up via Glen Alpine and down via Cathedral Lake.

Great day for a climb. It was very clear and the views seemed endless. The summit area was a happening place with a lot of people and squirrels.

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

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.

Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2007


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.

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.
