TracyCathedral Lake Trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2008


Hiked this with my brother, Barton; my nephew, Spencer and my bro-in-law Michael Eschenberg. Still a lot of snow blocking a portion of the trail, but easy to get around.

I had been told by several people how hard Mt Tallac was, but I was surprised by the short time it took us to hike. We started at the Fallen Leaf trailhead. We got a late start and so it was hot by the time we got to the top at 11 am. Despite that, the views were fantastic.

Humped my skis up the northeast ridge and skied the northeast bowl. Windcrust conditions until the flat at 7,400 then some nice corn.

Went up & down the popular snowshoe/ski route on the east side. Man, the Desolation looks sexy in winter. There's a super nice boot pack up and skin tracks up there now.

requiemMosquitoes and marmot sex  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2007


hiked in from the north side of Fallen Leaf Lake, swatting mosquitoes just past Floating Island Lake where we turned and beelined for the summit, or where we thought it was. vexed a bit by the brush, we ascended the summit to find randy marmots and (ground squirrels?) bold enough to sit on your boot and take food from your hand.

Just a little dusting of snow on the ridge, but VERY cold. 40+ mph wind gust too, should've brought my balaclava.

A thoroughly enjoyable walk, as always. Some rather annoying rodents on the summit.

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.

Date Climbed: Jul 15, 2007


A great trail with beautiful views on the way up, and amazing views from the summit. Stayed pretty hot for the whole hike though, good thing we had plenty of water. Lots of people on the summit when we arrived around 1pm. I would recommend an earlier start for a summer hike to avoid the crowds and heat.
