DeltakypInspirational beginnings  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2002


Climbed with a few friends after moving to the area. Hiked via Glen Alpine trail after camping there, peaceful hike with great views and served as a stepping stone to other great peaks: Pyramid, Lassen, Shasta, Whitney.

WMLunconventional assault, fail
Date Climbed: Feb 27, 2009


We attempted to climb up the cross, and were not so successful. Attempted an eastside chute, and not so successful again. Made another attempt near the cross, and yet again were foiled by poor snow conditions. Happens.

hgrapidHot and crowded  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 18, 2009


This hike was very easy. Of course, I am in good shape at this point in the season. It was quite hot; and I went through all my water. It was 10 miles round trip from the car. The trail is probably over 9.6 miles round trip from the Tallac Trailhead. It was 101 in Reno, so Tallac was still hot. There was a group of 30 people from Sacramento that hiked that day, and the summit was very crowded. Overall, a beautiful place, but better with more solitude.

adventuretacticalMt. Tallac East rock columns  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 19, 1996


Partner and I climbed (trad style), the East rock columns of Tallac, via the large snow slope that runs to the base of the Tallac Trailhead on the North-East side of the mountain.

Fantastic rock of at least 2 pitches!
Can be done alpine style, trad style or mixed if conditions are right for ice..etc!

Dayhike from Glen Alpine TH. Continued on to Dicks Pk, Jacks Pk and then Pyramid Pk before returning to the car which made for a very long day in a great area which I hadn't visited yet.
Some Photos.

Mt. Tallac trail up (2 hours) and down (1,5 hours). Still plenty of snow above Cathedral Lake. Only met two people the whole day, which was a nice change of pace from Half Dome.

fedakEarly season main trail  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2009


This started on the main trail, but sort of devolved into a talus scramble as much of the high plateau was still snowbound. Just me and the marmots on the summit.

Pics here.

My ten year old daughter's first time up - we all skied from the summit to the end of the road. Great times and a really warm day.

Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2008


Quite possibly one of the most beautiful hikes I've been on recently...continual views of Lake Tahoe and the basin make this a rewarding hike.

Date Climbed: Dec 10, 2008


Another beautiful December dayhike as I keep waiting for the snow to fall. The lakes were frozen and there was some snow and ice on the trail but surely not enough to ski.

ScottyPA bit of wind!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 4, 2008


Been up here many times but this one was epic! 30-40mph winds were hitting the lake but I was training for Orizaba so I went for it. Great climb until I crested the switchbacks and was almost blown off my feet by the wind! I ended up dropping down the east side and coming up through the last chute to avoid the wind. Snow, sleet and hail follwed me all the way to the car! I love the mountains!!

I have climbed Tallac via the Glen Alpine Trail many times and it is one of favorite hikes. This trail is much nice than the Tallac Trail. You will never get tired of the awesome views from the top.

Date Climbed: Jun 21, 1987


Climbed Tallac many times. In summer, fall, spring, and winter. The view never gets old. Great skiing down the cross and in north bowl. Spent the night on the summit in 1994 and watched the best sunrise of my life.

Stu BrandelTahoe's Best  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2008

Stu Brandel

My 11 year old son and I made this beautiful hike - which was made harder than it looked by the trail being so often made up of round golf ball size rocks that strain your brakes going down. We went up the back way up the talus near the top rather than follow the trail around. Overall, a treat for the eyes and a kicking for the butt.

Date Climbed: Aug 14, 2008


I took the trip advice to "peel" off the trail at the clearing and bushwack 100 yds toward the SE chutes. It was not bad at all, i ended up climbing the ridge between the scree cirque and the actual chutes. Excellent class 3 and some wonderful moderate class 4 climbing.
