A very windy hike in some places. Great views of Desolation Wilderness.

Followed Tallac trail to Cathedral bowl. Climbed the talus ridge on the north side of bowl, staying above large snowfield. After the bowl, meandered my way through a few snowfields trying to follow the trail, then made for the ridge to get clear of snow. Easy going to the summit from there.

Have actually raced up and down this mountain with my old Alaska climbing partner while our wifes ran the Lake Tahoe Marathon.



We used to live in Incline Village in the 1990's and took guests to the summit often. Skied it for the first time just this past March, 2005 when on a road trip through the area. Never seen so much damn powder, could barely keep my tips up on ascent. That was work! As always, worth the view though. I highly recommend this ski route. Cheers!

I actually climb one of the chutes (couloirs) that go up from the cirque - a lot of fun with all this snow. Awesome weather and NO people. Great day

It was a awesome day. No wind, very little clouds and a lot of sun. Abi and I started at 5:30 in the morining at reached the summit at 8:00. The views where so great that we sat on the summit for 3 hours until the summit got a little crowded.

Kind of embarassed about logging such a small peak but might as well. Tahoe is an awsome place.

This was the first peak I ever bagged. The day was nice and warm with hardly any wind. The views where awsome. I have been addicted to the mountains ever since.

Always in sight and practically sitting in my backyard in South Lake Tahoe, I used to regularly hike this peak, and downhill skied it one time in the winter. Its easy access attracts throngs of visitors, and it is not uncommon to have two dozen hikers buzzing around the summit. The views are worth it though.

David Deffner and I climbed Mount Tallac via the Glen Alpine trail, on a totally beautiful and clear summer day. This was our first "training" hike together before our Kilimanjaro trek in July.

Warmup for Russell. Mostly Class 2 talus & bush with some fun class 3 near the top of the chutes, but once the chutes top out, you've still got 600 vertical feet left to go. A good summer alternative to the packed trail.

I hiked up Cathedral Lake Trail and tagged the top of Tallac on the way to Dick's Peak and Jack's Peak. Of note, the mosquitoes were totally insane. Fucking crazy. I had never seen any there, so I neglected to take repellent. If you go in June or July, take some mosquito repellent or become an unhappy blood donor.



Also of note, I had to deviate from the usual trail a couple of times to go around snowfields. Not that big of a deal.



I went down the Glen Alpine Trail on they way to Dick's Pass and came back up it on the way back to my car. I managed to get off trail a couple of times on the way up the Glen Alpine Trail. Seems I was in the mood to follow those red herrings that look like trails but peter out and leave you wondering where the hell the trail went.

A nice two hour stroll to the top. A little warm above the tree line. Excellent views of the Tahoe Basin, Desolation Wilderness, and Fallen Leaf Lake.

Traversed from Dicks Peak, returning via the beautiful valley just west of Tallac (Tallac Lake, Snow Lake, etc). The hike along that ridge is kind of loose and sloggy in a couple of places, but the views at the top are great.
