darinchadwickRoute Climbed: Northwest Ridge Date Climbed: May 2001  Sucess!


Slept below anvil camp, then backpacked up to Shepard pass. Set up camp in the afternoon, scoped Tyndall and decided for a quick try. Hence, we were, once again, alone on the summit, seeing as it was late in the day.

TonyMRoute Climbed: North Rib Date Climbed: May 28th, 2001  Sucess!
North Rib with Nick Clyma. There was still quite a lot of snow on the North Face of Tyndall in late May; enough that two skiers skied down the North Rib route. This route is an easy, non-technical way to reach the top. An ice axe and crampons are necessary early in the year however given the exposure of a 1500 foot, 45 degree angled face. A slip from the upper reaches of the North Rib would ruin your day.

The views from the top were outstanding. If your bagging all the 14K foot peaks in CA., be sure to do Williamson on the same trip. Hiking up and down Shepherd's Pass is a long and arduous affair.

ElwoodRoute Climbed: North Rib Date Climbed: July 95  Sucess!


The hardest part of this climb was getting over Shepherd Pass in the heat of July, & surviving a mosquito infested night at Anvil Camp. On day-2, after reaching the pass, we put our packs down at what looked like a fair campsite & proceeded to climb Tyndall. This was a much more direct shot at the summit than the standard Northwest Ridge route. From the top we were able to get a good look at our next objective the following day, Mt. Williamson!

GuiltyRoute Climbed: NW FAce, south of the NW rib route Date Climbed: July 15, 2001  Sucess!


Started from Anvil Camp then to the summit of Mount Williamson, then cross the bowl to the base of Tyndall. I ascended up a no-name chute (class 4/5), adventually running into the NW Rib Route. I reached the summit around 6:05 pm. Back in Anvil Camp at 8:35 pm. Partial cloudy day. No snow on the NW Face. Rock was solid with many hand holds.

JoshRoute Climbed: Northwest Ridge (ascent), North Rib (descent) Date Climbed: July 11, 2001  Sucess!


Solo, single-day, car-to-car ascent of both Williamson and Tyndall. This is loooong day. It took me 15.5 hours to do the trek, and I was cruising at a pretty good pace the whole time. By my estimates, the round trip is approximately 30 miles with 12,000 - 14,000 ft of elevation gain, depending on what level of detail you choose to look at (yeah, yeah, don't get fractal on me).

I started at my car at 3:30am. Groggy and tired from the previous day's Muir-Whitney-Russell traverse, I made my way up to Shepherds Pass. From the Pass, I continued west to the Northwest Ridge of Tyndall. Up that, then down Tyndall's Class 3 North Rib (a.k.a. Sierra Crest Rib). A hellish traverse across Williamson Bowl was next, then up eternal talus slopes and Class 3 rock to the summit of Williamson. Back to the car at 7pm.
