Date Climbed: Aug 4, 2007


As Rocketsredglare said, mmmmmm.....sure was a tasty rib especially for my first full course 14er. Shepards pass and Tyndall didnt stand a chance. I really enjoyed the accelerated heartbeat as table sized boulders were dislodged from under our feet going up the rib. Oh ya....has anyone seen my wet sandwich???

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2007


I think the fact that I was smack talking this mountain once I saw how "teeny" it was from Shepherd's Pass was my tragic flaw. She took me and slapped me hard in the face, that Tyndall. Took the Northwest Ridge to the summit ridge and didn't see a way to scoot over to the true summit. Did I miss some sort of a turn or hidden escalator or something? What's this mystical notch and gendarme everyone keeps referring to cause I didn't see sh!t.

After a hot 7 hours in the kitchen preparing for our meal my buddy Scott and I poured sauce all over that rib and ate it like Fred Flintstone!

Climbed Williamson the day before. This peak reminds me of Mt Russell. Great views, great peak.

Did Mt. Russell the day before, camping near Wallace Lake. Around 12 miles to Shepherds Pass, then a 4 hr. roundtrip up the N. Rib and down to a camp at Mahogany Flats. A long day - 21 miles.

Tyndall's been on the list for a long time! Still need to do Russell, but this one sure let me know how out of shape I am! Beautiful weather, and only a few snow patches on the trail up to the pass. N. Rib free of snow until the top, where a little crafty work got me past it and on to the summit ridge. Yeah!

To me, this hike seemed never ending, but so worth while once I reached the summit. This is a must do and even more worth it if you get Williamson in on the same trip.

Fourth 14er. The North Rib was great fun, but we took a wrong turn near the top and made it more difficult than it should have been.

Matt KarrMt Tyndall NORTH RIB with 15 year old son  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 2, 2006

Matt Karr

My son Daniel age 15, my brother Rob and myself (Matt age 50) climbed the North Rib on Aug 2, 2006 leaving our camp above Sheperds pass at 7:30 AM and standing at the summit at 1:30PM.
For a father, this was a bit scary in snowy/icy spots, where the class 3 seemed exposed....but the risks were certainly worth the reward at the top!
See our trip report! Matt Karr

Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2006


If Tyndall had more than ribs and a spine I'd kick it in the balls! Under estimated the summit and the time. Got to the top but about 500 feet away from the actual 'summit'. After getting a little off route on the rib and making my own 5.5 route to the top and then having to figure out how to get the F off the thing at 4:30 in the afternoon I missed the summit. Will I go back? Rough call right now, still a little hurt that it played so hard to get with me. If I do go back I'll wine and dine it over two days instead of one and then get it on for sure!

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2006


4th of July hike from Shepherd Pass. Raced up the rocks to the top as best I could and back down but didn't beat the mild hailstorm and later, light rain. What a lot of *&(&%)()& rocks! Shredded my fingertips. Best view: Looking at Mt. Keith. Glad I did Williamson the day before, as it was shrouded in clouds when I viewed it from Tyndall's summit.

Took the west slope to the top ridge with Quadaxial. The ridge can be tricky for the unprepared. I'd reccommend taking the North rib and having a much closer shot at the summit. I Made it as far as anyone could in those conditions but no cigar so, I'll be returning to this one for an 'official' summit.

hkutukFirst time at 14K  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 18, 2006


I have been wanting to see the Sierra and Paul and Keith were planning on spending a week there climbing their remaining 14ers. I joined them for Mt Tyndall, which supposedly has the worst approach among all 14ers. It was long up and down in the heat, and the trail just wanders back and forth with looong switchbacks, quite the contrast to typical N. Cascades trails. Stayed at Anvil Camp and climbed the North Rib the next day. The top of the rib was still under snow forcing us to use crampons.
Splendid views from the summit, whish I knew what I was looking at. Ran out of food coming down and felt like crap. I dedicated my first Sierra climb on Father's Day to my late father. I hope to come back for more technical climbs in the Sierra.
