Very easy, intact class 3. Came all the way from from Sheperd's Pass trialhead in a day. 8500 ft of elevation gain..but I somehow did it with no problem. Made to within 50 ft. of the top. Hail and gnarly lightning scared us off quick.

A very nice climb, the slabs on either side of the rib had great friction. This is probably the easiest California class 3 route I've tried.

While camped at the small lake near Shepherd's Pass I scrambled up the bolder-filled ridge. A few loose ones gave me some scares. Great view of Williamson from the top.

Couldn't find a class 2 route up the northwest side. Descended the North Rib.Junction Peak in the morning, Tyndall in the afternoon, from camp at Shepherd pass. Fine view on top.

Matthew and I went out to dayhike Williamson and Tyndall. While he went to Williamson, I went after Tyndall and Versteeg. The traverse to Versteeg from Tyndall was far more difficult than I had expected. Trip Report

First peak on what would prove to be a long day. This is a very solid route, I can't imagine why people would rather climb the NW ridge. Decended to Wright lakes via south slope, an annoyingly loose talus hop that I will never do again.

Tagged this summit in 1 hour 2 minutes from the base of the rib on the hike out from Williamson Bowl. Fun class 3 slab/rock climbing.

Great route, not at all technical. It was my first 14'er, and when my tripmates told me it would be a long trek in, they were not kidding. Probably not the ideal first 14'er for someone brand new to backpacking. Mosquitoes at Anvil Camp were nasty!

Had a great time climbing up on the crest of the NW ridge (thinking it was the North Rib). As I neared the junction between the NW and W ridge it became difficult to stay on the crest. After a few moves exceeding class 3 I jumped off the ridge to the right and then scrambled up to the gendarme at the ridge junction. I went around this gendarme on the left and then jumped over to the righthand side of the ridge on the way up to the summit. On the way down I climbed on what I later realized was the North Rib.

Wow what a beautiful climb. The most rewarding to-date for me! Climbed with rgreene up the North Rib and found the friction on the slabs to be excellent. Lots of great holds on the Class three rock. Made the summit from the first lake in a casual 1.5 hr. and enjoyed the views from the top for 45 min. The views of SNP, Williamson, Whitney, and the Williamson Bowl will be etched in my mind forever. Unfortunately, so will the arduous climb up the Shepherds Pass trail! 6000+ ft. of elev. gain with 60 lbs pack and 10 hours...my quads will never forgive me!

Climbed the North Rib with blmcclain. Tyndall itself and the North Rib were excellent -- really enjoyed the peak, views of Williamson, sitting on the summit high point and wondering how much falling down the 2000' exposure would hurt! The North Rib climbing is great -- I stayed mostly off the slabs to the left and followed the rocky route on the right side of the rib. Pretty straightforward and enjoyable, even for a non-climber like myself. Now, Shepherd's Pass... what a monster hike in. How do people do that in 4 hours???

dayhiked from the trailhead. initially, wasn't sure about the friction on the slabs to the right of the rib, so alternated between the rib and the slabs in an attempt to find a good line. higher up, stayed mostly on the slabs - decent friction and holds for most part. gained the summit ridge at a prominent gendarme by some iffy moves (this gendarme is just north of the gendarme that is at the top of the north rib). the boulder formation defining the pinnacle is cool.

Northwest Ridge on the way up, North Rib down. My first 14er! :)

2nd time up, NW ridge was the first route. Although the North Rib can appear to be a bit more intimidating from the pass, it is the way to go. It is better rock, faster, safer, and more fun. The view of Williamson from the top is incredible

A leisurely and rather enjoyable day hike, Day 8 of the 2003 Sierra Challenge. I'd climbed Cardinal Mountain via Taboose Pass the day before (a register entry there had claimed that climb to be 8200+ ft of gain, which I guess sounds about right), so I was a bit concerned that I'd run out of energy today. Instead, I felt great, and reached Shepherd Pass in four hours... I relaxed for a couple of hours waiting for the less-acclimatized folks, and we summited in a couple of hours from the pass.



The North Rib is a great route--I stayed to the right on slabs with good friction and excellent holds the whole way up. It's an easy but fun climb. I followed the NW Ridge past almost all the good scrambling on the way back to check it out, before descending the North Face to meet the rib again. The ridge has some pretty fun third class, too.

The epic day hike!

This was the 8th day of the 2003 Sierra Challenge (the only day I participated in). 23 miles and 9,500' gain in a day was clearly not enough for me so in the dark I've managed to loose the trail after switchbacks to the Symmes Creek saddle. This added another couple of miles and ~1,000' of gain to my climb. Slog up the talus of Shepherd's Pass was awful. However, the climb after the pass was very enjoyable! The North Rib route offers some excellent (although, quite loose) sustained Class 3 for over 1K'. I avoided unstable mid-size boulders on the rib as much as I could by staying on the slabs to the right. They led to the summit ridge between two prominent gendarmes. From there only a short scramble to the top. Here I reunited with other Challenge participants: Matthew and Paul. While we were on the summit ridge, weather turned bad and it started snowing. We could also see (and hear) some massive thunderstorms near Whitney and Russell. Clouds and haze obscured the views. After spending 5 mins on the summit we rushed back down the ridge. After checking out the Northwest ridge, we decided to climb down the North Rib route instead.

Car-to-car time: 17h 45m



This was probably the hardest thing I've ever done!

It was a nice day-hike to the summit. I left the trailhead at 2:40 am, summitted at about 11:30 am, and got back to my car by 8 PM. I tried to descend via the Northwest Ridge, but got into terrain that was much more difficult than class 2 when bypassing the minaret, so I traversed across the north slabs to go back down the North Rib.

Climbed with engineer_charley (see his entry for more details). The 10 hour RT time is from our camp at the lake by Shepherd's pass. Brought up new notebook for summit box.
