On solo trip met Ryan & Dave from UCSB in the bowl & we climbed together. Father & son team Joel & Brody caught up on route & we all summitted together. Great day!

Yep, no need to do this one again. Ascended via 'Long Twisting Rib. Just didn't live up to my expectations (sorry, LTR fans.) I thought the more memorable section was the downclimb from the West Horn. One more 14er ticked off.

Climbed Long Twisting Rib to West Horn then descended West Face. My favorite part? None of it. Lost camera, I was sick, returned to camp in the dark. UGH! No need to climb this bitch again!

Great climb from camp above Shepherd Pass. I was up there on a solo trip, but teamed up in the morning with Bob, Tim, and Taylor and had a great time. We had a long siesta on the summit with no wind and great views. 3.5hrs to the summit, 3hrs back to the tent. The climbing day could not have been better and I made new friends.

Date Climbed: Jun 25, 2011


Camped at the first saddle before the 500' of elevation gain loss. Carried camping gear all the way to base of black stain the next day; summitted at 4:40p. An ice axe was necessary to climb the chute, but probably won't be in another week with warm temps. Snow in the bowl helped enourmously -- we crossed it in less than an hour each way.

Date Climbed: Apr 29, 2011


This mountain makes you earn the summit like nothing else. After a grueling first day to our camp at 9500 and the Bairs creek headwall to 13600, I was dead. But a short rest and some pepperoni stick gave me the extra juice I needed. We climbed up some snow filled chutes (~45 degrees, it felt like 55 but I'm new at this...) to the east of the summit. The wind was howling once we topped out of the chute. The last hundred feat to the true summit I thought I was going to get blown over (be it by wind, dizziness or headache). All three of us made it and one skied back while we glissaded (sort of.). Great trip!

Epic attempt from Anvil Camp to West Face of Williamson with Vlad, Hakan, and Cenk. Only Vlad made it to the summit. He almost climbed West Horn too, and summited Tyndall the next day.

One of my first Sierra day hikes-bit of a long day, and boulder field sucked, but one of my more memorable experiences. Short, but cool semi chimney section on the way up to summit. Williamson is a beast

Super long hike to Shepherd pass. I thought I was in the wrong pass till I finally saw Tyndall on the other side. Was planning to do Tyndall that same day but got to the pass at 6:00pm which was too late at that point

Did Williamson via West Face the following day. Another day that took much longer than expected. Took 2:00 just to get to the base of the mountain from the lake near Shepherd Pass. Wanted to do Tyndall along with Williamson the same day but the energy spent on Williamson alone was too much. Failed Tyndall twice before I even began. Maybe another day with more realistic goals...

Summited via the west face from Shepards Pass. Shepards pass was a great campsite for the one night I was there. This was a lot longer and tougher than I thought it would be. I had some route finding problems in the bowl and did not have enough time to climb Tyndall. I'll be back.
