utclimberPalisade Traverse  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 26, 2017
Did the Palisade traverse from Thunderbolt to Sill as a day hike from South Lake. Enjoyed the scrambling from the U-notch to the summit.

Nice 4th class / easy 5th arête. Then we spent the night on the ridge between Sill and Polemonium, a memorable night in the High Sierra.

Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2015


A really nice day of climbing with Dan Kruger to complete the California's 14 'ers. A little issue finding the route (that's what I get for looking at a guide book). Some rhime ice plastered on the route from the U-Notch.

Great day, except for catching a falling rock on the jaw. Left a little blood on summit. Sometimes, the mountain wins.

cabFrom North Palisade  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 7, 2013


A long day with Mark starting from South Lake, climbing North Palisade, traversing to Polemonium, then back to our bivy at Thunderbolt Pass. Glad to get the CA 14ers done, but a tough day thinking about our friend Pat Hadley who was supposed to join us on this trip.

Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2013


Great dayhike! Very enjoyable pace, stunning landscape and fun scramble. Chute up to u-notch was a bit tedious but intuitive and easy. Made for a really pleasant day about 15 hrs car-to-car and that was taking it easy. Highly recommended!

Part of the Palisade Traverse with a great group, was getting cool and late in the day so not too long on top, but love the view.

First climbed in August 2008 when poor snow/ice made a trip up the back of the U-Notch most feasible. Climbed Polemonium as a side trip after the North Palisade.

Second trip was early September 2012 when poor weather forced us to abort a Palisade Traverse starting from Sill (following a rough but planned bivy at the U-Notch).

Date Climbed: Aug 3, 2011


Takes no time at all climbing up and down from the U-Notch. Descending the U-Notch on the other hand... well, let's just say it wasn't in the condition I was hoping for.

HyadventureMy final California 14’er via SW ridge.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2010


This was my final California 14'er. It turned out to be a very emotional and physical battle to finally conquer the Palisades. A big thanks to my partners Patricia Bell and Garrett Broughton for their help.
