NewDayRisingSE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 5, 2007

NewDayRising

Snowshoed with 5 others up the ralston trail then off trail. Overshot the summit and went up the SE ridge to gain the summit. The ridge and summit were extremely windy and cold. My hands were numb and I couldn't operate my camera. Snowshoed down from the summit and camped near frozen Avalanche Lake.

I did this hike with Anita. It looked like it might storm but it didn't. The fall color was beautiful as was the view from the top!

Climbed it with a couple of co-workers from Sierra-at-Tahoe. Dragged our boards up there, and had a fun descent. Not that hard of a hike and the ride can be pretty fun with a lot of coverage and no avys.

Probably my favorite hike in the Tahoe basin. Not much views on the way up since you're in tree line but once you get to the summit the views are simply outstanding. Didn't see many people the day we went on the trail.

Climbed with Ol' Buddy esq., during a backpacking trip from Echo Lakes to Barker Pass via the Rockbound Valley and the giant sloth of redneck destruction (Rubicon Trail). Pretty cool climb in the Tahoe area.

Tagged this one during a backpacking trip from Echo Lakes to Barker Pass via the Rockbound Valley. Set up camp at Lake of the Woods and headed up with Ol' Walsher in the late afternoon. We had the place to ourselves. Great views of the prominent Tahoe area peaks and the southern Desolation Wilderness.

Perfect day for it, nice breeze the whole way. Shared the summit with one other couple that came up from Echo Lake. Didn't see anyone else until the way back down. Amazing view from the top of the Desolation area + tahoe.

First time up Ralston. Picked the one day this week without t-storms in the forecast, and it ended up a perfect day. Trail to summit is snow-free, and it looks like most of Desolation Wilderness is melted out as well. Didn't see a soul the whole way up and down until I got back to the parking lot. What's this about overcrowded wilderness?

My grandfather and I used to hike Ralston all the time from our cabin at Echo Lake. East Ridge, North Ridge from Haypress Meadows, up the bowl from Ralston Lake. Great way to grow up!

This was a tougher trail than I expected. Great views of Lovers Leap and Pyramid peak along the way. On the summit, an amazing view of Lake Tahoe and Desolation Wilderness. It was definently worth the trip.

Good workout with not too many views for the first half but the end result is well worth it. On a clear day you can see Lake Aloha, Lake Tahoe, Echo Lake (Lower and Upper), and numerous lakes and peaks in the Desolation Wilderness region.

My new girlfriend JoAnn and I hiked to the summit on a gorgeous Fall day. It was warm all the way up, but cold and windy on the summit. When we first arrived, Fallen Leaf/Tallac/Lake Tahoe were obscured by low clouds (kinda' cool), but cleared away during our lunch on the summit. The views.... spectacular!!
