JasonHGood Times.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 8, 2009


Got a late start. I got stuck behind a wagon train and pioneers in Meyers and got stopped one mile form the trail head due to road maintenance at Carson Pass. We didn't start hiking until 11:30 am. We made it to the top pretty quickly and I did my first ever class 4 climb and I don't think I want to do it again. Shortly after getting to the top we got chased down by thunders storms coming at us from all directions. Good times.

Digglerfun!  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 2, 2009


Quite the enjoyable morning adventure! I'd wanted to do this one for years. Deciding to do something besides go up the lifts & down groomed runs @ Kirkwood, finally did this, from the SnoPark overnight lot. ~2:30 up & exactly 1:00 down. The true summit provided some short, fun, & exposed climbing on what seemed to be relatively solid volcanic stuff. Summit views were phenomenal, weather was great, & I had the whole place to myself (on the way up anyway). Need to get more accustomed to the ungroomed Sierra Cement so I can do more backcountry boarding! I surmise I'll do this one again.

Date Climbed: Jan 17, 2009


Up the snowless ridge to the summit. Climbed the shorter, more southern summit first before I realized my mistake. Lots of skiers hiking up the dry ridge despite the fact that the mountain is virtually bare.

Nice half-day snowshoe / scramble from Meiss Meadow sno-park (Carson Pass). A bit breezy and partly-cloudy with weather coming in.

Also did it in October 2004.

sacplannerPerfect Day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 22, 2007


Perfect day for a climb in snowshoes. Arrived early with unbroken few-day-old snow all the way up. Beautiful views of Lake Tahoe, Round Top, and the Sierras. Made it down as it clouded up for the afternoon and started getting cold. Can't wait to climb Round Top across 88.

hgrapidHazy day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2007


We cut from the PCT after about 1/8th of a mile and headed straight for the ridge. It took just over an hour to get to the summit. The class 3 up to the summit wasn't too bad. The views were pretty nice, but it was a really hazy day. No snow on the ridge. Only small patches left in small pockets. No snow on the summit.

Couldn't have asked for better winter ascent conditions. Temps in the upper 40s and very little wind until evening. Climbed the Southwest Ridge from the Hwy 88 Snowpark parking lot. Spent the night near the summit and traversed to Stevens Peak the following day. Amazing panoramic views!
