Great winter hike with a swell view of Tahoe. Enjoyed the summit blocks, which had just enough snow on them to make it a little more interesting. Cold day... never got above freezing.

There is a mostly class 2 ramp around the back of the summit to the right

Some of the best views of Tahoe that I've ever seen. Easier hike than expected.

5hrs RT with MaiAnh. Snowy terrain entire way. Amazing lake views starting from the TH. Carried ax/snowshoes but didn't use them. Our attempts to avoid walking on ski tracks proved futile as a later group of snowshoers obliterated them.

Enjoyed some soggy turns on the NE aspects. 'Mashed Potatoes' would be a huge understatement!

What a great hike, tougher than expected. Better Tahoe views than Tallac. But the summit block is not class 2, very much a 3 with about a 4 foot wide knife ridge to summit with exposure to the south. Only 2 hours for the roundtrip.

Quick summer afternoon summit. Still a bit of patchy snow above 8500ft, but not enough to need crampons/axe.

Pics are here.

Tried this 2 weeks ago and got stopped out by snow about a quarter mile from the summit.
Went up again today and was successful. Only patchy snow left up there.
Summited from the back side.

Pics are here.

10 down on the OGUL list.

This is a hike I do after work during the summer. Awesome views and hiking up the ridge to Jakes is always nice!
