Highland Trailhead. At first a walk in the woods, nice trail. Then patches of snow. Then continuous snow for 3/4 of the route to the top. Huffin' and a puffin', up the snow-covered ridge, happy to see the occasional faint ski tracks from earlier in the winter. Outstanding views in every direction from the top.

Really steep, but all on trail until final summit blocks. Went up the class 3 blocks and descended the class 2 ramp referenced by Fedak. Trip report is HERE.

Date Climbed: Feb 10, 2013


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.

4x for Rubicon. Traversed to Peak 9269 and Jakes- summiting the former but got stopped out by the Jakes summit block.

Pics and commentary here.

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!

MarmadukeShort Class 3 to Summit with exposure  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 26, 2010


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.

fedakRe: Short Class 3 to Summit with exposure


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

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.
