Attempt 2. Last November (without beta), attempted to climb class 4/5 icy north ridge and got rebuffed. Went back in warmer conditions and summited using the standard class 2/3 route. Pictures

I originally balked at the exposure on the standard West ridge (Jenkins) route and spent some time on the north/west side looking for an easier route. Failing in that, we returned to the west ridge and made short work of the exposed ledge. Great summit!

irrationalistFirst outing into the Domeland  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 28, 2013


Climbed this with my friends Zack, Brian and Dan. Zack and I saw this from Cannell Peak in the Spring and wanted to hit this along with a trip to McNally's on the way back.

A bit more involved on the scrambling than I expected. It was class 3 at the summit block. It only got risky in a couple spots (due to crumbly licheny rock) but was fine if you took your time. I have no idea how someone got a 11 and 6 year old up this (saw their signatures in the book). I wonder if I missed some really easy way up?

Short but enjoyable. Views of Domeland Wilderness were better than from Sirretta.

Date Climbed: Oct 7, 2011


Nice trip up from Big Meadow on the way to Rockhouse, both peaks have nice but short scramble before the summit. There was 3-6" fresh snow on the ground from the previous week's and day's storm. Went up a face on the NNE side due to ice covering the otherwise easier NW side.

Nice hike on a beautiful day with tremendous views from the top. I could have stayed up there all day. Climbed after Sirretta Peak in the morning.

Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2008


I went with some friends to Taylor Dome which is about 4 miles round trip with an elevation gain of approximately 1100 feet. There is also a class 3 climb at the top, and the view is magnificent.

scrambled up from Manter Meadow after a day's work on the local trails. Spent approximately 5 months in the Manter Mdw area over the course of 2 summer with the USFS. Pretty awesome place to live.

I climbed this peak with a large group (PCS). We went up Taylor Dome in the morning and then climbed Siretta in the afternoon. Taylor was somewhat better in my opinion.

Like Bob said. The scramble up the north side was pretty fun. Very windy on the summit! Tagged the pinnacle just to the south as well, 'just because'--much easier than it looks from Taylor Dome.

An enjoyable warmup day, tagging this and Rockhouse before the long Angora/Coyote hike the next day. Domelands is a highly enjoyable area, and the meadows were awesome (especially Manter Meadow). Trip Report

Climbed this after Rockhouse earlier in the day. I spent a couple of hours messing about on a mixture of class 3-5 rock further to the south after I got confused about where the summit actually was. This turned out to be pretty frustrating for what should have been an easy peak. Pics/TR on my webpage.
