HikeMonkeyRoute climbed: SW Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 29, 2007


Car broke down at Olmstead Point. I had already visited Mt. Hoffman and Cloud's Rest, so this seemed like the only other natural peak to visit. Kind of a boring walk up to the peak, but the views were spectacular. After we reached the top, we walked cross country to Long Meadow, and then cross country to Sunrise Lakes, and then back out on trail to Tenaya Lake and Olmstead Point. So we could make a day of it, before we limped back home in a broken car. About 6 liters of Tenaya Lake carried back to the car in our camelbacks seemed to be just the ticket for our low coolant problem.

We also roped up just for the last few pitches and took what I THINK may have been the 5.7/5.8 or something crack... it was just hard, but didn't look like it was in the right place to be the SuperTopo... you can't go wrong on this peak. Fun and a good warm up for a swim on the sandy beach below!

Soloed the NW Buttress with Tomb Michelle Raider. Another fun day!

Route Climbed: NW Buttress
Date Climbed: September 3, 2005

Although we took rope and a light rack, Mark Ingram and I ended up soloing the route and made the summit in 1 hour 40 minutes from the Tenaya parking lot. The descent took us 1 hour 2 minutes (2 hrs 42 minutes car-to-car). We then took a swim on Tenaya Lake. A fun, short day.

Easy. We roped up for the last two pitches since we carried the rope. Could be soloed easily. There are so many people on the climb, it's way easier to pass people when you are not roped.

A very so-so route. Really wanted to do the NW buttress, but no partner available for this mid-week romp in the Sierra. Nice views from the summit looking back down the buttess.

Quick simul climb up w/ Vendulka and Mike Z. as part of Tenaya/Tressider/Columbia Finger traverse. Views are better than the climb itself...

I want to do this again solo. We roped up on the last 3 pitches. I remember numerous other parties wondering out loud why they brought so much gear. It is barely 5th class, yet sustained and exposed enough you would roll a ways in a fall. Great intro to long trad routes for beginners. And a fantastic way to spend a day.

Very good climb. The view of Tenaya Lake kept the hike back enjoyable.

Solo'd. Down climb the mental crux. A very nice short day from anywhere on the East Side, provided you already have a Park Pass.

Jon and I climbed up this with a little nalgene of wine to celebrate our anniversary. It is such a fun route! I only remember one slippery move in an icy-cold shadow that felt a little tricky (compared to the rest of the day). I highly recommend this climb. If we do it again on a warmer day I'm going to jump in the lake after descending.

Woo-hoo! Our first 5th class free solo, and like most first free solos, an accidental one. Loved the feeling, but don't know if I would try it very often. The descent, as predicted, was a bummer, especially compared to the ascent.

Fun and easy slab climbing. Fun overhanging block near the summit for great photo opps; Interesting descent around the lake and back.

Nice and easy. Nowhere near the crowds of Cathedral Peak, probably because of the relative unasthetic summit. However, the views are still great and there is a nice bivy ledge about a pitch and a half from the top if you'd rather go to bed with solitude and a nice sunset vs. the Tuolumne campgrounds...

My girlfriend and I climbed this to celebrate our second anniversary. We soloed a few pitches lower down, but roped up for most (8 pitches). It was a great climb on a great day for us.
