Fun solo, about 1h30 from car to summit. Mostly no-hands-required slabs until near the top.

Paul86Awesome!  Sucess!


Soloed this climb about a year ago. Great climb! Would not recommend a solo unless you feel comfortable on at LEAST 5.7 trad leads. Be smart.

Fun solo on a cloudless day. Beautiful clean white granite and excellent views !

For the finish I took the rightmost "loose 4th class" variation as per supertopo, since it ended closer to the summit. Nice half-day excursion, though next time I think I'll just drop down the ridge to the trail instead of thrashing down through the boulders & such.

PellucidWombatGreat Simul-climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 31, 2010


Led/simul-climbed the NW Buttress with Chris Terry while Dave Millar and Joel Bernier soloed it beside us. The climbing was easier than expected. Clean, fun rock, easy pro, and easy routefinding. The 5.7 direct finish was also very fun and secure climbing.

Chris and I descended the SW Ridge, but took a shortcut descent off of the ridge somewhere between the standard route and the West Face route.

Easily climbed from the south plateau after working at Sunrise High Sierra Camp all summer (with Susan Stubblefield). Then traversed to Tresidder Peak and back to Sunrise to close up camp for the winter.

Awesome solo with my buddy Keith. We then ran over and soloed Cathedral during the last light when the face was orange in the waning light. Awesome.

Date Climbed: Oct 18, 2009


Hiked up with Maianh ~500 ft away from summit. Then, I ran up and tagged summit solo. Great view of Tenaya Lake, Half Dome. Due to Lembert Dome climb earlier that day we were up there pretty late. Forgot headlamps and were a bit worried of getting stuck up there in the dark. Enjoyed descent route via 3rd class scramble overlooking lake. Hope to return for NW Buttress route one day.

Great fun. Did the 5.7 variation with Tyler aka Chimbo. A little bit of snow and ice left over from last weekend's snow spiced things up just a bit.

Very fun, so many routes you can take. Really only needed the rope for 1 pitch for practice, probably made things harder than they needed to be, but hey you gotta practice sometime! Can't keep gettin onto harder routes without a rope forever.
