Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2008
Not difficult. Left TH past 5:30pm and scrambled up it along with Althuski. Only one real class 4 part. Not hard, but you want to be comfortable trusting both hands to the same rock edge to shimmy a little.

Date Climbed: Jul 4, 2008


Celebrated the evening of the fourth of July with my cousin Aaron on the summit of Unicorn Peak. Headed up past Elizabeth Lake and then up to the ridge between Cockscomb and Unicorn, then north along the ridge to the Unicorn. All three summits are nice though the northernmost is a classic. The vantage point is exceptional looking down on the Meadows. I wanted to cast off and soar down to the Tuolumne River like a pterodactyl, but didn't.

Fun little scramble up the far right (north) edge of the East Face, then a short traverse south to the summit. We continued on to Cockscomb, which was also a fun scramble.

The talus heap on the way from Cockscomb wasn't as bad as it looked. Nice views to complete the traverse.

I was only 9 and my brother 7 but I still made it quite a way up the east slope. Stopped few 600-700 feet below the top. We were not ever intending to get very far past Elizabeth Lake.

Date Climbed: Aug 5, 2006


Hiked up from our campsite in Tuolomne Meadows via Elizabeth Lake with Brian, Amaryah, and Chase. Outstanding views and a good work out scrambling up form the lake. A great way to adjust to the altitude and the exposure to heights before several other hikes to follow during our stay. In fact, the exposure dissuaded me from attempting the crux. Next time.

Attempted to do the grade 4 traverse of all the peaks in this area. We made it as far as Matthes Crest before we had to rap off due to weather.

Fun half-day scramble with Eszter Tompos. The exposed class 4 gap on the summit ridge was quite unnerving but fun.

Carlos was 15, and I was 16 when we broke off from our x-country team at Elizabeth Lake. We scrambled up the east slope to the summit. Too stupid to admit being scared, we took turns sitting on the very north end of the summit blocks with our feet hanging off into the abyss. It was breathe taking. I left my driver's permit under a rock to prove we were there. The coach was not happy.

Great summit! Just 100 ft. below Cathedral. I did it with my friends Ryan McCourt, and Allison. Fun, but cold in the shade & wind! The summit is interesting -- it's more broken than you think from the view of it from the Meadows, and there are 3 big, thin plates standing upright. Wild!

My first class 4 peak, and it ended up (thanks to the kindness of strangers) being my first roped climb too. I headed up to see if I was comfortable scrambling this stuff (solo) yet, but came to some rock I wasn't convinced I could downclimb. Chickening out, I met a couple coming up--they'd backed off twice before (this made me feel better), brought a rope this time, and kindly invited me to rope in.

I must have found it a bit spicy even with the rope, because my mouth was bone dry by the time I reached the summit. The downclimb was easier than I expected. I was glad I'd brought my rock shoes though... with my climbing skills, I need all the help I can get!

Fun climb! The approach was slow because of the abundant snow from the April storms. The summit was clear of snow. One tricky fourth class move involved squeezing between two rocks.
