South Chute from PCT  Sucess!

This was the 4th Peak my wife and I climbed during our vacation in northern Tahoe. We left the PCT, hiking north before the lava cliff and climbed up the chute on the south side to the left of the summit; we follow what appeared to be a use trail. The final bit is a hike on talus.

NW Chute  Sucess!

4th of 5 peaks between Donner Pass and Squaw. Talus approach to chute solid and easy going, chute itself was less so, but still lots of fun and a good break from trails.

Burning Ambition  Sucess!

Was so anxious to begin my vacation I hiked from Donner Pass to Anderson without sunscreen or adequate water (there was none on the trail). Hike and summit were great but I paid for it with a lobsteresque sunburn.

North Couloir  Sucess!

An enjoyable winter dayhike out of Donner Pass with Bob, tagging Donner Peak, Mt. Judah, Anderson Peak, Tinker Knob, and Mt. Lincoln. Great views and great weather the whole day.

The climb up the leftmost north couloir on Anderson Peak was by far the best part of the day. Moderately steep snow that was in absolutely perfect condition for kicking steps. Good fun.

March 2003  Sucess!

First "mountaineering" experience. Snowshoed up to the Benson hut with a more experienced buddy, who showed me how to kick steps in snow, and use a trekking pole for self-arrest and glissading (NOT recommended). We then kicked steps up the hard snow to the top of the peak and glissaded down. Scared the crap out of me :)

From Benson Hut  Sucess!

Climbed up the NW face from the Benson hut. There was still plenty of snow on the face but none on top or the south side. Was a little sketchy without crampons.
