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.

From the PCT  Sucess!

Started from Donner pass. Watched a helicopter set poles for the ski lifts at Sugar Bowl and then a nice cruz to the peak.

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.
