Mountaineers route  Sucess!

Great weather. lots of people. very airy summit. ropes would have probably been useful for the last 10-15 feet. but fun nonetheless

Awesome Fall day on the SE Butt  Sucess!

Did the original route - fun and has a little of everything. I got to lead the $ chimney pitch. For a Monday in mid-Oct it was somewhat busy, but that's to be expected. Awesome climb and amazing views from a real airy summit block. Good day!

SE Butt solo  Sucess!

Last leg of the Tenaya-Matthes-Cathedral Linkup. An outstanding route and very fun, definitely my favorite out of those three. It did help starting the climb after 5pm as there was no one else on route. I was on the summit by 6pm and back at the car (Tenaya Lake) by 8pm.

Amazing summit  Sucess!

Probably one of the coolest summits that I have had the chance to stand on. Amazing views in an amazing location. The SE Buttress had about 50 people on it the day we climbed it!

To The Left  Sucess!

Three parties waiting for Chimney so we went up

exciting! Great pro.

First outdoor rock climb  Sucess!

What a way to get introduced to outdoor rock climbing - this iconic peak and its East Buttress route were the victim of my determination on a fine July afternoon. Awesome climb and hopefully the first of many!!

Mountaineers Route  Sucess!

Fun route. We found the Class 3 no problem at all, but 2 of 3 in our group (including me) used a rope on the short 10-ft crack on the summit block. Great views once you get above the trees.

Spring solo  Sucess!

Climbed on a windy spring day via my own variation of the Mountaineer's Route. Still some steep frozen snow on the route which could be avoided by staying low toward Eichorn and then high on the ridge to the summit. Quite exposed 4th class with mostly good holds.

Fun day with Jeff & Caleb. First climbed with Jim in July '84. Suzi & Scott (6/1989). I miss you Suzi.
Also with Todd & Devin (2010), Mark & Marty (Galen Rowell passed us - on 8/23/96), with motorcycle Ron around 1986 (I never did get my old harness & climbing shoes back).

Great Weather, 5 pitches, first real multi-pitch route with Josh Helling, guide from Yosemite Climbing school and Ian Fyfe. Highly recommend Josh as a guide.

Mountaineers Route  Sucess!

There is a trail built to the saddle now. That last 15 ft. will get your attention.

South Face  Sucess!

Climbed the short south wall at about midway between Eichorn Pinnacle and the main summit. It was just under three pitches of a mix of class 4 and up to about 5.5. Very enjoyable and recommended route.
