Lost count...  Sucess!

I took my friends Mike and Maria up Southeast Buttress on a day climb from the Bay Area. At this point, I lost count of how many times I climbed this route. Probably five or six...

Mellow and not so crowded day

Speedily climbed the mountaineer's route. Use some trad on last pitch of summit block. Perfect day!

SE Buttress  Sucess!

There was a huge group of us that climbed the mountain very late in the day. I was the very last person to reach the summit, and was able to crest just as the sun was setting. The mountains were shadowed out, but the sky was this fiery red. We rappelled in the dark, and it was a fantastic time.

SE Buttress  Sucess!

Great day trip with Peter Green. Ran out of time for the North face of Eichorn Pinnacle. Guess that means a return trip is in order!

First Trad Route  Sucess!

The day prior an acquaintance from the yarts buss and I soloed the descent route and decided to climb the SE Buttress the next day. It was my first trad route, I had only sport and gym experience prior. It was awesome. soloing the summit block the prior day was fun but scary, and we protected the down climb after climbing the SE Buttress.

SE Buttress (5.6)  Sucess!

Did this fantastic route on day 2 of our first trip out to Tuolumne from Sacramento. The approach was beautiful and quite an easy stroll. The climbing was fun and fairly consistent in difficulty and the views were spectacular. We saw two nice marmots at the base of the climb. The descent was quick and straightforward. A classic all the way.

Solo  Sucess!

This day was supposed to be a hike with Matthew Holliman, but a coyote derailed his plans, and he recked his car. No worries, I summited, and enjpyed the spectacular peak. Can't wait to do this with Bob solo.

Lucked out... only two other parties on the peak all morning. Great climb. Very beautiful. Combined it with Eichorn Pinnacle ascent.

Cathedral In Every Way  Sucess!

My first roped ascent of a peak. Not crowded back in 1985! From Budd Lake - I think we did West Face and up crack in south of summit block.

SE Buttress  Sucess!

Great climb. Lived up to all the advertisment. A Tuesday in late September, and still had 3 other parties near by. Didn't lead the chimney pitch too gracefully though ... :-) The rest of the climb rocked. With GregS - thanks Bro!

Sweet!  Sucess!

My fifth trad route - we climbed with three and split the leads. A clusterf**** of very cool and interesting people. As the smallest of the crew I got to lead the chimney... my first chimney and it was so much fun!! Perfect rock, incredible views, great lead for beginners. The summit block scared me a bit -- not a huge fan of downclimbing. But a great learning experience!
