SE Buttress  Sucess!

Climbed this thing a couple times. This is definitely one of the best climbs I've ever done! Done it roped and solo, and every time has been great. Choose your own adventure.

fiesta on the SE Buttress  Sucess!

Mountaineers  Sucess!

Excellent side-trip off the Muir Trail.

I agree with some that the steep/sandy approach isn't too fun. The exposed pitch to the summit was the best. Climbing it solo is pretty exhilarating!

SE Buttress  Sucess!

Great day, great group, favorite summit block so far.

Mountaineer's Route  Sucess!

My first mountain wholly inside Yosemite. The scrambling near the top was first-class and fun, though I had to do a little doubletake at the base of the summit block (it's not really too technically hard once you size everything up). Not a big fan of the scree ascent up the east side to the crest below the summit pinnacle - perhaps the complete north ridge might be a more aesthetic approach with more solid rock and better views? Great peak and amazing scenery!

light backpacking  Sucess!

Couldn't find a place in the campsite so backpacked up to the base the night before. the next day was very simple

Cathedral Mountaineers  Sucess!

Ben and I were able to secure a wilderness permit for the night, and camped at the base of the peak. In the morning we quickly climbed Cathedral. Very fun scramble, great view. We returned and drove to Pine Creek where we would meet up with the Sierra Challenge crew.

West Face  Sucess!

Climbed with Laura Molnar. Came up the West Face and did Eichorn Pinnacle north face first, then continued up to do the class 4 scramble atop Cathedral.

Approach shoes were fine; belayed Laura up & down, then flipped rope over the west side of the summit pinnacle and had Laura belay me as I downclimbed on toprope :)

Beautiful sunny day, though a bit chilly.

Date climbed: 28-June-2009
Route climbed: SE Buttress + 5.7 varations

Climbed with Matthew ... and what seemed like 40 of our closest friends :)

Led all the pitches this time. Did 5.7 variations to the left of the usual route. I think the fourth pitch (5.7 knobs + arete) was by far the best. We skipped the summit scramble this time, since it was getting crowded up there and we'd both been there before.

Beautiful day, got breezy and cloudy but no rain or thunder. Mosquitoes were out in force though.

Route climbed: SE Buttress + 5.7 variation
Date climbed: August 5, 2006

Swapped leads with Calvin Kilcrease, bypassing the chimney on some interesting 5.7 variations (which he led). Airy and fun summit !

Approach took us about 90 minutes (we were feeling slow :) Roped up around 10am (?) and met Haydar and his group from Portland. Clouds were looking ominous, but we headed off to the saddle and did Eichorn Pinnacle afterwards anyway ... heard thunder as we rapped off Eichorn. returned to cars by 7-ish.
