second time  Sucess!

Climbed this with a full pack to train, almost a year after the first time. Even with a pack it was much easier than last time, so guess I'm getting stronger :)

Via Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Approximate date. Great alternative to Half Dome as a Central Yosemite hike with spectacular views and a lot fewer people, especially in the fall, when I did it.

From Happy Isles  Sucess!

Second year in a row doing a mid-April dayhike from Happy Isles, made it without snowshoes but lots of snow above 9000 feet and on summit. Trip report is HERE

From Happy Isles  Sucess!

Nice long dayhike from the valley. Mist Trail was closed which added an extra 2 miles to the hike. Patches of snow starting at 7000 ft continuing up the summit which, itself, was virtually free of snow.

JMT side trip  Sucess!

Went up there as a side trip on day 2 of a JMT thru-hike that included 11 peaks. Glorious views of the Valley and Half Dome.

Best view of Yosemite   Sucess!

Turned back due to time and snow back in early May. But went back and well worth it, great views of the Valley.

Sunrise to Clouds Rest  Sucess!

Dayhiked here during a backpacking trip with my friend. Fantastic views and fairly easy hike from Sunrise camp.

Return to Clouds Rest  Sucess!

My first backpack ever was to Clouds Rest. It was a lot easier this time.

welcome Summer 2013  Sucess!

Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful Spring day. Patches of snow on the trail here and there. Tenaya Creek up to the knees in places. All my life I've looked up to this place, and finally, finally got to visit it. Met another solo fella just before wading across the creek, and we hit it off. A great visit, all the way out and back.

Second time's the charm  Sucess!

Had to turn back 50ft from the summit one year ago due to ice, but not this year!

Early Spring Ascent  Sucess!

Did the dayhike from Happy Isles - the trail was devoid of snow until patchy snow around 8,500 feet, then occasional deep snow above 9,500 feet. Glad I decided to lug the snowshoes up. Trip report at

Fourth of July hike  Sucess!

Hiked from Tenaya Lake. Superb views on the final ridge.

From Sunrise/Tenaya  Sucess!

Quick day hike with John on a crisp, cold morning. I think the view from the summit is as good or better than any other point in Yosemite. Great vantage point between the Valley and Tuolumne.

From Tenaya Lake  Sucess!

Guided a group of female backpackers over Clouds Rest on day 2 from Tenaya Lake. Was my first time up and I almost felt bad that it had taken me this long to experience a real Yosemite classic! Spectacular views all around and a fun airy summit (for non-climbers anyway).

From Tenaya Lake  Sucess!

Best view of the park, hands down. Nice stroll from Tenaya Lake, fun scramble along the knife-edge. Excellent weather and fun group made for a memorable outing.

Clouds Rest  Sucess!

Nice hike from Tenaya Lake and not too many people on the trail.

Awesome  Sucess!

Perfect hike to get the YNP overview and fairly easy to boot!

Warm Sept Day  Sucess!

From Sunrise with Half Dome the next day. The views are as good as reported. I quite enjoyed walking along the ridge.
