North Face  Sucess!

Climbed this one with a small group from SMG. Started at the base of the NW ridge and climbed over the snowshed tunnel. Picked a route and had a fun day on mixed snow, rock, and ice.

Fun day out on the PCT  Sucess!

Climbed 5 peaks this day. Ran across a survey marker at the top and did not disturb it, so that I would not get the $50 fine in 1939 dollars!

All summer!  Sucess!

I love Donner Summit and was fortunate to be able to climb there about once a week all summer. Even did the highway 40 "climb" via road bike. Awesome descent!

One of my favorite playgrounds!  Sucess!

Forget how many times i've been here; one of my favorite areas in tahoe. Have rock climbed all over this peak and even the train trussle wall between tunnels off the North side near the bowl! Love it in the winter, have skiied into the bowl then snowshoed/skinned up to Judah then back to the parking area below the overlook lot multiple years. Someone left a nice kicker off the top of the center train tunnel roof drop-offs. Most air i've ever got followed by a drop down one of the gullies into the bowl. Awesome runs!!

Hiked the NW Ridge with my dad after we found the crags to be too cold. This is a very fun hike and has an excellent view of Donner Lake.

Friends first REAL summit  Sucess!

I was using this and other Tahoe peaks as training for Orizaba when a friend asked to join me. We climbed Lincoln, Judah and Donner peaks that day. On the top of Donner his jaw dropped as he told me he had never been this high without a ski lift! Needless to say, another one is hooked!
