Day & Nite on the Dome  Sucess!

The guys and I suffered a 3-person party on Regular Route. Really didn't enjoy the lower portion due to slick rock; upper section was fun. Descended south slope in dark due to a blown-out team member. ugh

Great Pumpkin  Sucess!

Swung leads with Kevin on this strange run-out route. Really got my attention and respect. First time on the dome and looking forward to getting back on it. Perfect weather; not another soul in sight.

Reg. Route & Fairest of All  Sucess!

Reg. Route with Tim back in the day.
Fairest with Jim in late 80's, and repeated with Marty in the late 90's (included an unplanned bivy just below the top after getting a late start 12:45). Very cold night.
Have gone back at least twice to repeat the Regular Route but gave up due to the crowds.

ICY-Regular Route  Sucess!

Started this climb a little late in the day (12:30ish). We ran into ice the whole way up the climb and it was a nightmare. We ended up finishing the last pitch with a headlamp and hiking back to the car in the dark. Give the Regular Route a few days to thaw out after an early fall snow storm..

East Face  Sucess!

Out by myself. Found an interlinking series of dihedrals and seams on the eastern side and opted for that instead of the southwest slope (a dreary trudge). Broke out the rock shoes halfway up.

South Slope  Sucess!

Traversed from Medlicott Dome. Descended NE Ridge - a fine scramble, better than the South Slope. Trip Report

Regular Route in rain  Sucess!

One of my best days with my old high school climbing partner Evan. Good times- we simuled half of it just because we were teens and kept missing belays by accident!

Regular route  Sucess!

Climbed with a good friend. Got to lead the crux 5.9 pitch-clean (even though it had water all over the crux)! Very exciting climb. Clean rock, good pro.

90 minutes  Sucess!

First pitch was wet. A route finding mistake on the traverse cost me some time but gained me someone else's bail sling and biner.

Snow but Go  Sucess!

2 days after Tioga Road opened there was still lots (3-4 feet) of snow here. But it was very hikable on the crusty top from Cathedral Lakes trailhead and was able to navigate to Fairview Dome's south side and go up. Had summit (and maybe entire sub-range) to myself.
