With a bit of free time to spare passing through, this made for a nice stretch to break up a long drive. PICS

Route Climbed: From Tioga Pass Date Climbed: October 9, 2005  Sucess!

Hiked to the top as part of a Glaciology course I took. Great views from the summit, but a 20 minute passionate lecture about everything from moraines to nunataks at the summit from the professor left me and the 15 other students freezing. A great weekend with a great group of people. TM is one of the most beautiful places in the world.

My annual scramble to the top, on a mosquitoey morning. Could hear thunder rumbling over Mt Dana, so moved off quickly. Love this hike!

The Hills Were Alive  Sucess!

My sons and I hiked up the south slope to enjoy the magnificent views from the summit. Great morning except for the mosquitoes.



Since the Great Sierra Mine was our ultimate destination we decided to find a route through the boulders of the northwest end of the peak. It was a little hairy at times but this was probably only the second dumbest thing we did all day.



The least intelligent thing was coming back through the snow fields along the west shore of upper Gaylor Lakes. Fortunately we all survived and have great photos to boot.

This was the first mountain that I climbed in Yosemite, and it's a good one. Easy hiking and great views. Not a bad beginner's peak.

Had an enjoyable scramble up this little peak... great views, but had to move off quickly, as a thunderstorm was starting to blow in.

Easy hike to a nice viewpoint. Couldn't find a register on the summit.

Despite the ease of ascent, it really is a fine little summit with some great views. I have been up a number of times and have never come across anyone else on top. Most of the trail hikers head down to Gaylor Lakes (which are also a nice destination.)

Took a quick side trip hike up to Gaylor Peak on the way to see the Great Sierra Mine. Was a bit disappointed that the east side of Dana wasn't visible from the peak, but otherwise the views were excellent.

Easy, fun climb. Glissaded all the way down to Tioga Pass Road in no time at all.

Sauntered up the trail with Uncle and Cousins visiting from back east. Great views of Cathedral Peak and Tuolumne Meadow. Just made me want to climb Mt. Dana!

Wanting to acclimatize as much as possible, I drove from the Bay Area after work, parked at Tioga Pass, and slept on the summit. Completely illegal, of course. Trip Report

Woke up early and decided to go and see the sunrise from Gaylor Peak--a plan that might have worked better if Mt. Dana (2000 ft higher) didn't lie directly east! My main memory is of it being damn cold sitting on the summit waiting for the sun to come up, but the views all around were worth it.
