Route Climbed: Snake Dike Date Climbed: 22 October, 2005  Sucess!

Classic route. Unfortunately the Valley was smoky, so the views weren't as stellar as they could be. That was one loooong day.

Route Climbed: Snake Dike Date Climbed: September 23, 2005  Sucess!

5th annual climb. This time as a one day trip. Left the car at 5am, base of climb at 10am, summit at 4pm, headed down at 5pm, and reached the car at 8pm. Long 15 hour day. Started and ended in the dark. Unfortunately the summit wasn't as fun since it was windy and overcast, but the route was still very enjoyable. 5 teams on the route that day.

My favorite hike so far. I have done it 3 other times since. Could not summit once due to the cables being down.

Route Climbed: Mist Trail Date Climbed: July 17, 2003  Sucess!

6 am start on the trail and made it to see sunrise through Nevada Falls. It is quite a sight to see. We hit the cables at about 9 am then spent about an hour on the summit. We got back down the cables prior to a horde of people arrived at bottom. All in all it was a fairly easy hike that we fininshed in about 7 hours.

Wanted to camp at Little Yosemite but couldn't get a permit. So we decided to do it as a day hike. We started from Happy Isles at 5:30am the next morning, and reached the summit by 11am. It was a beautiful clear day, no clouds and very little wind. The crowds starting coming up around noon. We took our time on the summit and made it back to the parking lot by 4:30pm.

Route Climbed: The Cables Date Climbed: August 28-30, 2005  Sucess!

Started the trail Sunday at 3:30 pm, reached Little Yosemite at 7:00 pm (via Mist Trail) and camped there. Woke up at 7:00 am and stayed at camp until 10:00 am due to the closure, got to the closed part of the trail at 1:00 pm and waited until 3:45 pm for the workers to finish and open the trail. Made the summit 4:23 pm, we decided to camp another night so we wouldnt have to walk out in the dark. Got back to camp at 6:30 pm. Left camp the next day at 7:15 am and took the John Muir trail back down, back to the car by 10:00 am.

All in all a great hike

Hiked with Betty - her first time in Yosemite. Spectacular climb no matter which way you do it! Traditional swim in the Merced on the way down was refreshing as always.

Left at 6:15 am, summited at 11:45 am, got back to Happy Isles at 5:25 pm. The cables were awesome, and it wasn't very crowded, which was nice.

A long and hot solo trek. The granite dust bothered my throat, but despite this the hike was one of the best I've done. I want to come back here with a partner.
