a fine view  Sucess!

I will always remember the day I hiked up to Leavitt's summit. It was when I lived in Auburn and was doing a lot of exploring in the region. The view to the south of the Emigrant Wilderness and Northern Yosemite was superb. I remember it being one of the most inspirational vistas I had ever seen. I live now in Wyoming for 15 years, but I still remember that view as something else. There were so many beautiful summits to gaze at, I could barely leave the summit. I remember it as a chilly clear day in the fall, and I drove back to Auburn a very happy hiker. I hope to return again. I always dreamed of Tower Peak after seeing it that day.

Didn't know it had a name!

Can't remember exactly when it was that we climbed this one, but it was winter, '01 or '02 (can't remember), and we didn't know the mountain had a name back then. Climbed with a large group of fellow instructors from the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center.

Y couloir, twice  Sucess!

Climbed up, thought about skiing this down - to the entertainment of other skiers on the summit, just before dropping in one my skis released and went all the way down the couloir... so down I went and back up again. Dropped in at about noon but chickened out after some 50 feet... climbed back up and skied the north slope instead back down Blue Canyon... I wish I was a better skier.

Shredn the N. Bowl  Sucess!

Quick morning solo trip with the splitboard up the North Bowl. The couloirs didn't look appealing, so even with a partner it would have still been the N. Bowl for descent. Conditions were firm for about 300', and then nothing but prime Sierra spring corn!

Via Blue Canyon  Sucess!

After climbing Highland Pk in the morning, I was pretty beat by the time I scrambled up the NW ridge. Cold and windy on top. 4h car to car.

Blue Canyon/PCT  Sucess!

Second time up from Blue Canyon via the NW ridge, beautiful route. No snow this year(low snow), made short work of the route. Then descended the PCT over to Sonora Peak. Not a person on the peak.

Day Hiking Leavitt  Sucess!

Day hiked Leavitt Peak with some friends from the Loma Preita Peak Climbing Section. I was surprise at the amount of snow we had to traverse. You can see for 50 miles for this peak.

Y couloir  Sucess!

Climbed Y couloir with friend Andrew. There was A LOT of snow up there. Well worth it, though, with views south to Mt. Lyell from the top.

"Y" Couloir  Sucess!

Climbed the Y Couloir with my Buddy Dave. Man eating suncups and runnels slowed us down but we were successful (snow convered 95% of the route). The upper Y was nicely steep, probably 55 degrees or more.

Rest Stop  Sucess!

On our way to visit sister-inlaw. We stopped and I pleaded for a quick run to the summit. I had serious time limits from the wife, so I ran as hard as I could. Next time I'll be able to llok around more.

Great day but very windy! My son's first summit and overnight trip. Blue Canyon is a great way to the peak and nice lakes along the way.
