Brushy scramble  Sucess!

Did this as a little side trip after setting up camp in LYV. Route was not as well-cairned as I'd read, so there was some very brushy route-finding involved. Some fun scrambling. Great view of Nevada Falls at the top. Lucked out (it barely went) on a quicker descent down the E side to hit the JMT next to the Merced. GPS tracks

NE gully  Sucess!

Lots of bushwhacking, fun scramble with solitude on the summit. A couple Peregrines greeted us as we topped out

Nice detour on the way to Half Dome. A little scrambling will be required.

From LYV  Sucess!

Overall a fairly easy scramble from the LYV trail near Nevada falls; the only tricky part was in the upper gully, as snow was still lingering there. Got a view of Nevada Falls from the top, and saw three bears as we were descending. The "trail" is fairly easy to find; there are well established cairns about every 100 feet.

NE Gully  Sucess!

Agree, keeping to the climber's right in the gully is easier, less bushwhacking.

NE Gully

Great hike with a tough, fast, & fun meetup club. We were rewarded with excellent views and no other company but us. Due to the drought there were just a few patches of snow & ice but those Jeffries on top were green and still hanging on.

NE Gully  Sucess!

1 year anniversary hike after breaking my ankle the year before.
Hit Sierra Point on the way up before ascending the NE Gully.

Pics and commentary are here.

Northeast Gully  Sucess!

Probably the best approach ever, didn't even care if we got to the summit. Falls are peaking and we left early enough in the morning to avoid the crowds on the Mist trail. Found our solitude steps off the trail out of LYV. Fun day, great views.

Winterish Ascent  Sucess!

Climbed up from the valley. No snow at all on the way up. Strange winter. Got really warm climbing. It's like summer. Fun summit! Awesome views!

Bushwack!  Sucess!

Skirted the shoulder of LC before cutting in. The best way is to stay to the climber's right of the summit heading South. Views were okay...

Relaxing climb  Sucess!

Nice climb to grab some views after doing the slabs the day before
