North Arete  Sucess!

It was nice to go light and do it car-to-car in a day.

East Couloir Route  Sucess!

This is one of the best summits in the Yosemite region. Scenic route and Matterhorn has that majestic look. There's a climber's path 75% of the route.

Horse Creek Pass  Sucess!

Long dayhike with Ol' Walsher ... the sandy SE slope was horrible. The views from the top of the Yosemite backcountry, however, were sublime...

long day hike  Sucess!

Started at Twin Lakes, followed Horse Creek, and ascended the SE side. The rough footing on much of the trail made for a tiring but rewarding day

Burro Pass  Sucess!

Surprisingly easy scramble up the saddle. Climbed with my cousin Cory. Great day!

Horse Creek to who knows?  Sucess!

Up the creek, around the back, up some rocks, across some scree... Not sure exactly how we made it up there, but we did. The scramble to the top was awesome. The drive back to the bay area sucked.

Horse Creek Pass, I think!  Sucess!

Climbed all over the mountain taking the least practical routes (not on purpose!). Loved the scramble to the summit.

Burro Pass and up the ridge!  Sucess!

Climbed from Burro Pass to the saddle between Matterhorn Peak and another neighboring peak and then a short class 3 scramble up!

North Arete  Sucess!

Camped at lake at 9,800'. Used crampons to get to start. A lot of loose rock coming down from climbers above. Crux is the very last move above the dihedral and small chimney where you will want to haul your packs.

Day hike by way of Horse Creek Pass  Sucess!

A slog to the pass, did some fun class 3 as we moved toward the East to ascend, back down for a steak and beer at Twin lakes.

Done...  Sucess!

car-to-car in a day via the north arete.
The view from the top was a little hazy due to the recent fires.

North Arete  Sucess!

Did the 5.9 variation at the bottom; the rest of the usual route was better quality rock, though, so is best to skip this variation and get up high quicker - leaves more time for skiing back down.

Re: Ski Dreams

Hey Brian,

Sorry I missed you a couple weeks back. I went up there Sunday (9th), I went up and down the East Couloir. Glad I wasn't really there for the skiing, it wasn't so good.

North Arete  Sucess!

Climbed with Kovarpa. Whatever we did, it certainly wasn't the 5.4 / 5.5 route the guidebooks describe. I took my 1st fall (nothing big really) at the beginning of P1 and that took the wind out of my sail. After that Pavel all the way to the summit. Nice climb, but I guess I wasn't in the right state of mind for it.
