Long Hike  Sucess!

Started out at Lembert Dome towards Young Lakes. Only had about a minute up top due to the impending thunderstorms.

N Ridge Funfest  Sucess!

Climbed N Ridge with Jake on an SMG trip; great fun and not as hard as it looks in the photos. We used a running belay for most of the technical climbing.

Conness  Sucess!

From Sawmill meadow. Someone went to great effort to place rocks like stair-steps up the last narrow section (from the plateau toward the summit). However these have fallen off in a couple of short sections that as a result felt closer to class 3 than class 2.

East R via Alpine Lake  Sucess!

Lots of snow for this time of year. We saw a green tent on the summit plateau-- and didn't realize till we were back home, that it belonged to a Vegas friend who was climbing the SW face! Good thing we didn't follow through on our plan to rifle through the tent for money. Storm clouds and snow sent us home before N Peak.

North Ridge  Sucess!

Not sure why I didn't do this one before. Probably one of the most beautiful places in the Sierra I've seen, and the route was just pure fun! Great quality rock and easier than I thought it might be. Definitely want to go back!

North Ridge  Sucess!

Fun scramble/climb. Lucky enough to meet some guys to climb the upper part roped but wasn't really necessary.

Nice day in the Mountains  Sucess!

More fun with snow on the route. Combine it with North peak for some ice fun.

Y Couloir  Sucess!

Solo trip up Y-Couloir. Fine snow for crampons and axe. Summit all to myself. Beautiful day.

South Slope + East Ridge  Sucess!

Approached from Sawmill Campground - took south slope on way up (via sandy/gravelly pass) and came down via some weird distortion of the East Ridge route.

Loved the last little ridge to the summit - what fun!

from Saddlebag Lake via Conness-White Saddle  Sucess!

I went class 2 route through Carnegie and over C-W saddle

N ridge + W ridge solo  Sucess!

Absolutely amazing! Solid rock and sustained interesting climbing. The downclimb crux on the north ridge is quite a bit easier than 5.6. Trip report

Sawmill to Summit  Sucess!

Standard route from Sawmill Campground to plateau. Great fun gaining more experience and fantastic views from summit! Unsuccessful finding the East Ridge route for the descent. Next time.

From Young Lakes  Sucess!

Backpacked at Young Lakes and hiked up the trail. I'm pretty new to mountains, so this was pretty high up there in terms of fear level at the exposed summit block. It was a great peak though. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Hopefully it's just the beginning!

East Ridge  Sucess!

Up the east ridge from Alpine Lake. Seems more like class 2 than 3. Lovely hike capping off a great weekend, enjoyed the final section to the summit.

A Few Times  Sucess!

Climbed it a couple of times back in the '70's from the West side, and once with a heavy backpack exiting down the NE couloir.
