Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: July 2004  Sucess!

Still one of my all-time favorite ascents. Loved the exposure, loved the rock, loved the direct ascent, love my partner. It was an amazing (although incredibly long) day. We started from Young Lakes and returned to Tuolumne for a 20 hr RT (no need for others to go this slowly!).

Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: September 18, 2005  Sucess!

Beautiful day in a gorgeous area. The east ridge route is very nice if you stay close to the ridge crest with great views.

Route Climbed: South Slope from the East Date Climbed: September 14, 1993  Sucess!

A great hike in a spectacular area. We had to cross a snowfield in tennis shoes just before we reached pass 11,400. My partner stopped on the slope just above the pass and I continued on, solo.

Route Climbed: East Ridge from Alpine Lake Date Climbed: June 28, 2004  Sucess!

My birthday climb, solo, got snowed on while on the summit, then chased off by the sound of crackling electricity; fun route, I must do it again under better conditions.

Route Climbed: Y Couloir Date Climbed: August 13, 2005  Sucess!

Summited with Andre sans ice axe and crampons. Gained the base of the couloir via suncups then climbed the rock on the climber's right. A lot of loose rock and holds had to be tested. A couple of class 4 moves 100 feet from the top of the couloir. After exiting the couloir easy class 2-3 scramble via east ridge on good rock to the summit.

Route Climbed: North Ridge Date Climbed: August 7, 2005  Sucess!

After quickly changing plans from the West Ridge to the less committing North ridge, Bob Pickering and I solo'd the route just ahead of rain and thunderstorms. We had the route to ourselves. The downclimb from the 2nd tower was much easier than anticipated (5.4?). Awesome climb!

Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: July 25, 2005  Sucess!

Climbed with Derek Bomholt. Beautiful weather. A bunch of snow on the approach up from Sawmill Campground on the shoulder of Conness. Had a little trouble finding the start, but real straightforward after that. What a great route. Stayed right on the edge/ ridge the whole way. Nicely exposed and fun climbing. Made it back to the car by dark.

Route Climbed: West Ridge Date Climbed: Aug 1998  Sucess!

Climbed this long before I was in summit post. Just remember it was a long day. Started around 6:00am. I fell and smashed two fingers on the way up so crack jamming was difficult. Got back to the car around 10:00pm. Was a great hike and climb.

Route Climbed: Glacier Route Date Climbed: 07/20/01  Sucess!

Day hiked the glacier route from Saddlebag Lake. Came down the Carnegie Institute side. Very hard and icy couloirs off the glacier. Loose rock to get around the Bergschrund. Overall a fun climb - but a long day.
