East Ridge  Sucess!

Gorgeous day !!! Lots of SP'ers on the summit together today. forjan you are an animal (running to the summit is superhuman). mybackyard and fossana only 4 minutes and 10 minutes behind forjan, you qualify as animals also with your second summit of the day!! wingding it was a pleasure to make your acquaintance along with Dave, Bruce, Alan, and Frank. I guess Mt Conness was violated from all 4 sides today.

Solo North and West Ridge Linkup  Sucess!

Started at 5:30 am from the parking lot at Saddlebag lake with fossana and forjan. Solo'd the North Ridge, had a snack at the summit, then descended to the base of the West Ridge and solo'd again to the summit. Back to the Car in 9.5 hours. Awesome weather, bad ass granite, good company. A good day.

A west facing gully  Sucess!

Meant to go the west ridge but botched up the approach we scrambled up some nasty gully on the west side and summited. Now I understand the mountain and will know were to go next time.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Superb scrambling up the east ridge from Saddlebag Lake. Wonderful views and a wonderful day. Down via Alpine Lake. Luckily I started early and it didn't start raining until after I got back and made it down to Lee Vining.

ascent by glacier and central couloir  Sucess!

Ascent by the glacier up to the unpassable bergshrund of the central couloir. This bergshrund can be avoided by the loose rocks on the right, then back to the couloir above the bergshrund, with some exposure then up to the ridge.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed with sodapants, from Sawmill Campground. Four hours up, two hours down. From Alpine Lake, we took snow fields below summit plateau to get to the top segment of East Ridge. Deep sun cups and soft snow slowed us down. A photo report is available.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Fun climb up the East Ridge from Sawmill Camp via Alpine Lake. Very nice class 3 with a little exposure on the last ridge to the summit.

West Ridge: Agony!

Jon and I were hoping to climb the West Ridge. Unfortunately we ended ended up traversing left pass the base of the ridge and climbed an arrete instead that was on the left of a massive gully. We had a sweet climb up sublime 4th easy 5th class granite only to summit on peaklet that was seperated from the summit via a deep notch. Doh! Wrong ridge but a sweet climb nonetheless. The descent was hellacious though we had to trudge through some deep snow and ran out of water.

Route Climbed: West Route Date Climbed: June 9, 2007  Sucess!

great day out climbing with ChuckO. Took us about 14:30 car-to-car. Some time was wasted by route-find error (mine) in which we followed up the incorrect drainage, and then had to climb up and over the east ridge to get into the correct one. Total time on route was ~4:30. Fun climb.

West Ridge  Sucess!

With Kurt (thanks Buddy!). Great day. Would agree with the description "exposed". Simul-climbed most, belayed a few spots.

Kind of a chilly day, but nice. Climbed ropeless with Doug. Easier than I thought it would be.

West Ridge, Almost

Momentous day. Unfortunately we jumped on the ridge behind the west ridge, and ended up on a little peaklet looking across a notch at the summit.

Y couloir  Sucess!

Fun snow climb, longer than it looks from the start of the route. Great spring skiing from the bottom of the couloir back to my camp...

East Ridge from Alpine Lake  Sucess!

What a quaint summit!
A giant reptile raising its head,
Its horrendous neck we climb.

East Ridge Route

The trip up was just spectacular. I didn't make it up the summit ridge though, too exposed for me back then. I can't wait to get back up there.

climbing and snowboarding

still enough snow for some late season snowboarding. Up the west ridge, followed by a fun ride down the glacier.
