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.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed via East Ridge from Sawmill Campground. The East Buttress is a very worthy scramble and has great views. I would recommend this route rather than Alpine Lake since it's more aesthetic and less bouldery. Outstanding, diverse mountain!

Independence Day Success.  Sucess!

Great fun! We went a little off track on the ridge to avoid lots of slushy snow at the top. This meant we had to climb up some class 4 stuff on the buttress. Feeling lazy, we glissaded down via the "Glacier Route and Y-Couloir." A fun day on the rock, awesome route.

super-fun link-up (North Ridge)  Sucess!

Went with AlpineAffinity + granjero and did the North Couloir of North Peak linked with the North Ridge of Conness. Fun moves!

East ridge  Sucess!

Left Saddleback lake at 630am w Felix. Got off track, ended up south of Alpine Lake. Scrambled our way to Alpine Lake then to the East Ridge. Felix stopped at summit plateau while I tagged the summit block and returned. Great views, fun scrambling, great day.

Nice day  Sucess!

Nice climb from Saddlebag, took the easy route. Quite a long day, and the scrambling was fun. Ended up I think 2 chutes south from the main chute on the climb up to the south slope, which required a couple solid class 3 moves through a narrow corridor between a steep snowback (too steep w/out crampons) and the side of hte chute. Took the more popular class 2 route down.

West Ridge and North Ridge  Sucess!

West Ridge -- July 26, 2009 -- Mary and I did this fantastic route from a base camp at Young Lakes. Easy cross-country travel led to the start of the route, where we pitched it out for 4 rope-lengths and then simul-climbed the rest of the way to the summit. Spent about 4 hours on route and then 2.5 hours descending back to Young Lakes. The descent was long, but not overly demanding. We spent another night at Young Lakes before hiking out the next morning. Awesome 3 days in the Yosemite backcountry.

North Ridge -- July 21, 2012 -- Mary and I did this one to finish the tour of Mount Conness (Harding Route is too difficult). Enjoyable, but mostly easy climbing. We simul-climbed the whole route in approach shoes. Descent was a bit longer than expected, but made it to the Tuolumne store in time for a late lunch.
