Middle of Winter  Sucess!

Nice easy climb in the middle of winter with no snow from Tioga Pass. Cold, but seasonably warm (mid 20s at summit). Beautiful day. Went ice skating at Tioga Lake afterwards.

From Tioga  Sucess!

After some trouble finding a camping spot near the pass, climbed Dana from the Tioga Pass gate. Pretty windy at the top but great views! First 13'er!!

First 13'er :)  Sucess!

My first hiking ascent past 11,000 ft, actually! It's a great hike and lucked out with the weather this winter. Wonderful views make it more than worth it.

Not too cold  Sucess!

Today was one of the warmest day this week and if not for the 15 mph wind would have been toasty when on the move. Did the standard route; had my eye on the glacier route for next time

Dry winter so far  Sucess!

Taking advantage of little snow so far this season, I drove up to Tioga Pass and hiked the mostly dry Mt. Dana on a cold and windy - but otherwise beautiful day.

Via Standard Route  Sucess!

Despite a horrible cold and strep throat I made the summit on our second attempt. I was not ready to leave Yosemite until I saw the much talked about views from the top. The day before afternoon storms prevented us from making the summit, so we got up extra early to make the hike before the long drive back to southern California. The views were beyond worth it! The climb would have been a walk in the park if I wasn't so sick, but definitely a fun hike with all the scrambling!

Dana Couloir

Climbed Dana Couloir with SMG, but descended the back side instead of the loose climb to the top.

Via Glacier Canyon  Sucess!

Great route with stunning views of Tioga and Conness on the way up & Lake Mono and Lyell on the summit. Encountered 3-4 snowfields on the way up; had fun glissading down these on the way back.

Dana couloir solo  Sucess!

Still kind of soft from the warm weather, but I found some exposed glacial ice and styrofoam for a bit of fun.
