Northwest Slope  Sucess!

From Tioga Pass Entrance Station, across the meadow with almost half the route through the woods interrupted by snow. Stayed on route to just below the plateau but then freestyled to the top, partly over snow, partly one stepping-stone at a time. Passed one other soul on his way down but the two of us were the grand total to the top for the day. The wind died for a bit and a little bird joined me to add to the experience of the incredible panorama.

So Many Cairns  Sucess!

Many misleading cairns on the easiest route. You'll save time if you just pick your line up the slope and go. Great views and worth your time.

Cross Training - Up Dana  Sucess!

Up and down Mt. Dana with my bike-racing family - a little cross training between race seasons. Up the West Route from Tioga Pass. In a word... Awesome!

From Tioga Pass  Sucess!

Tagged it on the drive out after camping trip. We were the first on the summit that day, which made it special. Stupendous views in all directions. Short, intense hike was surprisingly pleasurable.

With Mike Chen. A light snow cover added to the fun. Gorgeous views.

Nice hike, and didn't see anyone on the way up on a saturday morning which surprised me. Continued on to Mt. Gibbs.

First time ove 10k elevation  Sucess!

Pretty steep climb up talus, rocks and boulders but made it up in 2 1/2 hours. Fantastic views. Worried about elevation but had no problems other than having to rest more often on the way up.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Nice jaunt through the wilderness to the summit. Only took 4 hours to go up and down. Really great views from the top. Kind of crowded though.

great hike/climb  Sucess!

I hiked to the top in sept/ was a great hike, the route about 2/3 of the way up is pretty much "pick your route" since it is mostly broken rock and talus, but it sure felt great to summit. You can see quite a lot from up there.
