Nice day with dad. His last time up here was 22 years ago.

Great for the Views  Sucess!

I was told the day we did it was the anniversary of John Muir looking up to Dana from below and refering to the area is the "Range of Light." Although we made good time it really felt like I was going in slow motion all the way up. It made my birthday the best I have had in a very long time.

Nice Hike  Sucess!

Nice, if steep, hike to the top. Best part was approaching the top and meeting a family on way down: Me: "How far to the top?" Them: "You're close." Me: "Define 'close'." Them: "One minute." Me: Right answer!" Great views of Mono Lake and eastern half of Yosemite NP.

Bay Area Hangout  Sucess!

Amber and I were first up that day as far as we could tell. People started to filter on the the summit about 20 min after us. Almost everyone was Bay Area so we joked it was the new lunch hangout. Awesome view! Our first Sierra Peak!

Verry Coll  Sucess!

Very cool. Did Boundary Peak in the early morning and headed off to do Mt. Dana in the evening. About reached my limit physically but the absolutely gorgeous view from the top of Dana made all the pain
worth it. This is definitely a must for Yosemite lovers.

Up the Couloir  Sucess!

My first ice climb, and it was a blast! Sad to see the snow melting out so quickly though...

Route Climbed: Dana Couloir Date Climbed: July 19, 2009  Sucess!

climbed with fbagni; conditions were more or less ice, but the entire couloir is melting out and I predict it will be gone in <10 years. We did it in 5+ pitches in ~3 hrs and afterward pulled ourselves up to the summit. A good day out, but had on the body when you are out of shape.

Tourist Route  Sucess!

Quick hike up from the kiosk. Great early season conditioning hike with nary a soul in sight. Beautiful day with unbelievable views. Can't beat summer in the Sierra. Hopefully the first of many more this summer.

summer hikin'  Sucess!

this was my 2nd time up Dana, this time with my girlfriend. Heading to the east side, we stopped at Tioga Pass to make the fun jaunt up Dana. We were early and enjoyed the summit to ourselves, before the gangs hit the trail. Spectacular views of the Sierra and Yosemite. Neat, although fragile, vegetation on the lower section.

First Lesson  Sucess!

Said "goodbye" to Ferdinand at the Tioga Sta. and headed for the top. This was the first peak I ever climbed, really something for a kid from Texas. We me a retired couple also climbing which also was something to me as at the time I didn't think "old" people did that. But it also made me decide that I wasn't going to wait til I retired to start climbing mountains. So I haven't.

The Couloir  Sucess!

Gnarly snowboard descent via the couloir. My buddy lost his edge and nearly bashed his head open on the rocks. It was slushy going in but then got shaded and super icy. Would love to do it again with full sun.
