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.
great views from the top
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.
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!
With the idiots. So much fun.
Did the typical route from Tioga Pass.
Short day hike on a brisk morning with Todd & Robbie.
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.
Hiked it with Amy, Laura P, and Dave G. Fun day out!
A good warm-down after the day-hike of Tyndall the previous day. Made it up and down in 2.5 hours.
Took the west slope....great view from the top!
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.
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.
I hiked to the top in sept/2010...it 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.
great views, nice loop with Gibbs
beautiful day, went via northwest side. no snow or anything
On or around this date, walked up the trail. Said hi to the marmots.
Would like to say that photographing the spectacular views kept me just shy of the summit. Naah -- just ran out of gas. (But the views ARE stunning).
