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.

Long time ago  Sucess!

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).

Winterish Ascent  Sucess!

No snow over Tioga pass, so we parked and climbed the peak. We encountered very very little ice or snow on the way up. We hit the top, came back down, then walked across Tenaya Lake. Strange season.

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.

1983  Sucess!

Moved to California and started grad school at Berkeley in fall 1983 -- spent the last weekend before classes in Yosemite, including climbing Dana.

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.
