Day hike

A day trip from the bay to get a little fresh air. Nice hike, but the highlight of the day may have been the sandwich at Ferrarese's in Oakdale

Quick and fun scramble  Sucess!

A decent amount of snow still left along the banks of May Lake. Ascended via SE chute to summit meadow, then straight up to ugly antenna summit. More fun scrambling along the ridge towards Hoffman's Thumb.

Morning hike  Sucess!

Was driving to Mammoth for a weekend of peakbagging, decided to do Hoffman in the morning and North Peak in the afternoon to help acclimate for the weekend fun. Hoffman was crowded and is class 1. Incredible views though! Trip report is HERE.

Rematch  Sucess!

Much easier with an experienced teammate/leader who knew what we're doing. Did the less-traveled NE ridge (?) route. Tried some Class 4 stuff but I had to bail and move over to the left for an easier route.

Standard route

Went too late in the season, there was a ton of snow slush that slowed us down quite a bit. Got to May lake and a little bit past it, then got confused and ran out of time.

Geographic Center...  Sucess!

...Of Yosemite, more or less. A little bit of a steep hike toward the top, but still pretty easy.

South Slope  Sucess!

Following a visit to Tuolumne Peak, returned to May Lake and started up the standard route. Met four buddies, Jake, Ryan, Nick, and Jake who were on a road trip throughout the West from Ohio. Joined them for the trip up and down. Patches of snow starting at lakeside all the way to the top. Loved the view north and east along with the occasional rumblings of thunder from two storms nearby.
