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.

What a view  Sucess!

Nice day hike to summit.
Next time I will take a map of Yosemite so I can identify all the peaks in the range.

Sort of on the use trail  Sucess!

Beautiful spring day and just enough snowmelt to make this a hike rather than a snowclimb. Lost the use trail on the way up and made this a bit more difficult than it needed to be.

Pics and trip report here.

Nice hike  Sucess!

For distance, acclimating and great scenery, this is an excellent introduction to Yosemite hiking.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Pretty hike up via May Lake with friends Bruce and Brian. Great views from the top of most of the other peaks in Yosemite.

the "standard" route  Sucess!

One of the best summit views in Yosemite.
Hiked up from the parking lot via May Lake. Didn't like the part where there was pavement; it was sort of boring. Left the used trail and had fun scrambling up to the summit, though it was extremely short (so short it was really nothing, but at least beat the pavement at the beginning of the hike >:) No summit register (none on Kaiser, either!)...

NE Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked up from May Lake on day 3 of a 7 day trip on a bluebird day. The wildflowers in the creek drainage were incredible!

Very Relaxing Peak  Sucess!

I fell asleep on the final plateau before the summit. Woke up halfway down the mountain. Dad said we made it to the top and that the last bit was a scary scramble. I guess I'll have to take his word for it. No issues with the altitude.

Birthday Peak  Sucess!

Another birthday spent in Tuolomne! Camped at May Lake with my wife, our 16 month old and my 73 year old father. All of us made it to the base of the final summit climb - I scrambled to the top with Sierra (16 mo old) asleep on my back. Perfect day.
