Nice hike  Sucess!

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

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.

S Ridge via Hoffmann Creek  Sucess!

Followed the S Ridge via Hoffmann Creek drainage. A few class 3 moves to stay on/near the ridge crest in a couple places. Descent via May Lakes trail. Got to hike the Snow Flat road out as I couldn't hitchhike back to my vehicle/120, so guess I started too early as none of the other hikers had made it back to their cars yet.

From Hoffmann Creek  Sucess!

Climbed on the whim on the way out after a trip to Parsons and Vogelsang. Didn't realize there was a trail from May Lake, so hiked up the ridge by the parking area and then up the steep slabs above Hoffmann Creek. Not a bad route actually, but took the trail to May Lake down.

Choose your own adventure  Sucess!

Came out to Yose for some dayhiking along Tioga road to acclimate the weekend before starting the John Muir Trail. After a morning around Gaylor lakes came over to Hoffmann in the afternoon. I loved the pile or rocks by the summit - make it easy or more difficult, your choice. I chose harder on the way up, easy on the way down. Wheee! Watch out for the evil marmots on the summit.

May Lake and Off-Trail  Sucess!

From SW edge of May Lake, we ditched the trail and scrambled straight up toward the two unnamed(?) granite formations below the saddle. Mostly Class 2; though, I summited the left formation which involved some Class 3.
