Use Trail  Sucess!

We had a pleasant short hike and then were chased off of the peak by rain, hail and lightning.

Beautiful Views  Sucess!

Climbed from valley floor up North dome gully. Washington column, Indian Rock, camped on Mt Watkins. Then up Hoffmann Sunday, and out.

Tioga road not open yet, so had it all to myself.

Short hike that seemed longer

This hike was short in terms of distance, but went slowly because of the occasionally faint trail and frequent rock-hopping. Needed to use hands for the last 20 feet.

Quick afternoon climb  Sucess!

2 1/2 hours after leaving the apartment I was standing on top! Now that's what I call a quick one - was surprised at how quickly the summit arrived. Did both the shorter one above the lake then the true summit with the antennae.

A grand day out  Sucess!

Returned to climb Hoffman again, after realizing we'd climbed "Hoffman's Toe" (my term for the subsidiary summit above May Lake) two years ago. Had a great climb with spectacular views in all directions.

From May Lake  Sucess!

Needed an easy peak to hike up with my brother, who is not in peak bagging shape. Great views of the entire park from the top. A new register had been placed the previous day.

Combination Trail and Off -Trail  Sucess!

Went to the secondary summit first then up to the top. Gorgeous day, amazing views, tons of marmots (watch out for scat in your holds!). We were amused by the number of people in the parking lot who thought the little, scummy pond there was May Lake. We pointed them to the trailhead but most got in their cars and drove away. One lady asked, "Is there anything else to see here?" Since I hadn't been up yet, I didn't tell her about the incredible view up top.

Welcome to Tuolumne  Sucess!

We scrambled up some unknown route(s) up Hoffmann on our first day in Tuolumne this year. Great place and absolutely incredible views. Mostly 2nd class with a few class 3-4 moves along the way. Our original plan was to follow the ridge line to Tuolumne Peak but a combination of gathering clouds and our laziness made us stop on the summit plateau and take a great nap! :)
Enjoy the pet marmot on the summit!

South Slope via May Lake  Sucess!

Great hike with the g/f. Fantastically beautiful.

Peak Baguette

Route: South Slope via May Lake, Date: 05.19.07

Stopped 100 ft short of the summit due to a very late start... too much slipping & sliding to finish in the dark. Road to May Lakes TH was still closed, which added 4ish miles RT. Still lots of snow... melting snow over rocks in a few steep areas felt much like hiking up a greased pig, but with a bit less squealing.

Scrambled off route  Sucess!

Left trail just past May Lake, scrambling & wandering as saw fit. Went to the top of the secondary summit first, then the main summit w/ antennae. Perfect weather; incredible views.

Dayhike from May Lk. TH  Sucess!

Dayhiked from May Lk. TH. Originally planned to ascend Tuolomne Pk. as well, but did not due to fatigue.

talus hike  Sucess!

Didn't read up on any routes so just headed up from May Lake and hiked up through the talus and then onto the plateau. Came down via the trail.

Second!  Sucess!

Not sure exact date. Hit it from May Lake TH while on a 7 day backpack tour...May Lake was still plenty frozen at this time!

South face with a whoops  Sucess!

Well, the tuft of rock looked good from the May Lake trailhead, and the 3rd class was the most fun of the hike. We topped out on it, then saw the antenna of Hoffmann across the short plateau. Oopsie. 20 min. later we were at the summit.

Very enjoyable, easy hike to summit(for the 12yr old child i was)My parents made the summit as well but a good half hour after i did and very exhausted. Views at the summit are amazing looking over the north face. AFter the descent in blazing heat i went for a short swim in May lake.

My first Sierra peak and the beginning with a long lasting love affair with the High Sierra. Climbed it in '03. Climbed it again in '04 with my gal.
