Tuolomne Meadows (Lyell/Maclure Saddle)  Sucess!

Climbed Lyell and Maclure in one day. Attempted and failed same trip 1 month earlier. Had the whole mountain to myself. Left Tuolomne meadows at 3am, made it to Lyell-Maclure saddle by 8am, off both summits by 1pm and back to the car around 7pm. Got caught by a nasty thunder, hail and rain storm on the way down and hurt my ankle pretty bad so the return was slow.

dayhike lyell-maclure  Sucess!

After catching someone trying to walk off with my axe and crampons (thiefs in the sierras???) I tagged Maclure before a painful hike back to Toulumne.

From Lyell-Maclure Saddle  Sucess!

Tagged it after Lyell. Loose class 3, but went quick. Good views of glacier and the bergschrund.

Lyell Glacier, southest ridge  Sucess!

After bagging Lyell, headed up the increasingly steep and loose southeast ridge. Let fly a number of rockfalls but other than that it was good scrambling. Summit register still in place; mine's the 2nd entry.

From Lyell/Mac col. Great traverse. Climbed with a wonderful SPS group. Left a new register at the top. This register lives on the peak. Please do not remove it. : ]

Traverse from Lyell

A nice rock scramble after coming off Lyell. Views were spectacular, got caught in a brutal thunder/hail storm on the way out. Sierra Challenge 2006(alt peak).

Route Climbed: Southeast Ridge Date Climbed: Sept. 23, 2001  Sucess!

Came from our camp below Donohue Pass, crossed the Lyell Glacier to the Lyell-Maclure col and summited Mt. Lyell first. Then back down to the col and picked up Maclure's SE Ridge to the top. I remember having to do a lot of boulder hopping at the beginning of this route, but towards the top the narrow rock ridges created some fun.

Route Climbed: Southeast Ridge Date Climbed: August 1, 2004  Sucess!

Quite a bear to dayhike in combo with Mt Lyell! Day #2 of the Sierra Challenge. The class 3 scramble along the knife-edge ridgeline was fun, but the talus slog to get to it was a pain - perhaps it would have been better as a spring snowclimb/scramble

Camped in the canyon downstream from the Ireland Lake Trail. Hit Lyell earlier in A.M. Climbed SE Ridge Rt. and descended the South Face Rt. Then headed over to do Donohue Peak before descending down Kuna Creek to camp. Great day.
