Snowshoe'd up the east side. Very little snow. Started early with Reno twinkling in the dawn light below. Great views of Tahoe from the summit.
I try to get up Mount Rose at least a couple times a year.
This is pretty much an annual event for me - I never get tired of it.
Climbed the southeast face. Spent the night at the summit, with thoughts of traversing to Church Peak, and then on to Mt. Houghton and Relay Peak the following day. Wind picked up overnight and never let up the following day with sustain 40-50 mph and gusts of 80-90 mph forcing us to abort any other targets and descend quickly.
Hiked this a couple of weeks after S. Sister. Fantastic views at the top and met some cool peeps along the way. A great way to spend the day.
Great views and chilly on top even in August, though that might be blaimed on the 3am departure time from the parking lot. Worth the trip to get to watch the sun rise though, I suggest it as a variation to an already interesting trail.
Well, almost. the top ridge was pretty wind blow, but once you drop down off the ridge it was Great fun. in the 80's
so the plan was to ski rose... until we got up there and saw that rose had almost no snow coverage... instead, we skied nearby tamarack peak (9897'), which was an absolute blast!
First time in 7th grade, then I waited till I was almost 40 to do it again and again. Great after work hike in the summer.
Snowshoed up from Tahoe Meadows.
With Adam Helman, our fifth peak in three days. Nice way to end the trip.
Bagged it with Rad. Made it from trailhead to summit in 1 Hr 45 Mins. Great 360 degree view from the summit. Moderate amount of people. Took a 20 minute detour to bag neighboring Church Peak also.
Easy hike and lots of people doing this one, young and old, try running up and down to make it more of a hike. Trail is clear and easy to follow all the way to the peak. Lots of wild life on the top this month, From Reno Hangover crew, 2.5hr round trip.
Like a Disney movie - snow, woodland creatures and lots of puppies! Felt almost guilty - views are almost too stunning for such a fast & easy hike!
Pretty unusual for July but there's still some snow on the trail.

Skied right off the summit!
Generally followed the summer trail, but headed straight for the peak after some wandering in the main gully. Took two attempts and a nighttime exit, but was a beautiful trip.
Good weather and great views of Lake Tahoe.
Gorgeous day, awesome view, rarely used my ax. Tons of snowmobiles on the first two miles of the access road though.
