Route Climbed: SW Slopes Date Climbed: Apr 11, 2004  Sucess!

Cramponed up firm snow on the SW slopes--steep enough to be a little bit of a workout, but not enough to ever become spicy.

Route Climbed: Mt Rose Trail Date Climbed: 19-March-2004  Sucess!

The snow noted in the two posts below had consolodated nicely and I was able to get nearly to the Houghton/Rose saddle before having to put my snowshoes on.

The last 750 vertical feet are free of snow, making the last bit a scree scramble. Very windy on the summit, but otherwise a warm and clear day.

Route Climbed: Mt. Rose Trail Date Climbed: Feb 29th, 2004  Sucess!

Started at 9 am and found the 4 ft. of new snow difficult - even with snow shoes. Weather was good initially but deteriorated as we approached the summit. Whiteout conditions and 40+ MPH winds made for a short stay. Post-holed with the snowshoes through the wilderness meadow, seemed like an eternity to get back to the jeep trail. Made it back to the parking lot a 7 p.m. Tough day!

Long winter snowshoe up the Mt. Rose trail. Weather was nice early (in the morning) then turned fierce in the afternoon. On the summit, we had intense cold, high winds, and snowstorms.

Excellent snowshoe trip in the middle of winter. Very cold and windy at the top. I encountered some a snowmobiler and a couple of skiers before entering the wilderness but otherwise had complete solitude.

Route Climbed: Mount Rose Trail Date Climbed: 15th Feb 2004  Sucess!

Started out on jeep track ~10:45 am. Postholing for most of the way after leaving the jeep track and going into the wilderness area. Got caught in snow shower and high wind at summit ~3pm. Totally burnt out by the time we summited, didn't get back to jeep track till sundown at ~5:45pm. back to parking lot at ~7pm.

Snowshoe would have been great especially for the ~400 ft drop/gain after jeep track and gully leading up Mt Rose due to thick, rather powdery snow . If I were a smarter person. I would have 1) start earlier than 10:45 am, its a good 10 miles RT ! 2) rent snowshoes 3) use gaiters.

Leisurely hike to summit with my girlfriend. Loads and loads of wildflowers easily compensated for the somewhat hazy summit views. Hike report and lots of pics were here

2nd time to the summit, 1st time via the Tourist Trail. The view from the summit is maybe the best in the Tahoe Basin. Took 2:20 round trip on the latest ascent.

November 3, 2003

An uneventful trip up the tourist trail, only a dusting of snow in the shady spots, no wind to speak of. Not too many tourists

A clear day. Moderate to gusty winds at the summit. 15 degrees at he summit not counting the wind chill. The storm the night before dumped a good foot or more of snow at 8000 and above, that made it fairly difficult to put the route in.
