Smoky  Sucess!

Beautiful hike, but marred by smoke from multiple fires. From the summit, we could see the south shore of Tahoe, but the rest of the basin was filled with smoke.

Backpack  Sucess!

After dropping our car at Pyramid Creek TH, we got a ride over to Fallen Leaf Lake and started our 3-day traverse from the Tallac TH. With light weekend packs we made it up to Tallac to enjoy the sunset. We then hiked by headlamp down to Gilmore Lake and set up for the night. Over the next two days we bagged Dicks, Jacks, Price, Agassiz, & Pyramid before making it back to our car.

Great lake views  Sucess!

Have climbed this a handful of times in summer and winter. It is always magical up there. Great ski trip. Summer can be busy up there. The small rocks were too rough for my dogs pads.

Mt Tallac  Sucess!

Beautiful views, excellent weather. Snow encountered from around 7200 feet. Above 8000 feet patches of snow and patches without snow. On one segment about two thirds of the way up, snow was melting next to the boulders and then there was a steep drop off on the left, making the climb a little hairy. Many others were climbing without crampons, but I found their use invaluable on that segment.

First summit in the USA  Sucess!

It's A Scramble  Sucess!

I started out along the shores of Fallen Leaf Lake and bushwacked up the mountainside until I connected with the trail and ascended from there. 2.5 hours to summit and 2.0 hours back down. Tons of people up there and what a beautiful day and climb !

Gentle, easy climb with a big time view. Done it many times since then.

Long trip from Lake Aloha  Sucess!

Was camping with some friends in Lake Aloha region and decided to go for a "nice little day hike." Not the best idea I've ever had, but the view from the summit was epic. Can't wait to go back in winter conditions!
