Standard route  Sucess!

the last scramble up the ridge makes for some great pictures if you're on the summit looking down at your friends coming upwards.

East Ridge  Sucess!

East Ridge, second ascent of Yale. Only a handful of people on this route and not to many people on the summit, the benefits of starting early and doing a less popular route :)

Just went for an evening hike not intending to summit at all... weather was so nice I just couldn't turn around. Nice mountain and very cool summit!

Sick Hike  Sucess!

Bad case of food poisoning that didn't kick in until the descent... Learned a lot about what I can endure on a hike.

Fall's here!  Sucess!

Gorgeous foliage all around. Great hike. I used my microspikes on the descent from the summit to the ridge. Others were in tennis shoes and seemed fine, but I know they were slipping more than me. Can get around snowpatches up until that last summit approach from ridge.

Southeast Slopes  Sucess!

Tough hike, but enjoyed the short scramble to the summit. Not a great weather day, but the hail was refreshing.

Pleasure Cruise  Sucess!

Nice hike with some good friends. Lightning at the summit so not much summit lounging. Syndey's first!

With Becky on the way to the San Juans...

from denny creek th  Sucess!

Nice hike. Lost the trail coming out of the trees, as did everyone else it seems, so built a few cairns on the way down.

East Ridge from Avy Gulch  Sucess!

Scary day. Melting caused a rock collapse on the ridge near 12,700' that tossed me down about 15 feet. Bruised and scraped, but continued on to the summit. Camped at the saddle of UN12505 and Yale.

Avalanche Gulch- East Ridge  Sucess!

Climbed with Caroline & Otina. A LONG GRUELLING day of having to plow our own trench clear to the East Ridge. Then ANOTHER down off Mascot Peak in the dark making a loop back to the TH.
Great weather, great people. One of the better days this winter despite the physciality.

Great day hike.  Sucess!

Great day hike. I was able to hike all the way to the top without taking a break thanks to the box of oatmeal creampies consumed on the way up.
