Close call with lightning  Sucess!

With my parents, climbed the peak in the normal way from the Denny Creek trail head. A fairly short, but steep hike up this trail. The real excitement came when a thunderstorm hidden to the north became painfully obvious when reaching the summit. We ran off the summit; a couple of near misses nearly took us all out, but we made it.

Long with snow  Sucess!

Climbed with charlie on Saturday, starting at 4AM, summit around 12PM, back to car by 5PM. Deep snow drifts and a difficult to follow trail due to previous hikers footprints in the snow made for a long, confusing day out.

Traverse  Sucess!

Went up the East Ridge and down the Southwest Slopes, which made for a really nice tour of the mountain.

Fresh Snow  Sucess!

We camped at the fork, and so were the first ones on the mountain. Fresh snow had fallen, so we blazed the trail up the last 1000 ft. Snowshoes were extremely helpful.

Yale SW Slope  Sucess!

Typical Sawatch Peak, but with a pleasurable top out and spectacular weather for being among the giants.

Up E Ridge, Down Denny Ck  Sucess!

The E ridge was a nice walk (and uncluttered with people). My hopes re getting a lift down the Cottonwood Pass rd from the Denny Ck TH back to my car at the Avalanche Gulch TH were largely forlorn. Finally got a ride when I was about half a mile from Avalanche Gulch. I didn't realize how close I was, and felt bad for stopping the guy....

From Denny Creek  Sucess!

Beautiful day in the mountains with Greg and Colette. Loved this mountain but don't leave anything unattended when you begin the scramble. The marmots take whatever is available.

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 :)
