Loved it!  Sucess!

Great hike, awesome views and a trail that was easy to follow. The rock scrambling to the summit was great too.

Beautiful day without a cloud in the sky. Got to the summit around 10, and stuck around for an hour.

I'll try again in summer!

I was just up there two days ago via the east ridge and after a recent snow dump the ridge was way too dangerous to attempt. Massive couloirs, 100mph winds, etc. We were postholing and bushwhacking all the way up to the ridge so we definitely got a phenomenal work out anyway! I will try again in summer or maybe go up the southwest ridge.

2 in 2 days  Sucess!

Baaa. After summitting Mt. Elbert yesterday, then partying with a bunch of hippies in the woods near the Denny Creek trailhead in the wee hours of the morning, I did Yale as a run-up with only a small water bottle. Virtually no views thanks to persistent fog.

Too much scree  Sucess!

Very hard day, west up east ridge and couldn't get out of scree. Started down southwest slopes and got into another scree slope. The views were amazing though.

East Ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful climb up the east ridge. If you don't mind sacrificing a slightly longer day for no crowds and some decent exposure with fun scrambling, you have to take this route.

Silver Creek  Sucess!

That ridge must hold the world record for false summits. Crappy conditions below timberline (mud bog with slush-drifts), but nice day otherwise. Trip report
