Winter Solo  Sucess!

Solo in dry winter conditions. Only one on top and a hell of a view with the winter air. Up the Lyon's Creek drainage. Bringing snowshoes next time...

Rocky Canyon/SE Ridge  Sucess!

Day trip with the Bay Area Mountaineers. Snow above 7500ft. Experienced a little post-holing but not enough for me to take the time to put on snow shoes (a couple others in our group did). Very windy up top.

2nd time up  Sucess!

lmost exactly one year from my first visit - once again up Rocky Creek, this time with my brother, snowshoes needed above 6700 feet to the top. There would have been no tracks to follow except a husband/wife team went up a couple hours before us except they made a wrong turn after crossing the creek and wound up too close to the eastern face and the steep snow, we had to correct the route and loop back, so anyone who goes up before the next snows may want to leave our tracks shortly after the creek crossing to cut down on the distance. Trip report is HERE

Pyramid Peak  Sucess!

Climbed Pyramid creek route up and Rocky canyon route down. Lots of smoke from the Rim fire on this day. There is a $5 fee for trailhead parking at the Pyramid creek trailhead and self issue permits are available along the trail about 3/4 mile when you reach the wilderness boundary

Rocky Canyon  Sucess!

July 2011, still almost total snow coverage for about 2,500'! What a snow year that was... Killer glissading on the return.

Summit via East Ridge  Sucess!

Many moons ago now. With group of 4 high school buddies. Plenty of snow, but a shorts and t-shirt kind of day. Sunny, calm until the summit, and excellent views.

Winter via Rocky Canyon  Sucess!

Hiked and snowshoed up to the top and back down the Rocky Canyon route, took 4 hours up and 2 1/2 hours down. Extremely windy on the last 500 feet to the top but otherwise a picture perfect day. Used crampons only near the bottom of the descent as teh warm weather resulted in some tricky ice near the creek. Trip report is at http://www.mountainhiker.org/trip_report.aspx?id=81

great workout/climb  Sucess!

I did this hike/climb august/2010 as well as december/2011. The most recent trip to the top, had minimal snow and some ice, but most of the trail was clear and easy to follow. The last 800 feet of rock was pretty much clear. It was quite a workout, but always worth it. Both times i took rocky canyon.

New Years Eve Hike  Sucess!

Following the unusual lack of snow in Tahoe, Ben and I did a summer-conditions ascent of Pyramid via the SE ridge on New Years. Great hike, weather, and views, brought me back in touch with my Sierra roots.

With BAM  Sucess!

My first outing with Bay Area Mountaineers. The original plan was to snowshoe Ralston but there was little snow so we went up Pyramid instead, via Rocky Creek. 14 people. Bright sun, clear air, fabulous views.
