Route Climbed: Rocky Canyon/SE Ridge Date Climbed: January 7, 1987  Sucess!

A mild winter ascent! Stashed snowshoes at tree-line. Hiked hard pack on up to the summit. We carried plastic garbage bags up and, on the way down, climbed in for some wicked descending fun (more like "death burritos"). Clear winter days make for incredible vistas.

Route Climbed: Rocky Canyon/SE Ridge Date Climbed: October 28, 2003  Sucess!

This was the steepest three mile hike I've done but well worth it. Great Fall colors. Saw no one on trail or summit during the day.

Route Climbed: Rocky Creek Date Climbed: June 03  Sucess!

Great spring day. Snow level about 2/3 up route. Only challenge was doing this late on a sunny day and then trying to cross Rocky Creek while stayting dry.

Route Climbed: West Ridge from Lake Sylvia Date Climbed: August 1992  Sucess!

My first summit in the Tahoe area, shortly after I moved to the Bay Area to start law school. Needless to say, I got hooked on bagging peaks in northern california :-)

We reached the summit around 3PM. Met another snowshoer coming up from the Horsetail Falls trailhed. Still lots of snow above 7000'.

Route Climbed: Rocky Canyon Date Climbed: May 18, 2003; Apr 17, 2004  Sucess!

There must have been close to a dozen people up on the summit when I was up there the first time--snowshoers, skiers, snowboarders... The next time, I climbed the peak amidst low cloud cover and snow showers, with about 50ft of visibility at the summit. There was no one else up there that time.

Route Climbed: Horsetail Falls/ East Face Couloir Date Climbed: Several times between 82 & 84  Sucess!

This was my first mountain I ever climbed! We climbed it many times in between 82 & 84, always using the Horsetail Falls/ East Couloir route from Twin Bridges. I guess we always used this route because it was short & challenging to us at the time.

Route Climbed: Rocky Canyon Date Climbed: July, 2001  Sucess!

This was my third trip up Pyramid. An otherwise perfect day slightly marred when I caught some ass@#$% trying to steal my hiking poles where I had stashed them at the base of the talus slopes. I first climbed it when I was 17.

Route Climbed: Lake Aloha side Date Climbed: June 1988  Sucess!

This was my 1st mountain peak, looking back on it now, it was cake! Nice view at the top, can see Lake Tahoe. It has a warm place in my heart, since it was my 1st.
