NW slope and SW ridge from Tenaya Lake  Sucess!

Started at the beach, climbed NW slope, and eventually found a chute to get to SW ridge (one or two class-3 moves were needed in the chute), then an easy walk to the top. About 2.5 hours on the way up. Used a field of huge boulders, just SW of the chute, on my way down from the ridge.

NW Buttress  Sucess!

Climbed with a team of five. It was a good day and a great weekend. We did Tenaya canyon the day before.

NW Buttress  Sucess!

Team of five, overestimated the route, brought too much stuff

SW slope from Sunrise Lakes  Sucess!

Easy ascent from South slope after going cross country to slabs below Mildred Lake from Sunrise Lakes. Descended down meadows to Clouds Rest Trail. This latter part was a bad idea due to extreme mosquito pressure! The route itself is easy.

NW Butt solo  Sucess!

Fun scrambling, the 5.7 finish was lichen covered but otherwise good. Used this route to approach Matthes and finished the day with Cathedral. An excellent idea.

NW Buttress Solo  Sucess!

First solo whilst on chemo. Had the mountain to myself until I met a large bear on the way down.

West Face  Sucess!

Mostly a slog, but some interesting options getting to the SW ridge after the tree ledge is gained. I looked for the class 3 chute described in the route description, but I don't think I found it.

Northwest Buttress  Sucess!

Climbed Northwest Buttress route with Ryan. Mostly simulclimbing with exception of the couple of upper pitches. Nice rock, beautiful weather, great views!

NW Buttress Free Solo  Sucess!

With Kazu.

Passed one roped party and had the rest of the route and summit to ourselves.

FUN as always!!!!!

Took the direct exit instead of the class 4 traverse this time. Amazingly easy.

NW Butt  Sucess!

Enjoyed a very hot day on this fun and easy route! Simul-climbed much of it until the top 2-3 pitches. Very popular route, but for good reason!

South Slope  Sucess!

My route to the top: Leave Sunrise Trailhead, wade across Tenaya Creek, go 7 to Clouds Rest, come back 5 to the split for Sunrise HSC, go 2+ to Sunrise Lakes, up half the ridge to the north to a traverse to Mildred Lake, up the south slope of Tenaya to the top. Down by way of the Southwest Ridge and such. Like most folks I'd driven by this luscious piece of rock countless times and the view down on Tenaya Lake was more than I could've imagined.

via NW Buttress   Sucess!

14 pitches of fun without pros: I had a rack on me and my buddy carried the rope. Never placed anything and the rope remained on his back. I was feeling comfortable and just kept going up. Before we knew it, we were standing atop. :O

It was awesome, but felt almost too short. Fantastic view and I really did enjoy the climb - LOVE the low angle slab!! Next time though I will solo it without all these "dead-weight"...

Almost ashamed to say..  Sucess!

I climbed free-solo. It's totally against my climbing philosophy to take un-needed risks, but it felt right that day. Fun, easy climbing.

NW buttress solo  Sucess!

Soloed the buttress with the 5.8 exit variation. That section actually felt like climbing for 20 ft. Cool route.

Northwest Buttress  Sucess!

With Dennis in 3 hours. Got stuck behind 4 parties and passed them in the headwall pitches. Fantastic route to simul!

Fun Afternoon  Sucess!

Took the path to south of lake and just went through the trees up to the rock. Found path from there. Great clear views. We took our exchange student from Sweden with us and she loved the summit. Very worthwhile hike. Was planning to do Watkins after but the rest of my group was done, oh well.
