Gaylor Peak - when nature was stronger that my plans
continued... I didn't sleep much in my tent that night. Not because I wasn't tired, just because the wind was shaking my tent all night long. A few times I was afraid that it might not hold up against it. At around 5 AM I decided it didn't make sense any more to keep laying awake in my sleeping bag any more but get up and do...

Mount Dana and Mount Gibbs - easy and high
Originally Vauacht and I had planned to pay a visit to Mount Lyell and Mount Mclure on this weekend. However, several constraints were not fulfilled (in particular the fact that an overnight stay of any kind at the Tuolumne Meadows is not really feasible any more after October 15) and therefore these plans had to be put to its...

Jobs Peak, Jobs Sister, Freel Peak Trilogy - A Tahoe Classic
After my "long" hike to Freel Peak a little less than a year ago, I knew I "had" to come back to also bag the close-by Jobs Peak and Jobs Sister. In addition I also still wanted to try the southern access to the 3 highest CA mountains around Lake Tahoe from Horse Meadow. When I saw the report from the "Mountainhiker" to...

Ebbetts - and Reynolds Peak - fun scrambling on a warm and sunny fall day
During my hike to Hawkins - and Pickett Peak, I saw a very interesting looking mountain somewhat south of me. At home I checked out udeuschle and found out that my newly declared goal was Reynolds Peak. After checking Bob Burds pages, I knew it would be an interesting scramble, in particular the last part all the way to the top....

Hurd Peak - Warm-up and appetizer in the Evolution Range
My fitness has somewhat suffered since I moved to California (I sit in cars too often ;-). So for my first hiking day on this extended WE near Bishop, I put something not too strenuous on my want-to-climb list. It should also help to acclimatise to the altitude for the main course on the next day. Today I wanted to climb Hurd Peak...

Mount Rose and Church Peak - an easy hike to some high peaks at Lake Tahoe
A. a friend visiting from Switzerland wanted to go hiking with me. His goal was to climb a high peak with a good view and it shouldn't be difficult, but a marked trail. I suggested Mount Rose with the option to also do a little side tour to the close by Church Peak. There's no marked path up to Church Peak, but judging from the...

Black Butte and 4th of July Peak: "hike and fish"
When I stood on Round Top and looked down towards Caples Lake I saw this interesting little volcanic fellow. At home I looked up what it was and immediately put "Black Butte" on my wish list. It would perfectly do for a short little scramble when I didn't have a full day for hiking at my disposal. On the webpages of Bob Burd I...

Mount Price and Agassiz - Crystal Range re-visited
After my first outing after moving to California to Pyramid Peak, I already new I would come back and revisit the Crystal Range in the Desolation Wilderness. The view from Pyramid Peak to Mount Agassiz and Mount Price (here) sparked my interest. Friends who visited from Switzerland wanted to go and do some scrambling in the...
