Stanislaus- and Sonora Peak
Stanislaus- and Sonora Peak are two relatively easy accessible peaks from Sonora Pass. They are both pretty high, with Sonora Peak actually being the highest peak of the Sierra Nevada north of Sonora Pass. I had plans to climb these two mountains at the end of September last year already. However, I miserably failed due to the...

Well, well, well, Mount Elwell
For this day I had 3 concrete goals: Climb Mount Elwell, test my newly acquired trail running shoes and catch some fish for dinner. I didn't think that I would successfully be done with all of this shortly after 2 PM already... Climbing Mount Elwell didn't seem like a big alpine challenge since there are easy accesses from the...

Of melting snow, "falling horsetails" and a pyramid
The first time I saw the Horsetail Falls, I wasn't all that impressed. Due to the drought then and the late season, the waterfall had nothing but a tiny bit of water trickling down from the Desolation Valley. The current situation with record amounts of melting snow should give the falls a much more impressive character. In...

Leave it or ski Leavitt?
In Northern California we had an unusually long lasting period of very hot weather for more than a week now. The high temperatures were up to 110°F (43°C)! Luckily where we live, we have two options to flee the heat, we either go to the Pacific Coast where temperatures are always cool even during the hottest days in the summer,...

Beaver Lake
Started out from the Herring Cove trailhead around 5pm. Headed up to Beaver Lake, and followed the trail clockwise around the lake. The trail had some steep sections, but was in excellent condition. This trail has it all: gushing streams, a tall waterfall, old growth forest, a lake, mountain scenery, muskeg... Met a couple...

MTB-Lungo lo Schuylkill River e altre storie
Il costante pulsare dei motori dell’aereo accompagna la mia breve notte insonne. Vago con la mente tra mille pensieri rivedendo il cortometraggio di questa vacanza oltreoceano. A tratti qualche scuotimento del gigante e un’occhiata al display mi ricorda che siamo a 11.000 m, che fuori ci sono -47°C e che il vento contrario...

Mount Verstovia
Drove past the trailhead off Sawmill Creek Rd on the first pass. There wasn't much space to park, but I managed to squeeze into an open spot. Followed the trail up to the "Picnic Rock" (which some guides call "Mt Verstovia", contrary to most maps)... The trail was steep, with plenty of roots and rocks, but in good condition,...

Slide Mountain - "backcountry skiing" in the Mount Rose Ski Resort
Even though almost all of the ski resorts in the Sierra Nevada are closed for the season by now, a lot of places still have more than enough snow left for skiing. I usually avoid ski resort not only because the day passes in the ski resorts around Lake Tahoe are outrageously expensive (typically > 100$), but also because I...

Round Top from NE - Elephants Back
I had plenty of real life views and took many many pictures of Round Top in the last few weeks. Due to the massive amounts of snow this area got during this winter, I thought of an approach to the top from northeast. I did not find any reports in the www about such a line, but judging from my inspection last week from the top and...

Round Top via Crescent Moon Couloir
If I had to name "my favorite peak" in my new home, it would have to be Round Top. Not only because I have been on top of it 3 times already, but also because it offers quite a few interesting routes, in summer and winter and with it's >10000ft altitude a very nice view as well. One of the little more adventurous routes to the...
