Cloudripper & Vagabond
Pipe hike!! Fall colours, remote like the moon, uphill both ways, great views of the Palisades, good for dogs!
Mount Emerson - Waterfall Route and homemade ice cream
A comfy chimney to a solid, exposed ridge. Fun!
Rodgers Peak (12,552 ft)
Big dayhike to a remote peak with rad views of Yosemite, Tuolumne, and Mammoth. Wildfire smoke.
Castle Peak, Basin Peak, Warren Lake
I did a fun loop of two peaks and an alpine lake near Truckee, in the north Tahoe area
After staring at this peak all winter while bouldering at the Buttermilks, we reverse the roles and get a view of the Peabodies from 6000ft above. Good for dogs!
North Peak (12,242ft)
A fun class 2 hike with views of Yosemite and beyond, great for cross-country beginners and expert dingos!
Mount Davis (12,303 ft)
Foiled by wildfire smoke from starting our backpacking trip, we accidentally agreed to a 27-mile car-to-car ascent of an obscure peak behind Ritter & Banner!
West Ridge of Conness
Fun day simul/soloing the west ridge and dodging afternoon hail & lightning. So good!
North Arete of Bear Creek Spire (13,726 ft) c2c
Car-to-car Bear Creek Spire on a bluebird Sierra Sunday ☀️
Hail on Red Slate Mountain
Mica's longest day yet, a scenic 20 miles through Sierra highcountry with snow-tumbling and stream-crossing.

I cannot blog, because I am a dog. But if I could, this is what I would say about my first peakbagging adventure.
