Top-down view of the 1500+ ft West Face of Mount Conness. The route begins in a broad chute with a bouldery run-out. Midway up the face, the chute splits around the prominent rib seen here with the thumb-shaped tower. I took the rightward (southern) fork, which follows the c-shaped scar seen in the middle of the photo. It think the route is supposed to cut over to the West Ridge (photo-left) for the last 100 feet, but it was hard for me to understand exactly where I was at this point, so instead I climbed directly up to the summit ridge via the dihedral/crack featured in the bottom-right quadrant of the photo. That might have made it tougher for me, but at any rate I quickly reached a point where I had no comfortable chance of retreating and finding easier passage (2020-08-03).

South summit of Twin Peaks, where the summit register was located, taken from the north summit of Twin Peaks. Mount Conness is right behind. Left of Conness one can find Mount Ritter and Banner Peak. Right of Conness one can see the highest ridge of Yosemite NP, with Mount Lyell and Mount Maclure. Later we would traverse the ridge from the summit to Virginia Peak, on the lower right of the photo (2020-10-18). Photo by Yao-Min Chen.
