These are relatively slow-paced day-hikes, suitable for beginners. Both peaks are class 2 (See the last page of Scree what that means). We will car-camp near Sonora Pass for one hike, then move to Ebbetts Pass for the other. This is an area of the Sierra that we don�t often explore, so the hikes should be enjoyable.

We'll attempt to climb several peaks ranging from the south to the west of Mt. Whitney on this 6 day trip. From Cottonwood Lakes trailhead, we'll go over New Army Pass and drop down to head north on the PCT or into the Sky Blue Lake basin, depending on which peaks people want to climb. The peaks are all class 1 or 2, except McAdie, which is class 3.

This is a technical trip requiring a high level of skill.

To avoid holiday traffic we'll leave the Bay Area on Wednesday, and hopefully celebrate July 4 on the summit of Disappointment Peak. Experience with ice ax, crampons, rope, and loose rock required for this strenuous class 4 couloir climb. We will drive home Saturday, or possibly climb Middle Palisade. Permit for 5.

This is an ambitious trip targeting two peaks in the Piute pass region over 3 days.

We will hike up to Piute pass and make camp at one of the lakes near there with a possible reconnaissance of the 3rd class route of Goethe peak in that afternoon. Saturday we will climb the previously scouted 3rd class route up Goethe and on the descent cross over on trails and cross country to do the easier 2nd class Pilot Knob returning to camp via headlamps. Participants should bring a good headlamp, GPS, and be self-sufficient for camping.
