This will be a relatively slow paced, three day climb of Mt. Thompson. Friday we'll hike in to Sunset Lake where we'll set up camp. Saturday we'll climb the peak, and on Sunday we'll hike out. We will be using ice axe and crampons so experience with them will be necessary.

This region of the Sierra is very rugged, with some great alpine scenery.

Co-leader wanted.

This is a great introduction to climbing Sierra peaks. The views from Mt. Morgan (S) are spectacular, with Bear Creek Spire, Mt. Humphreys, and the Pioneer Basin in sight. On Saturday morning, we will meet at Rock Creek Lake in the Eastern Sierra, hike to Francis Lake, and set up camp. On Sunday, we will climb the ridge to Mt Morgan at a moderate pace, return to camp, and head back to the trailhead. The peak is quite high, so you should be in good condition and have spent some recent time at altitude.
