Start on Saturday morning from Saddlebag Lake to dayhike one of the most striking peaks of the Yosemite high country by the east ridge. This route is mostly class-2 with some class-3 sections. We will stay below the crest of the east ridge to skirt the class-4 (and harder sections). We will descend by the 'usual' class-2 route via the notch between Conness and White.

It is recommended that you drive up on Friday evening to be ready in time for an early start on Saturday morning.
