Join us for this intermediate to strenuous trip up in the eastern Sierra to attempt to climb 3 peaks in three days. This area is of particular geological interest because of the dolomitic rock formations and the large number of hanging roof pendants, as well as the unique wildflower biomes that this geology supports.

Day 1: Hike in up McGee Creek 1200 feet, climb Mr. Baldwin, class 2, 3000' gain. (12,615'). Then camp at 9600 feet.

Start: 07/25/2010

Backpack over Shepherd Pass and up the Milestone drainage to camp (2 days). Climb Table from the southeast, class 3, move camp to JMT. Climb Cal Tech from the SE, move camp to Bighorn Plateau. Climb Barnard and Trojan via SW slope of Barnard, traverse to Trojan. Climb Tunnabora via Wallace Lake if time and start hiking out. Hike out. If we get ahead of schedule, maybe climb Picket Guard.
