Driving through Tuolumne Meadows one cannot but admire the surrounding peaks. Yet we are often too rushed to reach mountains in faraway places. This time we will stop and enjoy the ones nearby. To add to our fun, we have chosen peaks that require a bit of technical climbing. To be able to use ropes and climb as a group, the technical section is limited to one short pitch of class 4 or so.

Start: 08/28/2010 8:00 am

Day 1: Start at Onion Valley, go over Kearsage Pass, head south on the John Muir Trail, camp near Golden Bear Lake - 14 miles.
Days 2 and 3: Climb Keith and Bradley.
Day 4: Pack up and return to the trailhead.
We may throw in University for good measure, depending on time, weather, and the desires of the participants and whims of the leader. The trek to Center Basin is quite long, but the trip should be easy from a technical point of view.

In March 2010, Enrique Rodriguez left sunny sea-level San Francisco
for the icy slopes of Mt. Everest, the highest mountain in the world.
With cold-weather resilience developed over years of waiting for the
school bus in New Hampshire and winter camping skills honed high in
the alpine zone of Mt. Washington, Enrique will discuss his 1st
Himalayan expedition in pursuit of his 7th "Seven Summit."

Friday we'll hike up to Treasure Lakes where we'll set up camp and enjoy the scenery. Saturday we'll split up with the faster party heading for Mt. Gillbert. After a successful visit to the summit, they will join the slower party relaxing on Mt. Johnson, before all head back to camp. Then on Sunday we'll hike back out.

This will be a relatively slow-paced trip (for the slower party), and the climbing will for the most part be easy., so it should be appropriate for relative beginners who have done a bit of climbing.
