Enter via George Creek, climb Trojan, Versteeg, Peak 4180+ and Barnard
from the Barnard/Trojan saddle, descend Barnard to Wallace Lake, climb Carl
Heller, go towards Tulainyo Lake, climb Morgenson, Carillon, Tunnabora

A dayhike of a nice 12k+ ft peak in the beautiful Saddlebag Lake area of eastern/northern Yosemite. This trip is suitable for fit and acclimated peak climbers who have had some experience in peak climbing.

The route will take us to some spectacular scenery and we will have views of the Yosemite high country including some nearby 13k and 12k ft peaks.

Starting time: We start walking at 7am, Saturday morning. Please be there, ready to hike.
Starting place: The right side of the dam over the Saddlebag Lake, almost at the very end of the Saddlebag Lake Road.

During the month of September, the aspens of Mineral King are clothed in gold. On day 1, starting in the early afternoon, we’ll hike 4 miles from the trailhead (7830') to our camp at Crystal Lake (10800'). On day 2, we’ll cross the tricky class 3 col (11500'), down to Amphitheater Lake (11100'), up to Needham Mtn (12520'), and finally returning to camp the way we came. On easy day 3, we hike out and drive home.
