Climbing in the Palisades region. This will be a strenuous 4-5 day trip to climb these 3 peaks. Depending on snow, plan on bringing ice axe, crampons, and bear canisters. We will start at Glacier Lodge and hike in up the South Fork of Big Pine Creek to Lake Elinore, or higher in the scree field near Lake 11,744. Climbers must be in good condition, comfortable on class 4 rock. Day 1, hike in to Lake Elinore or higher, 2500' gain, 6 miles. Day 2, climb Temple Crag via Contact Pass, class 3.

Two mountains with the same name, just ten miles apart, named for two different Morgans: one a sheepherding pioneer, the other a tycoon founder of the Southern Pacific Railroad. We’ll backpack up to Davis Lake, climb Mt Stanford N, traverse a tricky ridge to Mt Morgan N, descend the sandy slopes back to Davis Lake, teleport to Francis Lake, climb Mt Morgan S, and return the way we came.
