We leave from Lake Sabrina TH near Bishop and attempt to climb Thompson-13494, Point Powell-13360, Wallace-13377, Haeckel-13418 peaks. Be prepared for snow - ice axe, crampons, and helmets required. Be prepared for spring conditions including snow camping.

Day 1: Hike in from Lake Sabrina 1500 gain, 5 miles to Hungry Packer Lake. Climb Haeckel & Wallace, return to camp. Day 2: Climb Thompson, 3000 gain, 6 miles RT back to camp. Day 3: Climb Point Powell, 3000 gain, 6 miles RT. Day 4 - Hike out or stay for bonus peaks, Gilbert-13106 and Johnson-12871.

Participants must be in excellent physical condition, skilled in use of ice axe & crampons. Note that this is a “Lisa” trip, meaning you should expect a fast pace (extreme effort) to do all these peaks. Participants do not have to do all the peaks. Fishing or reading is an option for days off.
