Goddard Divide (High Sierra from East Side)

Goal: 
Haeckel, Wallace, Fiske, Huxley, McGee, Black Giant, Solomons, Thompson, Powell, Goode

We’ll trek for a week through the breathtaking Evolution region of the Sierra Nevada, backpacking to infrequently visited rockbound lake basins and climbing challenging summits. We’ll make a loop from our trailhead at Lake Sabrina (near the town of Big Pine), packing cross-country across the Goddard Divide at Wallace Col, spending an average of two nights at each camp, and ultimately returning to our trailhead with a cross-country pack back across the Goddard Divide at Echo Col. We’ll be challenged by the ruggedness of the terrain, the high elevations (up to 13500 feet), the weight of our packs with a week’s food, and the mountaintops of class 2 and 3 difficulty. None of the summits require the use of a rope. This trip has a maximum of six participants.
