North Peak, 12,242', class 2

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.
Route: From the starting point, we will walk across the dam to the west shore of the lake and make our way past a beautiful waterfall to a saddle on the ridge line and will scramble over class-2 talus to the summit.

Preference will be given to relative new comers to the PCS.

We will take 6 participants (besides the two leaders).

Since this is an official trip, all participants will be required to sign a waiver.

All participants must contact the leader(s) to be signed up and if they have not climbed with the leader before, provide some information about their recent climbing experience/fitness/acclimatization.
