Summer 2007 R.I.P.

The Boothe family was trekking through Kings Canyon National Park, while I was climbing with friends in LeConte Canyon. I rendezvoused with the Boothes in Big Pete Meadow, and we spent two days returning to civilization via Bishop Pass. Click here for photographs. Highlights include:

Notes on Round Top Peak 10,381′

Kari and I enjoyed Labor Day in the Mokelumne Wilderness. Click the image below for more photographs:

Obscure notes for the future:

  • There are two trailheads: Woods Lake and Carson Pass. The trail from Woods Lake is slightly shorter, but the trail from Carson Pass requires less climbing.
  • Winnemucca Lake has plenty of camping spots, but the sites look heavily used. I think Round Top Lake has better (and more secluded) camping.
  • The best swimming spots are along Lake Winnemucca’s west shore.
  • The final climb to the summit is class-3 rock scramble.  This climb can be scary, especially with strong wind.
