dshoeRoute Climbed: Alta Peak Trail Date Climbed: 08-99  Sucess!

Nice peak! One of the highest on the western side of Sequoia NP. Did this hike as a day hike. The trail, from Wolverton to the summit, is about 8 miles one way. Don't remember how long it took me to do the route, but do remember the weather conditions distinctly! Very heavy thunderstorms moved in as I neared the upper slopes of the peak. I debated to turn back, however, I was so close, so I kept going. Made the summit in nearly zero visability! Bad part about it is that I decided to go ultralight weight for the hike, and only took a plastic rain poncho instead of the Gore-Tex! A very memorable experience, to say the least. Never saw the summit register that is supposed to be on top.......................Oh well, guess that's a reason to go back and do it again someday!

Very enjoyable dayhike on the day before the year's first big snowstorm. Saw nobody after Panther Gap, but had to rush from the summit at 2:30, because the time changed on this day, and we would lose sun before 5:30.
