Thanks for the extra info Clydascope! I actually took the Benton approach when I did it in '05 but didn't have time to add the route when I posted the page so I derived the Bishop route from Andy Zdons' Desert Summits. I'll get it in there soon and check out the mining history too. Great that you live out there! I usually and get out to the Eastern Sierra several times (awesome territory!) and Death Valley every year from Marin County. Later man! - Windsor.
