Got up High Esmeralda, then on to DeRoux, Koppen, Malcolm & Johnson. By the time I reached Johnson, Esmeralda was soooo far away, amazing how far you can go in a day. First three peaks in trip report here: High Esmeralda
EastKing did all the route research and navigation work. I just came along for the ride. The precipitation was considerably lighter than the West side of the mountains and after awhile it was just snow which is a lot nicer than rain. A good summit considering we are into November now.
