Day 2 of the 2006 Sierra Challenge. A very enjoyable traverse from Clyde Minaret via Eichorn Minaret. Michael had the best scrambling of the three. Trip Report

Climbed with Bob, Romain and Michele to memorialize Walter "Pete" Starr Jr., a mountaineer who died while climbing the NW Face Of Michael Minaret on August 1933. We placed a bronze plaque on the gendarme between Eichorn and Michael Chute. Although we did not reach the summit of MM, we felt the goal we set out to accomplished was the "pinnacle" of the entire climb. Endless thanks goes out to those who encouraged us to celebrate this man's life and achievements. A renewed respect for men like Norman Clyde, Jules Eichorn and Walt Starr Jr and for what they achieved in life and in the mountains. My deepest personal thanks goes out to the 'Gilligans' Island' crew. I will NEVER forget this!



Cheers,

Dave
