Climbed with chicagotransplant. Another great day in the Sangres! The road to Medano Pass from the east is steep but fairly easy except for one very rocky section. The water hole on the spur road to Medano Lake TH (described on this page) was indeed very deep - deeper than it looked. Be careful!
Climbed with Sarah, Dominic and Pete as part of a 4 peak loop. Started at the Medano Lake TH, then went up a side drainage to PT 12883, over "Medano Peak", then Herard and finished by going over PT 12925 and descending back to the trail about 20 yards from one of the creek crossings.
