A very long two day trip from Twin Lakes. Camped at the highest lake north of the peak (very scenic and warm enough for swimming), then up to watch the sunrise on the summit. Then over to Volunteer and Piute, rained pretty much the entire way out.
Route Climbed: Traverse from Volunteer / West Slopes (descent) Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2005
Volunteer-Pettit dayhike out of the Virginia Lakes TH, a tough outing. Not necessarily the most aesthetic peak from almost any vantage point, but the views were superb. Last person to sign in was up there exactly a year ago to the day.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
