Hey, I love hiking the Ventanas! Has anyone ever checked out the VWA forum? Anyhow, Ive done Palo Corona, Post Summit, Pico Blanco, Mt Carmel, and Anderson Peak. Post Summit was cool, I decided to challenge myslelf and hike up there when it snowed (its extremely rare for it to ever snow there, maybe this was the only time in like 20 years). I tried to cross country to Mt Manuel, but it began to snow, as well as the snow already in the ground I never thought Id get caught in Big Sur during a snow storm!
Id love to do more hiking out there, but I need a parter. Im not exactly a mountaineer/ vertical climber, but love hiking, and love to be challenged.
Has anyone heard of /climbed Kandlebinder, near the VDC? Theres a little known shortcut that leads to it, involving some bushwacking that I would love to do.
If anyone still wants to do some hiking in the area, feel free to email me, email@example.com
