I'm glad your trip worked out well. It sounds like you made a few mistakes but made up for them by just being tough and not giving up. Next time, bring sunscreen and less of everything else. Nice job!

Congrats!!! Takes a lot of motivation to do it solo in winter. Forget about plastic boots next time though; you never really need those in the Sierra. Some good leather mountaineering boots suffice.

Good job though you suffered a little. How did you get to 60 lbs for your pack?

Congrats- sounds like a good time! A fun climb that might still have some snow on it (likely higher up) would be San Gorgonio- I did it last January, & it was a lot of fun!
