Ultralight overnighter out of Twin Lakes. From bivy at Rodgers Lake went to Benson Lake and left the PCT at ~8400ft. Climbed The SE slope to the notch in the NE-ridge. Used the ledge system through the NE face to gain the summit plateau. Hiked out through Kerrick Canyon and Peeler Lake in rain and snowfall. Beautiful fall colors. One of the most beautiful areas in the Sierra.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
