Probably planning a trip to the eastern side of the Sierras and Tuolumne Meadows area of Yosemite.
I haven't done any actual climbing for a couple of years, but I am a very confident scrambler and I can climb at 5.9-10. Climbed several 14ers in CO including a traverse of the Maroon Bells, as well as the Grand Teton, Rainier, Hood, Baker, Shasta, and canyoneering. I'm planning to solo a few traverses but wouldn't mind some company if anyone had the same time frame. Probably 16 days including travel from Grand Junction, CO.
Death Valley N.P. (Badwater, Telephone Peak?)
Mt. Whitney, Russel, Muir
Mt. Langley (and Lone Pine?)
Palisade Traverse (Thunderbolt to Sill)
Banner Peak, Mt. Ritter, Thousand Island Lake
Devil's Postpile N.M.
Cathedral Range Traverse (incl. Matthes Crest N to S traverse)
Mt. Lyell and Maclure
Half Dome via Cloud's Rest (with Tenaya Peak, Tresidder, and Columbia Finger)
North Peak and Mt. Conness
