Well I didn't make it to San Joaquin, but I survived so that is success to me. Turn-around point was peak just southeast of Two Teats. My altimeter said 10,800'. It was a beautiful day to solo ski tour somewhere I had never been. Snow conditions were less than desirable due to very hard breakable crust and "waves." I enjoyed the skin, hike, climb, ski and fall immensely.
Hiked from Minaret Vista Date Climbed: Oct 1, 2011
Hiked from Minaret Vista to Deadman Summit and then took the use trail to Two Teats and San Joaquin Mountain. Had champagne with a Sierra Club group on the return! Nice little buzz for the final leg back to Minaret Vista.
