Monarch Divide peakbagging Date Climbed: Jul 13, 2013
Quick Monarch Divide trip that included Goat, State, Kennedy, and Harrington. Unfortunately, broke my hand on easy talus after fun scramble up and down State. Didn't know it so went on to climb Kennedy later in the day and Harrington the next morning. Pictures
Summit Bivy after State Lakes Date Climbed: Jun 29, 2013
A nice hike and climb with the perfect bivy spot on the summit. Got really interesting the next day following the ridge from State Peak over to Marion and then down the South Fork Kings River... very wild and remote area! Spent half the time in the river due to thick brush, saw FIVE bears on the way out. Took 5 hrs to go 6 miles. Great adventure!
