Did the whole range (minus Moriah). Good Day.
hit on my GAME2000
Out and back from Zeta Pass
Very windy, had to break trail through drifts several feet deep in a couple places, on our way back they'd already formed again
Round trip through Carter Notch and north to the Carters
Moderately difficult section up from Carter Notch had stunning views of the lakes. Gonna have to go back and see it from the Wildcat side.
My first 'modern' backpacking trip! From the log: After a brief lunch stop at Imp Shelter, we ascended North Carter, an extremely steep, hot ascent with marginal views at the summit. The trail continued more or less level for a mile or two over Middle and South Carter mountains through scrubby growth and large rocks, not quite high enough to be alpine, but too high to provide decent shade. Unused to backpacking (it had been several years for me), we finally dropped into Zeta Pass between the Carter's and Carter Dome and spent the night among the pines.
Spectacular winter hike with the finest weather and a great crew from Views from the Top (www.viewsfromthetop.com). Temps from 15-25, almost no wind, crampons all day. Great visibility.
