Memories

I went here when I was four back in 1970 or so with my parents and grandparents on a Sierra Club trip and have never been back. That trip is what might have gotten me into hiking climbing and such. Thanks for posting this and allowing memories of that wonderful trip to return.

Re: Memories

Cool story Rob... I'm glad the photo had an impact and thanks for commenting. I hope you get a chance to return someday. I certainly hope to go back when I can, maybe next year even.

Center Basin

This is another area I regret not seeing. I'd love to do University from here... I know; class 1, but 2 is my limit anyway. Did you do Keith or Junction from here?

Re: Center Basin

I sure did. This picture was from my first trip to Golden Bear lake, and I climbed Mount Keith and University on that one. I liked it so much I went back this year for another couple of nights and did East Vidette, Junction, and Center Peak.

Wow!

Was that descent of University a booger-bear? 'Looks like the knees would take a real beating!

Re: Wow!

The descent was fantastic... top to bottom in less than 20 minutes. Nice and sandy. The ascent was the booger!

Re: Wow!

LOL! Up two, back one, sort of thing? There were no techincal issues above class two; right?
