Tediously steep clawing my way out of the Kern River valley. Rest of the climb not so bad.
Packed over from camp at a lake to the northeast, going up the loose slope from the lake to the north, then contouring along Kern Ridge on day 3 of a backpack. Trip report.
Long dayhike from Shepherd Pass TH. Trip Report.
Traversing climb over lots of scree and talus. Not pleasant but the views were awesome. Photos
