Fun and stable all the way to the Keyhole, then it got tedious with a Class 3-4 traverse about 500' below the ridge (too windy to traverse ridge). I intentionally stayed away from boring Class 2 slog up north slope. Tagged Marshall as well. Awesome loop trip! BTW, the pencil was already broken; bring another one from a bowling alley. :)
THe clouds and neighboring peaks made interesting views when walking in the middle of the summit plateau. Accended from Piute Pass via Muriel Lake etc - Descended via the Wonder lakes drainage with D & M (there was one very loose chute in our chosen route - otherwise it was delightful).
with Marshall, sierra challenge day. Got the chance to check out an amazing area of the Sierra I have not seen before-the wonder lakes area.
amazing views of Darwin and Mendel from summit!
I did the scary-loose traverse from Lamarck in 2009, and do not recommend it. The 2013 boulder-hop from Lost Lakes is much easier. Photos.
