Went out to the cliffs above McCloud, then back the other way for views of the San Joaquin and Crystal Crag. Weekend crowds going to Crystal Lake were ridiculous.
Many times, different routes
Fun scramble up to the pass above the unnamed lakes before the drop down to Deer Lakes. Outstanding trail and scenery throughout this hike.
Nice easy hike with some snow and ice along the way. Wine and cheese on top.
Great ridge run. Started on the Mammoth Pass trail past Maclead Lake then up onto the Crest. Continued east passing Crystal Crag to the high point overlooking Duck Pass. I reversed trail and descended toward Crystal Lake before heading cross country back to the car at Horseshoe Lake.
I hiked up from Lake George, investigated Crystal Crag, then continued up the crest trail to the red part, then headed back down. I was not sure where the high point was.
Numerous times hiking and skiing
Went up to heart lake for a snowshoe with a big hangover
Took the trail from the lakes to one of the high points.
