My first (gasp) off trail experience. I was totally overprepared, if there is such a thing, but I used it to practice compass and map skills and match them up with what I could see. Overall, a fun solo trip.
A loop with Dana Pk 12565 and Gibbs.

Did on a long (by my standards) solo trek of Dana and Gibbs. Slight scramble up Gibbs was fun, particularly haulting my big 5 pound tripod. Something like 8 hours ctc from near Tioga Pass.

A great day. Saw only a few people on the trails and no one on the mountain. Trip Report Here.
Fourth and final day out in the Eastern Sierra over Memorial Weekend, a Dana-Gibbs dayhike out of Tioga Lake. A modest outing, but fun. The scramble up Gibbs' North Ridge was more enjoyable than I'd expected.
