Useful page, nice hike.
I tried doing a traverse from Post Summit to My Manuel this winter when there was snow up there. Unfortunately I wasnt prepared for SNOW in big sur. So this peak is still on my to-do list.
Manuel Peak is really a dead end. The trail to Vado is wahed out and overgrown, and Vado was wrecked by a storm. The Tin House trail is basically gone.
Manuel Peak has been drastically changed by this year's Basin Complex Fire. I have attached some recent photos.
