A winter visit with Matthew to Granite Chief, then on to Needle and Lyon Peaks. Trip Report
Walked from Squaw Valley, over Granite Chief, along the ridge to Needle Peak and Lyon Peak by myself. You wouldn't know it from Squaw, but the ridge seems real remote. Good weather, quite windy, nice views. Could see Lassen!
