9/2: Hike in and camp at Seavey Pass;
9/3: Volunteer Peak and Pettit Peak, back to camp;
9/4: Piute Mountain and hike out.
First of three peak day including Volunteer and Piute with Tommey. Unlike JD, we were camped at Seavey Pass and it was still a big day.
Day 2 of a backpack. Descended to Rodgers Lake, then dropped my pack, went up the west side of Regulation, and continued to Pettit before returning via the lake's south shore. Trip report.
Followed Holliman's directions. Tedious boulder-hopping -- took me about 2.5 hours each way.
A very long two day trip from Twin Lakes. Camped at the highest lake north of the peak (very scenic and warm enough for swimming), then up to watch the sunrise on the summit. Then over to Volunteer and Piute, rained pretty much the entire way out.
A long, 18hr dayhike out of Tuolumne Meadows via Return Creek, proving that it is probably not the fastest way to reach the peak. Trip Report
Volunteer-Pettit dayhike out of the Virginia Lakes TH, a tough outing. Not necessarily the most aesthetic peak from almost any vantage point, but the views were superb. Last person to sign in was up there exactly a year ago to the day.
