New to Desolation

by tedryan10 » Wed Jul 18, 2018 4:54 pm

Hi guys,

Just relocated from LA to Sacramento and am excited to explore the northern stretch of the Sierra.

I'm trying to put together my first weekend in the Desolation Wilderness to incorporate a class 2-3 climb and fishing.

Can anyone recommend a good combination of basecamp lake and peak nearby? Currently thinking of Sylvia or Lyons lake and do Pyramid and Agassiz.

Curious about favorite lakes and climbs in general in the tahoe region too.

Thanks!

Sylvia puts both Pyramid and Agassiz in play. I also like the solitude of Lyons as many stop before the climb up at Sylvia

The following user would like to thank ScottyP for this post

Sounds good, thanks!

Any reasonable alpine approaches from Aloha or one of the other larger lakes?
