West slope  Sucess!

After Solomons. I tried traversing to the Sirens, but that turned scary and cliffed out, so I did Hansen instead. Trip report.

She kept calling  Sucess!

Plan was just to dance our way through the basin from Chasm Lake to wherever. Then I saw her rising above her lake from the saddle just to the north. I fought for awhile, but eventually she won out (or was it the Sirens calling me to her?). I ate a quick lunch and enjoyed the scramble up the northwest shoulder. Nice view out over the entire basin.

Ionian Basin  Sucess!

Was thrilled to finally get a weekend in Ionian Basin after thinking about it for a couple years. On the second night I camped at Lake 11592, then up the north slope of Scylla as a warmup for Goddard that afternoon (was able to walk from Lake 11828 to 11592 while only dropping to 11400 feet). Scylla is a great peak, pretty solid footing if you keep to the far east side of the north slope.

From Goddard  Sucess!

Easy climb from the beautiful Ionian Basin and the views fantastic. The Three Sirens were cool too (but no time to climb this trip). Peak #8 on JMT adventure.

Scylla and Reinstein  Sucess!

Happy Birthday, Mom! Started from Lake Martha, came back via Reinstein Pass and Mount Reinstein itself. The Ionian Basin is an outstanding area in the Sierra.
