From the ski parking lot, hiked up underneath the lift to the Notch and then over to Thunder, Telegraph and Timber. We existed via Ice House Canyon.
Been up many times. Nice short hike from Icehouse. Better doing Three Ts from Manker Flat. Next time up I'll try from Middle Fork Lytle Creek.
One of the first peaks I ever did. I love this mountain. Great summit trees, also a good camping spot for heading up to Telegraph Peak in the morning.
Beautiful day. Few people on the way up, but hordes (typical for a weekend) on the way down. Passed what I took for a Sierra Club group carrying rope, helmets, pickets, and ice axes. One guy was even wearing plastic boots! Trail was snow-free. I guess it takes all kinds...
