Muir to the Shroom, then a pitch below Mammoth 3 moves right puts you in the PERFECT 48m C1 splitter of the Dorn to Mammoth.


couldn't tell if pete was saying he said it, or that he heard about it from the original post, so bringing the discussion over here.

anyone done this link up?  Sounds cool. Heading off to check topos in a bit...

I was looking at anklebiting this route this weekend based upon the reid topo but decided on other pastures. the A4 hooking traverse in pitch 3 (or 4?) seemed a bit scary on a less-than-traveled route

I heard it snowed pretty good, maybe those pastures are white by now, and we can all grab some beers instead. :)


actually I'm not climbing this weekend.  <-- this is a statement of angst and distraughtness  (is that even a word?)

Webcam shows the meadow still green and weatherunderground says snow level to 6000' so up we go on friday night.

Go get some, Munge! After this bout of weather, of course.
