Sierra Climbing Trip in 1978

In May 1978, I joined Mary, my brother Jay, and climbing buddy Don McEachern on a climbing trip in the Sierra. We climbed Mts LeConte and Mallory, two tall peaks on the Sierra Crest southeast of Mt Whitney. Here is our itinerary.

Day 1 (May 27): Pack 5 miles up the Meysan Lakes Trail from Whitney Portal Campground to Grass Lake, which is covered by snow.

Day 2 (May 28): Climb both Mt LeConte, at 13,960 ft, and Mt Mallory, at 13,850 ft, in a single day!

Day 3 (May 29): Pack out.

I scanned my slides in early 2022 and prepared the following blog.
