If you've been searching for the best source of information and stimulating discussion related to Spring/Summer/Fall backpacking, hiking and camping in the Sierra Nevada...look no further!

you never know til you get up there.

Yes they were able, but you have to take into consideration whether the person who
wrote that was experienced or not. It is easier for someone who has gone over the pass
before to do the trail with some snow on it, if they pick the right time of the day so
the snow is not hard/icy or to soft (postholing). If tracks from previous backpackers are
present then it will be easier, just be very cautious.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
