Duck Pass, August 16 2015

I'm surprised I haven't heard more about this hike. One of my favorites so far. It seems like a decent acclimation hike leading up to Mt. Whitney if you're in the area: Here's a link to the first trip report and full gallery: Duck Pass, August 16 2015

...and some highlights. Clicking on a photo will bring you to the trip report/photos:

Thank you for another enjoyable TR and pictures. Nice site too, are you planning to write a review on your Oboz Traverse Lows?

Thanks!

I haven't written a review of the Oboz Traverse Lows, but another ambassador has. I have a huge backlog of reviews - I will write one eventually, it's just not a priority. In general, they're comfortable and I like them for shorter hikes. I have foot issues and anything other than a boot with a full shank seems to destroy my feet if I hike more than ~12 miles
