Windknot, thanks! Some of your reports, as well as various tips on HST by frequent users, have had me itching to push deeper into this area. I will be back, hopefully with more time and a more relaxed pace. I like to visit summits, but some of my buddies are more ambitious than I when it comes to visiting as many as seems possible. Anyway, I don't mind one bit that south of Yosemite and north of SEKI is nearest to me when it comes to High Sierra entry points.

Very cool looking rock stack. I'd heard that was up there years ago but had never seen a picture. Like what giants made playing Jenga with boulders. A funny pic would be for someone to get down in the space below the overhanging block lookers left and pose like they are trying to push it up and over the other side.

Ha! I'll have to remember that because I suspect I will be back to this one with others again. The exposure is safely at more than arms length at the spot you mention, too. There are signs and rumors that a ladder used to be in place up the low 5th class crack climb in the photo.

I'll mention to anyone thinking of venturing up there that the 4th class moves around the rear are not as bad as one might anticipate, especially if long in the legs. The approach is the killer on Hooper, but it is a gateway to fine scenery!
