rlown;
I'm wondering if you took the usual trail to upper Deso, the one that meanders high above the eastern shore of lower Deso, before mildly ascending the slope that leads to the southern shore of uppper Deso. On my way in (I have been there twice now), I did not notice what you describe as "that hideous pyramid of rock off the main trail below Summit Lk?" Did you take a different ust trail in? As I recall, on my first visit there in 2006, a trail sign marked the use trail. That sign was not present on my recent visit, but the use trail was where I knew it would be.

copeg;
Nice report. The beach that you and rlown refer to would be on the north shore of the lake, correct? From my perspective, that looked like a long hike to get there. You said you have previously hiked around and fished the lake. Some of the areas on the west side looked impassable, unless traversing high above the lake. That beach would be a nice destination, but a sailboat might be the best way to get there.

Yes, that beach is a ways away (its a big lake). We had passed it on our way up to summit Four Gables. I have a picture laying around somewhere taken from the beach, I'll look for it and if I find it try to remember to post it.

messages one now from Copeg, and one I sent earlier during the week when you asked
about travel in Ionian Basin.
