Sure the Fernandez option is good, but the OP said he needs to be able to get back
to his car which this option definitely does not have.

They drive their car to Fernandez Pass TH and start and finish there. (no shuttle issue but much longer drive).

Quartz MT trailhead loop –
Chiquito Lake – Givens – Johnson - Royal Arch - Buena Vista – Hoover – Breeze – Chain - Chiquito...
Sort of reminds me of a fishing trip made last May.
I wonder what ever happened to that Trail Report...Mike?

Your right MIke! Was thinking that the OP could not start from the west since he
mentioned not being able to start from the Valley .

Thanks guys for the most helpful suggestions -- much appreciated. I think I like
Oleander's idea of a one-way hike from Tuolumne Meadows southbound on the JMT, exiting at Agnew Meadows best, but will look at my maps and read up more carefully.

Saltygod: My reason for acclimating at TM for 2 days is that form my past experiences, we find it tough hiking out the first day after flying in from sea level - even without much on our backs. I recall puffing away pretty hard on a dayhike From TM to Parker Pass for instance. Plus that would mean leaving with 2 more days' worth of food and fear the total weight would be a bit much starting off.

Thanks again - great to feel that passion!
