No worries, WD. Thanks for clarifying. I understand where you're coming from, and your concerns are valid.

Incidentally, most anyone can go to REI and rent both ice axe and crampons. :confused:

Thanks for the warning about Star, Puppet and Steelhead passes John. I don't have experience with Red & White Pass vs. Bighorn & Shout of Relief, but I should be up there in a few days:).

Andy,

How was your trip? Did it go according to your plan? I'm anxious to hear about the snow conditions you encountered - I'm going to be there next week.

Hi goral. I have been able to delay my trip, which should be good for snow conditions. I am leaving tomorrow morning, can't wait! I will report back on 7/4.

Two of us are leaving Mammoth Lakes on June 30 heading south so we will be right behind you. If you were to go just a few days later we could join forces (unless you prefer going solo). Good luck!

I had to postpone my trip at the last minute because my flight to Bay area was cancelled due to bad weather. I couldn't get it rescheduled to continue with the original plan. I hope I'll have a better luck next time.
