Dinner Plate Traverse (trip report)

Postby Eric1234 » Wed Jul 10, 2013 11:42 pm

Two weeks ago a friend and I climbed the "Dinner Plate Traverse," a group of 5 peaks surrounding Lake Tulainyo, the highest named lake in California. Its an awesome route in the Sierras, off the beaten path and away from the nearby zoo (Mt. Whitney).

Wow, what a terrific report. Both the photos and the account are wonderful. That is such a great report it makes me feel like returning to peak bagging (my main objective in the Sierra before getting obsessed with high lake fishing).
Since my fishing (etc.) website is still down, you can be distracted by geology stuff at: http://www.fresnostate.edu/csm/ees/facu ... ayshi.html
