Maverick's 2017 Annual HST Meet-up | High Sierra Topix  

Maverick's 2017 Annual HST Meet-up

A forum to initiate member meet-up. Looking for a hiking/climbing/fishing/skiing/etc. partner, or are you planning a trip where you wouldn't mind having some company? Last minute invites can be just as fun as a well-planned group trip (sometimes even better) so don't be shy! And be sure to post a trip report to the appropriate forum when you get back.

I'll be there on Thurs, 7/27. Andy (BlueWater) is also going to try and make it as part of a larger hiking plan.

Assuming I can get a car problem I am having sorted I plan on being at Bench lake on the 27th (and possibly the 26th).

Hi Dave,

When would you be planning to head up, there are folks going up from the BA, who I am sure would be happy to share a ride with you. :)

I'm heading up on Saturday. My plan was to sleep in my car on Sat/Sun at altitude to acclimate and hike in early Monday.

It's looking like it's only my battery and not the alternator so I should be good to go when I get a new battery tonight :fingerscrossed

Anyone have any updated trail conditions as far as snow. I am coming in over Taboose to the Meetup on Saturday, and trying to estimate snow from reports I see (which are not up to date)..... it looks like the west side of the Sierra will still have quite a bit of snow in many areas from 10000 and up. If I am missing something posted on this site, my apologies, I am in a bit of a hurry. Definitely coming, I will bring spikes, and might even bring the old ice axe. Looking forward to it

I'm still lurking around with plans on being there, as it looks like I'll easily be able to make my prior commitment on the 30th. Will be finalizing permit plans over the next day or two.

Keep an eye on the weather forecast and skies next week, a possible stronger flow of monsoonal moisture may be impacting SEKI. Also, smoke is impacting SEKI from 2 different fires, Park Fire, which is 10% contained, and the Garcia Fire, which 95% contained.

Open ended trip Dave?
