Maverick's 2018 Annual Meet-up 7/26-7/27

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.

Several of us will be heading back to towards McGee Sat morning, so we will be there both days, plus Sat morning. :)

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Maverick (and others), what do you think is the shortest exit route from Grinnel Lake to McGee trailhead?. . . north over Pace Col and around to McGee Pass, or east over Grinnel Col and then over Hopkins Pass? Or some other route?

Quickest and easiest route is over Grinnell-Hopkins Ridge, starting your ascent from the southeastern peninsula in the larger Grinnell Lake, then descend down into the Hopkins drainage, ascend up to Upper Hopkins Lake and then over Hopkins Pass to McGee Lake, but I would also visit Lower Hopkins, pretty lake.
This is the route I would be doing if I was coming in solo.
