Will be hanging around Grass/Meysan Lakes 8-10 Sept. Any class 2-3 hikes close by? So far we are leaning towards Lone Pine Peak. I have already done Candlelight Peak during a Whitney Portal Store group hike, so we are open to suggestions. My partner in crime is a decent climber and route finder, but I should probably avoid anything above class 2-3 myself. Once we finish with a Portal Store burger on the 10th, I'll send my friend on his way, and find my brother at his campsite for a Sept 11th dayhike up the main trail. Should be a fine weekend...........................................DUG

Well we are locked into Lone Pine Peak at this point. Once we read the description - "A horrific scree slog with lots of loose rock to be wary of.", we knew it was the day hike for us........................................................DUG

Made camp Friday night at Grass Lake. Light rain on the way up, heavier rain for 15-20 minutes while trying to set up camp. Then clear skies. Gusty winds off and on all night, plus a distant rock slide. Lazy start at about 0930 by 1000 we were in fog. The chute up towards Lone Pine Peak is pretty steep, but I don't think it's as horrible as it's internet press. We summited about noon without too much effort. Back down was no work, but you have to stay focused. I slipped and tumbled once close to the bottom to earn a few small cuts and bruises. Verizon has decent service at Grass Lake and anywhere you have a line of site with town. ATT only works line of site. Sitting in the tent now listening to rain. Will try to hike up to Meysan after dinner. Back to the portal Sunday. My buddy Matt will leave me and I'll make camp with my brother. Then it's up the main trail Monday..... ...DUG
