Hi All -

Looking to bag some of the more technical peaks and would like some references for the most complete information (routes, waypoints, camping spots, approaches, etc.) Mixed reviews of "Climbing California's Fourteeners" book, many saying route description woefully inaccurate, incomplete, etc. I've been in the mountains enough to know what my limits are and when to turn around (done it plenty, but sucks), and want to avoid that. Looking for class 3 max at this point, no experience with ropes or protection yet. Any and all input is welcome. Looking at Tyndall and Williamson.

Thanks,
805

Buy this book: https://www.amazon.com/High-Sierra-Peaks-Passes-Trails/dp/0898869714

Learn how to use this site: http://www.peakbagger.com/

The book is an encyclopedia of mostly every route imaginable. Peakbagger has great trip reports and .gpx files you can download to your phone.

I usually camp near Tyndall.

As for Williamson, the most difficult part for me is navigating the rock field in the bowl. I use AllTrails for assistance, but do not depend on it.

I also turn around and abandon trips. Yes, that sucks, but it beats the alternative.
