Nice! I wasn't exactly sure where yous guys went. It appears you finished
on Triple Divide but where did you start?
Oh, and the point of the helmets for soloing? I guess just to attach the camera? :-)

Nice, I work here in Sequoia and get to marvel in its beauty and smells everyday! Not too many venture in the backcountry these days and its good to see you enjoying the bounty!

Thanks for the comments, this was just Day 1, Saber Ridge to Triple Divide, down the south ridge to the shoulder of Stewart (ran out of time), and back to camp. The following day we explored Hamilton Dome and the adjacent spires, wild place where you just hope you can find a way out. More video to come...
Sonic is on top of the beta with the AAJ link.

way to leave out any useful beta and just post a video. wouldn't want tamarack lake to fill up with climbers, 15 miles from the road in a place where no climbers go. i mean hell, look at all those lines on angel wings.
