Hello, I’m just preposting my plans for a backpack I am doing starting this weekend and going thru next weekend. I’ve put in alerts on the watcher, but wanted to post here my tentative and doable plans. This is part of a larger project I am doing to activate all the peaks within the Tahoe Rim Trail cooridor. Desolation Wilderness has some 13 peaks within their boundaries, and I have done 4 so far. Next week I plan on knocking off the last nine with a bit of a loop hike thru Desloation.
I’ve already had to edit these dates, but… the current tentative plan is:
8/19: W6/NS-154 (Lost corner Mountain) && W6/NS-390 (7860) 0900-1300 will be activation time range.
8/20: W6/NS-107 “9269” (mid morning, 4 mile dayhike from basecamp)
8/20: W6/NS-105 “9310” (probably mid afternoon)
8/21 Moving day, but I may try and do something with SEQP before I head out.
8/21 or 8/22 will be time dependent, but W6/NS-095 “9420” if 8/21 late evening (8/22 UTC) or morning of 8/22 PST
8/23: W6/NS-377 Mount Price and W6/NS-094 Little Pyramid sometime between 1030-1400 PST
8/24 or 8/25 W6/NS-068 Dick’s peak and W6/SN-036 Mt Tallac will do both in the same day. Again 1030-1600 for Activation range (I am going to stay at this particular location for two days. May actually try a night activation from Tallac since I am camping 1.5 miles from there!
I probably will not have cell service on some of these peaks and those times are approximate, but should be pretty on the mark.
Thanks in advance if you do chase… -73 N6JFD
