Sierra High Route conditions

Post by Venturi » Mon Aug 15, 2011 12:33 am

Has anyone been over the Sierra High Route between Bishop Pass and Palisade Lakes this season? I'd like to know the conditions over Potluck, Cirque and Mather passes.

I was over Knapsack Pass a few weeks ago. At that time the gully on the north side was full of snow but could be avoided by hiking to up to the left (or down to the right). Didn't hike up towards Potluck, but from a distance could see it was spotty with snow from Barrett Lakes all the way up to the summit. I talked to some folks who had planned to hike up there and they had bailed on the plan due to snow. Again, this was a few weeks ago so much could have changed. Here's the trip report: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6747" onclick=";return false;
