Toxo and I drove down to Tioga Pass on Thursday night. We were planning to climb Matthes Crest on Friday, but a few complications caused us to alter our plans. Daria forgot to bring a rope, a fact that we didn't notice until 11:30pm on Thursday just as we were rolling into the Mono Lake area. She decided to head back home to get it instead of coming directly to meet us, and thus did not arrive at our designated rendezvous location until something like 3am. Matthes Crest is a long day, so we had planned to get up very early and approximate an alpine start. We all awoke not feeling that great (for a variety of different reasons) and took our sweet time getting ready. Somewhere during this process, it was determined that the Crest was no longer a plausible objective for the day. However, North Peak was right up the road and Daria had not previously climbed the north ridge, which is an amusing way to kill a half day (or more if you like hanging around, drinking, enjoying the scenery, and/or swimming). The route is a pleasant scramble, though route descriptions rate it 5.3. My take is that this means if you can climb 5.3 then the route is 3rd class. We packed the beer, wine, and gourmet noms into our tiny daypacks and drove up to Saddlebag Lake to hit the trail. A good time was had by all. The route was fun, We found an amusing descent I was previously unaware of, Daria got nudes of me swimming in one of the higher Conness Lakes, Not a single fuck was given, etc. Here are some pictures:

Are those grouse, maybe? I don't really know. What do I look like, some kind of biologist?

I'll get around to the Matthes Crest TR and other random stuff from this trip (including at least 2 different frog species) in the next couple days. Maybe.

Also, found another pic of summit lunch on my phone:

Nice.

Looks awesome. I can't imagine skinny dipping in Canada. Even the French there, are different than realz French nudity-wise. But the water temps make my sac crawl inside in any event.

Downclimbing drunk is friggin rad. Love it.
