Highway 140 & Highway 41, Yosemite National Park, CA
EDIT: How about we leave the Bay Area Thursday, the 25th at noon, get to Yosemite, then either try to get a wilderness permit or set up camp and then wake up at the buttcrack of dawn on Friday and do the snake hike.
We can then take Saturday off and chill, drink some beers, go for a swim or whatnot, and then try to climb the Royal Arches on Sunday.
I'm a decent leader, but I'd feel better if one or two other experienced leaders joined this trip so that we can have a strong group.
Im considering doing snake dike ( back / slab side of half dome, ~5.7) this fall. Anyone interested? Considering hiring a guide to lead.
