THIS TRIP HAS BEEN CHANGED.
It is a 2-day backpacking trip to climb Mt. Sill, a 14er of the High Sierra. The peak will involve some of Class 3, possibly class 4 depending on route.
Tentative plan is to depart from Vegas Friday night and camp near the trailhead. Saturday we plan to get an early start and hike up S. Fork of Big Pine Creek, then head up to Elinore Lake where we will probably camp. Sunday, we will summit and hike out, then drive home.
Route is subject to change based on permit availability.
Total Distance: 18 miles round trip
Total Elevation Gain: 7000'
Terrain Description: Class 1 trail-Class 3+
Approximate Hiking Time: Two full days
