Should be an awesome trip! We're camping at Crane Flats Friday and Saturday nights, then heading into the back country for two nights.
There are 12 non-meetup people coming too.
Saturday - Hiking around Yosemite Valley
Sunday - Half Dome, pre-dawn start.
Sunday evening/night - put in a couple of miles of backpacking to a campsite
Monday - Backpacking (some people are diving back Monday)
Tuesday - Backpacking, out by mid afternoon, drive back to LA
Backpacking Route: TBD. We'll try for walkup permits for trailheads out of the valley and if we can't get one, there are several areas without quotas we can backpack in. We'll do about 5-10 miles/day max (nothing too hard core).
$20 should cover both nights of camping and the permits, but that's just an estimation. No refunded.
Standard backpacking gear including pad, sleeping bag, cooking gear, food.
Bear canisters are required! (They can be rented at REI or Adventure 16)
