... in actuality, the cumulative climb was perhaps more like 4500 feet. All of us felt like today was more difficult than even Forester Pass or Mt. Whitney. Either way, we the descended to 10,000 ft to mile 811.4. That means that tomorrow we have 5 miles and 2000 feet or so to climb for the next pass, Mather. I hope tomorrow is better than ...
