Ascent Trip Report

From the Mokelumne Visiters Center, hiked in to Lake Winnemucca and set up a base camp (9022') to hike around and bag peaks out of. Original goal was Round Top Lake, but lots of snow made for difficult travel without skis or snowshoes. After a camp was established Jason and myself made the quick ascent up the Elephants Back (9561') with snow low on the trip into loose scree slopes. The idea was to climb high and sleep low with goals of Round Top and other near by peaks the following days.
