Ascent Trip Report

After breaking camp at Geneveive, continued on Tahoe Yosemite trail over the pass to Phipps and on to Dicks Lake just before dark. Next day headed out over Dicks pass but ran out pf time to do Dicks and Jacks. Got plantar faceitis on this trip. Took a year and a lot of money to get over.
