Ascent Trip Report

On day one, I backpacked from Silver Lake over Agnew Pass to Thousand Island Lake, where I set up camp. On day two, I backpacked over North Glacier Pass and down the other side and then up the North Fork of the San Joaquin River to the small lake located about 0.8 miles east of Rodgers Peak. On day three, I day hiked the peak via its class 2 east-southeast ridge. Later, I returned to camp, then backpacked over Clinch Pass and down the other side to Rush Creek, where I set up camp. On the last day, I backpacked out to the truck located at Silver Lake.
