Ascent Trip Report

Despite hiking in two of the first three days of the Sierra Challenge, this was my first day hiking with the rest of the participants, as I had hiked further south to avoid smoke. We started up the Bishop Pass Trail at 6am towards Knapsack Pass Peak, and I eventually settled into the second group of hikers. On the ascent to the pass, we passed by a group of 77 dead (and extremely smelly) muledeer that had died the previous winter due to bad snow conditions. We dropped into Dusy Basin and ascended the opposite ridge in the direction of the beautiful Giraud Peak, which I had considered as a bonus peak, but I became extremely lazy when I saw the descent required to avoid the class 4 route that a few other participants undertook. On the ridge traverse, I hiked with Mason and David, and we reached the summit at 10:15am, about ten minutes before Bob arrived. I was hoping to get a bonus peak or two on the way out, and I eventually conviced David to join me to Mounts No Goode and Goode. We traveled back across Dusy Basin and up the south slope of No Goode, happily avoiding the strong stench on the Bishop Pass Trail. The slope was a standard class 1-2 talus hop, and we summited No Goode at 2:50pm and Goode at 3:03pm. We descended down the gentle slopes towards the Bishop Pass Trail, rejoining it about four miles from the trailhead. David pulled away, and I reached the trailhead around 5:30pm. I met up with some folks at the Mountain Rambler Brewery in Bishop after the hike.
