Ascent Trip Report

Backpacked up to Bedsprings Camp on Friday night with plans of traversing to NY Butte and dropping to a shuttled car at Long John Canyon on Sunday.

Mt. Inyo and Keynot on Saturday. Keynot took much longer than expected without ice axes to deal with snow in final 300 ft. Ended up traversing loose towers and gullies west of the summit before ascending to the top. With the day later than hoped and a storm over the Sierra, we decided to descend 2000 ft on the west ridge and dropped to the Forgotten Pass / French Springs trail. Followed that down canyon to the Owens Valley and hiked cross country to the waiting car at Long John Canyon.
