Another 2 pass day! We used our set-up position to clear Pinchot Pass early in the day and then drop down by Lake Marjorie. We followed the creek down passed the Bench Lake and Taboose Trail intersections and then on its long ascent to Mather Pass. From the top of Mather Pass we had a clear view down to the Palisade Lakes and headed down to camp by the north lake.
Distance: 15.9 miles; Ascent: 3690′; Descent: 3982′
