This was the start of a series of 2 dayhikes that I was to complete over Labor Weekend with a friend; however this one being solo due to the fact that he had to work Saturday, and this dayhike/climb was a little beyond his league of peak ba
gging and endurance at the time. This started out as a 7 ½ mile hike at 3:30am and ended 17hrs later at 8:30pm with about 15 miles of ground covered "Emblem Peak" that I've climbed in the High Sierras, Mount Whitney being the other that I've done—twice. If I could do this climb again, I'd prefer to use a rappel on the 200 ft section of the class 4, and I might just do it and bring a couple friends along.
