Sierra Solitude – Part 2: The Hardest Rock Climb in North America (in 1896)

After a great start to the trip, I finish up the trek to camp in the Sixty Lakes Basin, get a good night’s rest, and make an attempt at one of the most remote and difficult Sierra summits – Mt. Clarence King. Towering over the center of the Rae Lakes Loop, Mt. King is a centerpiece of the region and a peak whose summit is sought by many a climber to bask in its beauty and its amazing history. Today it’s my turn to try.
