Easiest place is Onion Valley TH over Kersage Pass and meet up at
Charlotte Lake. From there you go over Forrester and up to Guitar Lake.
This way his car will be on the East side of the Sierra and you can
take Inyo Transit back to the town of Independence and hitch back to
He could come in at Florence Lake and take the boat over and come over
and meet you at Muir Trail Ranch. The only problem with this is
getting back to his car.
Same he could come in at North Lake at Bishop over Piute Pass and
meetup right where you enter Evolution Valley. (East side)
Bishop Pass out of South Lake also Bishop meet up at pete's
There is also Tabbose Pass and actually several other non-maintained
passes off the East side. This depends on his experience level.
I would really recommend coming in on the east side as getting back
over to the West side to p/u a car is a lot of trouble.
