  • From Lone Pine you can catch the INYO bus to Bishop. Then the CREST bus from Bishop to Lee Vinning. Then the YARTS bus from Lee Vinning into Yosemite Valley. Then it's just a matter of getting back to Fresno the same way you got to Yosemite Valley. Here are a couple of the bus links: http://www.countyofinyo.org/transit/route,%20schedule%20&%20fares.htm http://www.yarts.com/ http...

  • I think that might be one hell of a challenge. I did the JMT last summer and through my preparation used a lot of PCT material. As many know the PCT'ers are normally the first to pass through the JMT each year. What I found is that the unofficial rule is coming up from the south you should not get to Kennedy Meadows before June 15, I think that many PCT'ers even have sort of a...

  • Dave I doubt that you will need crampons. I did the trail this past July and probably ran into snow less than a dozen times for maybe 50ft each time.

  • Dana My friend Brian did the JMT from Tuolumne Meadows South to Whitney Portal this past summer. The hike up from Yosemite Valley I did the previous summer and takes about two days. Be careful of the bears in this area. This is how this past summer went: July 20, 2004 Tuolumne Meadows to Donohue Pass Camp (13.5 miles) July 21, 2004 Donohue Pass Camp to Gladys Lake Camp (13.0 miles...

  • I don't have any experience with the south to north route but I would say that the valley to Tuolumne is no piece of cake. Right from the start you have a 4500+ elevation gain. A chore that is not repeated anywhere else on the trail. Paul --- In johnmuirtrail@^$1, "dive_hike" wrote: > I prefer North to South for faster hikes.

  • The second reason more important than the first. I made an attempt on the JMT the summer of 2003, which I did not finish, and 2004, which I did complete. The reason that I did not finish in 2003 was because if altitude sickness. After returning I studied everything that I could find on the subject. I would say that the number one reason for the 2004 success was hydration. Every...
