Two of us completed a successful first ascent of the Basin to Tom Traverse on 6/25-6/27/16: This is an extremely beautiful route which dominates the Bishop skyline, traversing every single peak around the Horton Lakes basin. On day 1, we started from 4,800 ft and climbed to the summit of Basin Mountain via East Couloir (class 4+) and camped at a notch (~13,000 ft) right below the summit. The next day both of us woke up with mild altitude sickness, but continued anyway, climbing the scary, fun, and wildly exposed east ridge of South Basin (class 5.4). Eventually the physical effort just became a pure suffer fest, and we only made it to Four Gables by the second day, camping on the 12,700 ft summit plateau. We woke up the third day to downclimb a 1,000 ft couloir and ascend Mt. Tom, then proceeded to descend Tom's north ridge, arriving back at our starting point at ~10:20pm.

Successful FAIL of a 5-day central Sierra traverse on 6/11-12: We were unprepared for snow conditions (way more snow than we thought) and had to bail after the 6th peak (which we also failed because the summit block looked deadly). By Saturday night, we had made it to the Margaret Lakes Basin, 4 peaks away from my estimated progress for that day. All throughout Saturday night, we were pummeled with thundersnows, and woke up Sunday morning to a winter wonderland. While winter wonderlands may be good in December, they were not very welcome in mid-June during a traverse attempt. It wasnt a total loss. Getting into the area made me realize a more efficient way to map it, and we will likely attempt it again soon with better conditions.
