WOOHOO!! On 8/3-8/10/17 (8 days total), Toshi, Sean, and I completed the first ascent of Convoluted Bliss, the longest alpine traverse climbed to date in the United States. This massive 51-peak traverse is a grand ridge tour of three Sierra subranges: most of the Cathedral Range and the entirety of the Isberg Divide and Clark Range. For the first 4 days we were bombarded with thunderstorms containing hail and heavy rain, causing us to bolt off the ridge at odd parts of the day for shelter. Eventually the weather got better and we enjoyed several full days of scrambling and climbing. After years of tries and failures the dream of completing this traverse has finally come true. I couldn't have done it without and couldn't have asked to be part of a better team!
Difficulty: VI, class 4-5
Stats: ~70 miles 26,000 ft gain
planning map (not accurately actual route taken): https://caltopo.com/m/11G4
total freeze dried meals consumed: ~66

11 hrs
The crux of day 3 to Four Gables was getting to the TH. The road got chewed up pretty badly this year and few of our vehicles could make it to the start. Thanks to those who helped shuttle others up the road.
There were five of us that made it to the top of Four Gables South (a bit higher than the SPS Four Gables) in a little under 5hrs. We ascended the class 3 SE Chute and descended the easier class 2 route to the south. Lots of snow helped keep the boulder h
opping to a minimum. We met up with David P on the way down and somehow missed Jim B and Justin who were some distance behind David.
JD, Robert and Jim P went up Basin Mtn from the TH as an alternative. JD and Robert continued to South Basin and Robert continued further to Four Gables.
Scott had a long day on Bearpaw, climbing seven summits but not returning until after midnight. He stayed at the Pine Creek TH last night and then climbed Gable Lakes Peak and some others before traversing over to Four Gables. The man seems to have no need for rest or sustenance. I think he's climbed almost 20 peaks in three days.

Taco and i made the summit of the Grand Teton today. Was a blast and a great accomplishment. We recreated our super awkward photo when we first met and climbed Half Dome together. Except this time we're actually friends now. We Simul climbed many parts of the ridge and swapped some leads on the route. Feeling proud! And tired!

On Wednesday evening Inyo County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from a group of backpackers reporting an injured hiker on the Baxter Pass trail near Independence. Three Inyo County Search and Rescue volunteers responded and hiked to the reported location, arriving at the patient at around 11:30pm. The patient, a solo backpacker in his forties, had slipped at a dangerous creek crossing and severely injured his leg, preventing him from walking or moving. He was found by the backpackers on a log in the middle of the creek, having waited over 36 hours for someone to find him and call for help.
Around midnight, Inyo SAR carefully moved the patient and stabilized his injury. The team and the patient remained there until dawn, when air support arrived from the California Highway Patrol Inland Division Air Operations H-82 helicopter. The helicopter crew expertly navigated within twenty feet of dozens of large trees, and successfully hoisted the patient over 100 feet into the helicopter for transport to the hospital.
Inyo SAR and the Inyo County Sheriff's Office would like to thank the CHP - Inland Division Air Operations crew for their professionalism and skill while aiding in the Baxter Creek mission.
The Inyo SAR team works in cooperation with and under the authority of the Inyo County Sheriff’s Department. Interested in joining SAR or donating? Check out the Inyo SAR website at http://inyosar.com for more information.

Gerald planned to climb the Mt. Whitney summit (the highest summit in the contiguous United States and the Sierra Nevada, with an elevation of 14,505 feet) after Badwater135 but he did not attemp to climb the summit because there are still a lot of ice in the mountain. He is afraid of ice. These 4 brave friends of ours (Raul Ching, Ibar Dinampo, Ilah Maguigad and Noel Maguigad) from NJ, NYC and Chicago who went to west coast just to climb the summit with a plan to help Gerald reach his goal, did not hesitate to climb the summit the day after BW135. And they made it!!! They said it was not easy! So proud of them! Thank you so much for the support you gave to Gerald but so sorry he was not able to come with you guys going up to the summit.

Eventually, American mountaineer Colin Haley and the French rope made up of Mathieu Maynadier and Jeremy Rumebe made it and reached the top of Gasherbrum II. They were the first to reach 8,034 meters in the mountains this summer. They reached the top on July 16 by climbing from the normal road and went skiing. Now they are all at the base camp. The purpose of the expedition was to experience on a particularly difficult road then try to try something more in the coming years. For all three, the first 8,000.
Mathieu Maynadier said: "We arrived at the top of Sunday. We are now back to the base camp. We are happy because we have been alone on the mountain and the early of the season to succeed in the uphill climb. "
