    I think you’ll enjoy the Red Peak Pass area. When are you starting?

After after a solid map reconnaissance and discussing different ideas with other hikers, I settled on a route that would begin at Glacier Point, go over Red Peak Pass, exit Yosemite at Isberg Pass, and work its way into the Devils Postpile and Red’s Meadow. More about that route here. […]

    We got a permit to exit Isberg Pass and I would love to know how everyone got to Red’s Meadow. I’m fiddling around with online USGS maps and I’m missing some trails. Please email me!

    Thanks,
