    I took the same route as you to Red’s, although I started at Happy Isles, and ended up having to bail at Red’s due to a really bad foot bruise (caused by a shoe-failure).

    I camped short of Red Peak Pass & Isberg pass and both of those nights were incredible. The “razor’s edge” 360 degree view from Red Peak Pass was simply incredible, as was the view from my campsite, just short of Isberg Pass.

    This is a great alternative. I hiked to Isberg Pass this summer and loved seeing the Minarets from the backside.
