Sierra Nevada Backpacking
After you register online, be sure to check your email receipt for further instructions.
The Backpacking program will spend nine days traveling on foot through California's majestic Sierra Nevada Mountains. There are five different routes, each in the "High Sierra" region south of Yosemite. Much of the time will be spent above timberline in the crisp alpine air between 6,000 and 11,000 feet. On the backpacking trips we will hike a peak, rock climb in the backcountry and do a 24 hour solo.
