Big Johnson
 
  The Cactus Rancher and I got out early this morning and somehow managed to stumble to the summit of Mt. Johnson [12,871'] from the Treasure Lakes col.  This peak is more complex than we expected, but will go at class 3 up the back [western] side, if one is sensible enough to use proper routefinding.
 
  From the summit we looked down into Kings Canyon National Park, which is surprisingly close, considering how long it takes to drive there.  Here is myself on the summit, with the Citadel and the rest of the Kings Canyon highcountry in the background.  Look closely and notice my devilish visage.....

Disclaimer   The opinions offered here are mine.  I believe that sucsess on the peaks depends on trusting yourself.  If you do not have a trusting relationship with your body and mind, or if you are not sure, or if you are unwilling to provide the commitment, then you should probably stick with sport climbing and such.  To the mountain ecosystem, you are only a rich supply of nutrients, so step carefully!
