Just got my northbound John Muir trail permit for august 2018 ( 220 miles with lots of peaks and passes over 10k feet), so I'm trying to do multi day backpacking trips that also summit the So Cal 6 peaks as training for that..basically a six pack of peak backpacking challenge for myself! last year I did my own unofficial challenge, but only got 2 of 6. I did a 16 mile loop for Mt Wilson, and a 27 mile loop to San Gorgonio!I hope to get all 6 this year, and many more,as well as Mt Whitney and half-dome when I am on the JMT. I'll probably do a few multi day backpacking loops in Sequoia National Park, and maybe the trans catalina trail as well as training.
