  00-MAP-Matterhorn-Peak.jpg - This topo section actually shows the Matterhorn Peak circuit I did in 1972, a 9-day solo. Blue "pins" represent camps pitched in 1972. The original plan for 1979 was to re-create part of it, instead coming in from Virginia Pass and the eastern slope of the Sierras. This route (not highlighted on the JPG map) intercepted the loop at the zig-zag dogleg on the eastern side of the circuit. It continues down to Miller Lake, and then climbs 3,000 feet in a day and a half journey, to Burro Pass near Matterhorn Peak. There are more detailed map sections, representing the two major locations of the trip, later in the slide show.
