A nice jaunt up into Desolation Basin that leads to two great descent options back down.

Overview

Features: -none- [Add/Remove]
Dogs: Off-leash

Description [Suggest Changes]

From the intersection with Upper Plumbers Crack and Lower Plumbers Crack, branch off heading uphill to climb into the valley and wrap around the bluff that you've been contouring. Continue uphill until you top out with a nice view of the entire Desolation Basin. Descend the ridgeline, either branch right to stay on the main trail or go straight to stay on Desolation Ridge.
