Was thinking the same idea. A bit turned off by lack of ready re-supply options so late and the necessity of carrying a little extra to accommodate circumstances. Good on you for going for it. Possible ditch always has to be part of the plan so late in the season. Sounds like it was well worth the effort. Excellent advice re: the Map Set!

Funny,As I was reading this report I thought it was from last week. The Eastern Sierras had snow just the same. I didn't pay attention until a few posts down.Nice trip. Way to follow instincts. It can snow a lot up there in a hurry.Scott
