Thanks! Caltech Peak and it's South Ridge were completely avoided. I went down to ~11,800 on the JMT coming down from Forester Pass before heading West up and into Upper Kern Basin.
Lucy's Foot Pass works too, although I believe there is even more unstable boulders to negotiate on the north side of Lucy's. Moreover, Milly's Foot Pass is the most direct route to Lake Reflection, which I wanted to include in the loop.
University Pass is between University Peak and University Crags, and it is a steep descent!
Middle Palisade is right above Mather Pass. I climbed Middle Palisade via the South Fork Big Pine (East side) so the lakes are not the ones near Mather Pass. From the JMT, the Palisades are viewed from the West.
