Pie on the Trail:
The Southern Sierra High Route (SSHR) was developed by Alan Dixon and Don Wilson in 2014.
It is 100 miles long and the majority is off-trail travel mixed with sections on the JMT. Elevation loss and gain are high and the going is hard.
Blake Bole’s 2019 trip report was posted in rhyming verse!
Hiking this route requires a wilderness permit from Inyo National Forest.
Bear canister(s) required. There are no easy re-supply points. Snow is an issue some years.
