Hiking, Western US, Yosemite / 15.10.2010

Mt. Lyell Group - I was camping up there! Yosemite Log - Day 5 Tarp was coated with condensation ice this morning. My main concern was climbing Vogel Pass given how i felt yesterday. I paced myself to keep my heart rate down. Felt anxious but never felt bad. I was at the top quickly. The backside did not have a drop off. All of Vogelsang was high.
