This was definetely a tour. We averaged over 12 miles a day, so that didn’t leave too much time for peak baggin.

The best descent we had was off Donahue Pass. It was mellow corn for a bit then steep turns with a marmot poking its head out of the snow checking us out. Honestly the most fun as far as down went was laughing at ourselves making turns on our splits in ski mode.

I think many folks have crossed the Sierras on splits. I know the Sierra High Route has been done on a split. Burt and Zellers did a crossing through Yosemite that was written up in Couloir several years ago.
