Here are files for planning a trip to Taboose Pass May 5 2007, in the Sierras.

See the National Weather Service's 7 Day Forecast for Taboose Pass here.

Cardinal Mountain, 4083 meters high, can be climbed via Taboose Pass, or directly up the east ridge from Red Lake Creek up a trail to Stecker Flat and up the east ridge. Should all be class 2, snow permitting. Striped Mountain (13,120'+) and Goodale Mountain (12,790') are also said to be class 2 from Taboose Pass.

The most relavent USGS topo quads are Mt Pinchot and Split Mountain , and secondarily Aberdeen.png and Fish Springs which are available in my Maps folder along with pieces of all 4 quads put together in TaboosePassMap.png

Here are some links showing how beautiful it would be. Description PanoramaBeautiful view from Cardinal in the Spring!
