On September 24-26, 2010 Brian Corrigan and Erik Peterson joined Kurt Wedberg for a climb of a couple classic 14ers in the Palisades region of the Sierra. Here in the Sierra we were treated to summer temperatures over 10 degrees above normal for this time of year. On September 24 we hiked over Bishop Pass and camped in Palisade Basin. On day 2 we got a pre dawn start climbing Southwest Chute #1 on Thunderbolt Peak. After reaching the summit we traversed south along the crest of the Palisades towards Starlight Peak. After climbing Starlight we descended back to Palisade Basin for a nice dinner before going to sleep. On day 3 we retraced out steps hiking back over Bishop Pass to the parking lot at South Lake.
