We decided to do a day of sport climbing at Hawk Dome, to climb an easy mountain, and then take a rest day. Sounds like a great way to celebrate.
For the mountain, we set our sights on Mt Starr King. I though it would be an easy day, but ended up being a harder day than I expected.

After climbing we meandered down to the local, easy to find swimming hole, and splashed in the water.

The approach started off really easy on the Mono trail, we made good time, and I thought the approach was going to be a breeze.
|Yup that's it. Not too far away.|
