In the future, I'd like to help make this page more useful to other Mountain Project users by adding the ability to add subpages for each of the High Sierra Camps.

I envision there being a page for each camp, then pages under each for climbing areas.

Until there are other routes documented besides this one on Vogelsang this will wait.

There are technical limitations to how areas with routes and without routes can be added. We'll work through those when the time is right.
