At 8:00 a.m. Sept. 15, (1956) five die-hards met the challenge of climbing to Taboose Pass from the Owens Valley floor and on to Cardinal Mtn. The group comprised of Barbara Lilley, Bob Bear, George Wallerstein, Don Clarke and Bud Bingham. With ambitious spirits upon reaching the pass, packs were left behind and the summit was reached by 5:00 p.m. the same day. Darkness found the group at a timberline campsite one mile west of the pass. Sunday, a hike to Bench Lake provided camera shots of the lake and Arrow Peak. Three in the party took a cold swim. The hike back to the cars was completed by 5:00 p.m.
