Ready to get knee deep in high Sierra streams? On the Trans-Sierra Xtreme Challenge you could encounter up to 13 wet stream crossings en route to Mt. Whitney. What do we mean by wet? These are crossing where we’ll stop as a group, change into our water or camp shoes, wade across, and then change back into our hiking shoes or boots.
In some years, and towards the end of the summer, there may only be be 2-3 wet crossings. The variability depends on the winter snow pack, time of year, and prevailing weather conditions once on the trail.
