Hiked up the South Fork Trail, through Bishop Pass and then traversed over rocks (too long and not enjoyable) to T-Bolt pass, then down to a great campsite near a small lake. Next day started about 7:45am to ascend via LeConte route. Had to rope up for a short exposed area. Made it to the summitt about noon and then made the decent with some rappelling. Back at the camp site at 4:30pm. A wonderful climb in perfect weather. Minimal snow in the couloirs and no ice axe or crampons required.
