difficult uphill stairway

difficult uphill stairway

Years ago I hiked & loved it all so passionatly. Often 3 weeks out, off season & made it up to a peak along the John Muir Trail that included a difficult climb up a Stairway. I dont remember the name but do recall it was really steep-I gained alot of elevation along this stairway but eventually made it up. Lots of tears- at that time I weighed 110lbs & my pack weighed almost as much as me. Does anyone know the name of this stairway? Queston #2-The highest I had climbed along this awesome trail was a peak around 12,200 ft.on the way to Mt Whitney. It was a glacier-does anyone know the name of this peak? Funny thing was there wasa frozen Monarch Butterfly when I got to the top. I have many awe inspiring stories of my many trips up there-Yosemite,Kings Canyon. Anyone out there want to hear?
