Lodges and Huts

Letters of Peter Grubb
September 11, 1935

Dear Grandpa and Nannie,

I just received the six dollars; it certainly is a grand prize to get for just seeing mountain sheep. Tuesday morning at 3 o'clock I got back from Yosemite after a grand weekend of climbing.

I went up Friday night and got in the valley at 11 o'clock Saturday a bunch of us went up past Nevada falls to the top of Starr King. It was quite a climb. From it we saw Mt. Clark and that range, the peaks around Twolume Meadows, the Sawtooth range and Matterhorn Peak where we were with the Sierra Club in 1934.

On Sunday we watched 3 boys climb the highest spire (a 4th ascent).

On Monday two boys and myself climbed half way up the Washington Column, the 2nd most difficult climb next to the Spires in the valley, and we left 6 o'clock that night.

Hope you are all well.

Love from Peter
