#17 South Carter (4,430 ft.)

We must have hiked straight past South Carter without seeing the summit cairn or any sign to that effect. By the time we reached Zeta Pass the weather was deteriorating and we decided to bail on Carter Dome, assuming the views would be obscured. (Clem had already climbed it, moreover, and I would be doing it again when I did the Wildcats.) It was the right decision; clouds and fog moved in later, and I drove home mostly in the gloom.
