- Padraig, Steve, and Yang also climbed Dick's Peak (about 1.5 extra roundtrip miles, 750 ft gain, on steep unmaintained trail). Ross also attempted it but did not complete it. If he didn't make it, there's no way I'm even going to try!
- Jinglan and Wennie hiked to the top of Tallac from the usual trailhead (10 miles roundtrip with a steep climb up).
- Sabine and Sandra hiked from the Tallac trailhead to Cathedral Lake (5 miles roundtrip).
- Cynthia, Guy, and pregnant (!) Taylor hiked from the Tallac trailhead to Floating Island Lake (4 miles roundtrip).
