Hello. I'm doing some presentations at Bay Area REI's in July that might be of 
interest to you if you want to hear about some non-PCT Sierra stuff you could 
do. Here's the blurb the REI organizer wrote and the dates.

The Sierra High Route & Beyond: A  Thru-hiker’s Dream:
Since 2002, Garret Christensen has hiked  the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific 
Crest Trail, the Continental Divide  Trail (a yo-yo thru-hike), and more. 
Tonight, Garret will share slides  and stories of his most recent adventure–a 
450-mile summer traverse of  the Sierra, from Olancha north to Tahoe City. Join 
Garret as he travels  the spectacular Sierra High Route, a 195-mile route 
(half-cross  country, half-trail) above 9,000 feet, which showcases the best of 
the  Sierra. Then, follow him the rest of the way on the Tahoe-Yosemite and  
Tahoe Rim Trails. Come learn pointers on ultralight packing, route  planning, 
route finding, and safe backcountry travel. Find out how this  thru-hiker 
extraordinaire covers 20-30 miles each day, carrying a base  pack weight of 
eight pounds.
