Stevens and Stone (2002) proposed a complex structural history along the eastern Sierra Nevada and west flank of the Inyo-White Mountains involving two phases of latest Permian to early Triassic deformation, and two events of Triassic strike-slip faulting of opposite sense of slip. Several major problems with their outline of events include: (1) incomplete to incorrect representation of the structures at the Mount Morrison pendant, (2) invalid correlation of two structural domains, (3) lack of a unique piercing point on the proposed Tinemaha fault, (4) inconsistent representation of Triassic faulting favoring undocumented right-lateral slip over possibly simultaneous known left-lateral faulting...
