Besides goin' up Lyell Canyon,
Here's the ridges:
Lyell right of center, the rockier cone of Maclure right again.
You can see Banner and Ritter on the far left.

L to R,
Amelia Earhart, Lyell, Maclure:
This pic jumbles the order of the traverse,
Lyell is the prominent snowy peak at center and the finish.

Looking toward Maclure and Lyell, to the East:

We broke out the 9 mil and some big hexes for Maclure's 4th class:

We left the gas station at 4am,
"Rat Room" guides shack actually,
Stumbled back in at midnight.

It's a long march out!

Tar, I did that exact day, back in '99 or so I always wondered if anybody else had done that car to car in a day. Now I know!
Coolness is!

I put it in the book, for Jaun!

No doubt!

This is why I recommend real boots for peak bagging.
I had a light ax and the Robbins boots allowed a nice stiff kick in the snowfield on Mount Lyell.
Perfunctory, straightforward style of ascent.

Tim on the other hand, had a Ramer self arrest pole and medium weight running shoes; he had to muck around on the edge of the snow while intermittently holding onto the rock. He is mountain wise, and I knew he'd be OK, but he agreed an ax to plunge and stiff boots to kick steps are nice.
