You guys are SO light. I did the EXACT same routes in my dreams, one hand tied behind my back and a can of WD-40 in the other. Just the fact that Messick was your partner makes the whole thing HIGHLY improbable, but probably probeable. Jeezus, talk about "forward into the past" Now I am gonna have to listen to the Front Royal Kid relive his glory days for ever and ever ad nauseum. But, no really, thanks for the TR. You guys are SO light!!

Merci for the bump on this magnificent thread.

Mt. Lyell trip with Jim Shirley...all photos credited to him, please.
I'm too lazy to change the attributions.

Started from the car at 2 or 3 p.m. The Tuolumne facilities were closing for the season.

Bears struck the food stash in Lyell Canyon.

We crossed Donohue Pass at leisure (we are getting AWAY, not trying to beat the clock) only to camp in the afternoon in the meadows below, on the south side of the pass, resting easy, rolling fatties.

Arising with the sun, we trailed south to the turn-off from the Muir Trail to Marie Lakes and strolled up to the talus below the southern part of Lyell. Once on the upper reaches we turned a corner and broke out the rope for one pitch, then I got to climb a longish jam to the ridge proper.

We summited, then descended the cuppy glacier, crossed the Tuoulumne and went back over Donohue to the camp, then came out the same way.

No burgers at the Meadows for it was shut tight for the winter.

In no particular order.
