That's also Pyra-queen Col, which is also the main way to get to Kaweah Basin. The route goes over the Col angling right and towards the low point in the photo.

The Col is a miserable pile of loose, class 2 crud on this side of the col, with a long stretch of talus on the other side. It's one of the worst cross-country passes I've crossed. However, Kaweah Basin is an outstanding destination, well worth every bit of misery getting there.

That col looks brutal. Think I'd rather hike in from Shepards Pass even...............( ok - the long way, but the scenic way )!!

It's one of those experiences where you just have to bear down for about four hours and get it over with.
