Our route led south from Yang Yang Lakes, then we left the beaten track along the Flat Creek drainage and ascended talus toward the saddle on the ridge north of Le Conte Mountain. August 5, 1988. Photo by Dave Allen.

This shot shows what the map can't -- it looks like hot, hard, dangerous work. We hiked up meadow from Yang Yang Lakes and cruised the ridge above. Thanks for showing what the alternate is like.

Yeah, we later wished we'd found a much better route. It was early in the day, so at least it wasn't hot, but it was hard and dangerous. It was also time consuming, and almost made us miss the high col before the clouds socked it in that afternoon. We had line of sight through that col and over toward White Rock Lakes before we were engulfed in the driven fog. Luckily found a decent bivy site before dropping down to the glacier. It was the second of three storms that affected our trip.
