White Mountain Access

Hi everybody

Does anyone knows how far we can drive on the White Mountain Road? We have a 4wd.

Is the road drive-able all the way to the gate one mile below Schulman Grove?

Would anyone know?


The Bishop Ranger Station only gives out general info, nothing specific.

Unknown Photo

The home page of the Tulare County internet site (http://www.tularecounty.ca.gov) displays a photo titled just "mountains in Tulare County". The main peak in the photo looks a lot like Mt Silliman from the north, but none of the surrounding peaks look right. Can anybody ID where the photo was taken from?

Tyndall/Williamson Day hike record

From looking around, the fastest time via shepherds pass trail is 15 hours car-to-car. That was 15 years ago though, and I'm sure the record has been broken since. Does anyone know if someone has done it in a faster time? Also, would it be faster to summit Tyndall and then hit Williamson, or vice versa?

Mt. Lyell Early Season

Hi all!

A couple of my hiking partners and I got a JMT permit out of Lyell Canyon for June 18 about two days before all these huge storms hit, back when the snowpack was 35% of average to date. Obviously, we are rethinking these plans, but don't want to relinquish a Lyell Canyon permit so quickly!

What does Mt. Lyell look like in the early season? Presumably there's no crevasse danger that early, but ...

Mt. Williams / Palisades

Has anyone been up this overlooked summit between Norman Clyde Peak and Palisades Crest? Specifically from the Clyde Glacier side in August? The only route info I can find is the 700ft snow/ice couloir that Secor mentions without a rating. In August I expect that to be pretty much ice and am wondering if the rock faces to the left or right can be climbed at class 4 to low 5. Alternatively, does anyone know ...
