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 ...

San Gorgonio in winter

I've been up San G 4x or 5x through the years (including this past Aug) using Vivian Creek TH. I'm thinking about attempting it this winter with crampons and ice axe on Vivian Creek TH. I've done ice & snow hiking before (e.g., Rainer 2x, summitted both times). My question is how difficult is it to find the trail? Any other advice? Thanks in advance.
