Mt. Maclure via Southeast Ridge Date Climbed: Sept. 23, 2001
Came from our camp below Donohue Pass, crossed the Lyell Glacier to the Lyell-Maclure col and summited Mt. Lyell first. Then back down to the col and picked up Maclure's SE Ridge to the top. I remember that moving over a lot of talus at the beginning of this route was not much fun, but towards the top the narrow rock ridges made things a lot more enjoyable.
