Monsoonal clouds just about ruined my views today but I had a fantastic day getting out there again. SE ridge proper is fun, even with 25+mph wind.
After Lyell tagged this with Josh H as a day-hike from Tuolomne Meadows. From the summit register, it seems to be much less climbed than its near-neighbor Lyell.
Day 2 of the 2004 Sierra Challenge
Will Lyell Canyon ever end? Climbed with Whoa Nellie Deli celebrity, Joe D.
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.
