Alpine Col vs Keyhole

Postby Keegan » Sun Jan 31, 2016 12:09 pm

Great write up, thanks everyone! Can anyone speak to Alpine Col vs. The Keyhole (the pass just to the east, accessed from the North via Lost Lakes)?

I'd be interested to hear how it stacks up in terms of difficulty. I know it is listed on the map (http://www.highsierratopix.com/high-sierra-map/map.php) as class 3, which I would assume is harder than Alpine Col, but I'd love to hear from someone who has done both if one is a clear choice over the other.

I had planned to try The Keyhole, but now am having second thoughts.

thanks!

That first link is the same info on this page above, but I hadn't found the second one - thank you! That's good info and helps a lot. Next time I'll do a deeper search of existing material before asking.
