Want Info on Desolation death march the notch?

Postby Gazelle » Mon Jul 28, 2014 8:33 pm

I am looking to do Desolation deach march almost Pyramid, Agassiz, price, jacks, Dicks and Tallac in a day and would like any info on the notch down from price on way to Jacks or anywhere east aloha etc. All I can find is go west from price down some class 3 then traverse to first notch. Pictures? More info? Probably just have to figure it out but for a really long day want as much information as possible and this is the last piece. Thanks for any help

It's been several years, but I don't recall any route finding difficulty in this section. I followed the ridge north from price until I could drop down, glissased down to the saddle and slogged it up jacks. Link to pictures is below, but probably not much help due to the difference in snow coverage.
