TITLE: Gabbot Pass

GENERAL OVERVIEW:
This pass leads from Lake Italy into the 2nd Recess and passes by Upper and Lower Mills Creek lakes.

CLASS/DIFFICULTY:
Class 2

LOCATION:
John Muir Wilderness in Sierra National Forest. Located on the ridge-line between Mt. Gabb and Mt. Abbot. HST Map

USGS TOPO MAP (7.5'): Mt. Abbot/Mt. Hilgard

ROUTE DESCRIPTION:
A classic Sierra High Route Pass. The South side of this pass is easy with granite benches and some grassy slopes.

The North side goes through narrower talus fields with some large boulders until it descends down to a tarn. After the tarn and after passing Upper Mills Creek lake, Lower Mills Creek Lake comes into view and one can decide to follow the creek down through some brush or go through granite benches and slopes down to the lake. After that the route occasionally follows a faint trail down into the 2nd Recess.
