Glacier Saddle

Postby RoguePhotonic » Wed Jan 07, 2015 6:50 pm

GENERAL OVERVIEW: This pass leads between Glacier Lakes at the head of Glacier Valley to the North Fork of Kids Creek

CLASS/DIFFICULTY: Class 1 - 2

LOCATION: Kings Canyon National Park HST Map

ELEVATION: 11,260

USGS TOPO MAP (7.5'): Marion Peak

ROUTE DESCRIPTION: West to East - From the highest and largest Glacier Lake angle up a forested slope on it's NE shore. What begins as a some what steep yet easy terrain climb quickly begins to lessen it's grade amongst meadow covered slopes. Continue on this class 1 terrain to the top of the pass. The East side is scattered with some small rocks but is mostly sandy. Rarely does the terrain become class 2. A use trail can be followed down the small rib that leads down to the first of the lakes here.
