Title: Ionian Pass (Unofficial)

GENERAL OVERVIEW:This pass leads from Lake 11,828 which is Northeast of Charybdis in Ionian Basin into the drainage basin directly to the East that is South of Black Giant.

CLASS/DIFFICULTY: Class 2

LOCATION: Kings Canyon National Park East of Lake 11,828. HST Map

ELEVATION: 12,621

USGS TOPO MAP (7.5'): Mt. Goddard

ROUTE DESCRIPTION: The North Side of this pass is relatively easy with very stable rock that is mostly talus to small small boulders. There is a permanent snow field at the very top which was very short and the angle is not steep.

The South side of this pass is even easier and is literally a Class 1 slope that is interspersed with small rocks and grass.
