Goat Crest Saddle

Postby RoguePhotonic » Sat Dec 19, 2015 4:24 pm

TITLE: Goat Crest Saddle

GENERAL OVERVIEW: This pass crosses Goat Crest at the upper most end of Granite Creek and the upper Glacier Lakes

CLASS/DIFFICULTY: Class 1-2

LOCATION: Kings Canyon National Park 1.0 miles NW of Munger Peak. HST Map

ELEVATION: 11,470

USGS TOPO MAP (7.5'): Marion Peak

ROUTE DESCRIPTION: The South side is walking up grassy terrain to solid soil up to the top. The North side is steeper but is still a mess of grass slopes and granite slabs. The one time I crossed this pass I used an ice axe to glissade down a steep section of snow.
