Shout of Relief Pass

TITLE: Shout of Relief Pass

GENERAL OVERVIEW: This pass leads from the basin South of Tully Lake and across the Silver Divide to Rosy Finch Lake.


LOCATION: John Muir Wilderness on the Silver Divide directly to the Southwest of Peak 12,238. HST Map


USGS TOPO MAP (7.5'): Mt. Abbot

ROUTE DESCRIPTION: Both the North and South sides of this pass are straightforward Class 2. The North side is very gently and ascends grassy ramps and small talus. Definitely a sigh of relief from the North. The South side is a little more tedious with more talus and granite out croppings but nothing substantial and nothing harder than someone on the Sierra High Route has not seen from especially the South. Pick your way down to Rosy Finch Lake or traverse laterally towards Bighorn Pass if you're doing a SHR traverse or part of it.
