Mungoat Pass

Postby TehipiteTom » Wed May 30, 2012 9:52 am

Mungoat Pass

GENERAL OVERVIEW: Leads from Grouse Lake to Kid Lakes Basin (between
Goat Mountain & Munger Peak). Combined with Glacier Saddle, this makes a
great SHR detour.

CLASS/DIFFICULTY: Class 2


LOCATION: Kings Canyon NP. HST Map


ELEVATION: 11,640ft


USGS TOPO MAP (7.5'): Marion Peak, CA


ROUTE DESCRIPTION: SW side of the pass is gentle slopes. NE side has some
cliffy stuff, which you can bypass by staying to the left descending (to the right
when climbing from the NE).

Nice. Great comparison shot; now we just need one with no snow at all (the way it was when I crossed in 1990 & 1997). ;)
