Talus Pass

Postby RoguePhotonic » Mon Oct 08, 2012 12:41 pm

TITLE: Talus Pass

GENERAL OVERVIEW: This pass leads between the Table Creek drainage and Talus Lake

CLASS/DIFFICULTY: Class 2

LOCATION: Kings Canyon National Park East of Cloud Canyon along the Great Western Divide HST Map

ELEVATION: 11,500

USGS TOPO MAP (7.5'): Mt. Brewer

ROUTE DESCRIPTION: The Southern side of this pass only has one obstacle which is a small tarn lake. On it's Southern shore is a mix of small cliffs that is best navigated by hoping some large talus on the Western shore of the tarn. Although the Eastern shore has no talus hoping there is a small rock drop off that may be difficult to get around.

The Northern side is an intermixed granite face that requires allot of zigzagging and route finding. Due to the nature of the face no detailed description of the descent can be given.
