White Fork Saddle

Postby RoguePhotonic » Mon Oct 22, 2012 4:01 pm

TITLE: White Fork Saddle

GENERAL OVERVIEW: This pass leads between the Window Peak Drainage and the White Fork Drainage

CLASS/DIFFICULTY: Class 1-2

LOCATION: Kings Canyon National Park East of Pyramid Peak

ELEVATION: 11,830

USGS TOPO MAP (7.5'): Mt. Pinchot HST Map

ROUTE DESCRIPTION: If coming from the West leave Lake 11,320 on it's North Eastern shore and angle up into a section of drainage that is a gentle grass slope. Continue through it until it's possible to easily leave it on your right. Hook hard right and continue up mixed easy terrain. As you get closer a large section of rock will break the pass into two sections. Either is fine to take but if your on your way to White Fork Pass or the upper White Fork Drainage I recommend taking the saddle on the left. Just as you drop down on your left is a small ramp of black rocks. Go up this and hook left past mixed talus until the terrain is easy going to a saddle from Peak 12,064.
