Mt Lyell on Sept 25th

A forum to initiate member meet-up. Looking for a hiking/climbing/fishing/skiing/etc. partner, or are you planning a trip where you wouldn't mind having some company? Last minute invites can be just as fun as a well-planned group trip (sometimes even better) so don't be shy! And be sure to post a trip report to the appropriate forum when you get back.

Mt Lyell on Sept 25th

Postby NoBoHiker » Fri Sep 18, 2015 1:56 pm

Hi All,

I am thinking about going up to Mt Lyell (Yosemite Glacier) on Friday Sept 25th as part of a two day trip. I'll be leaving from the bay area. Let me know if anyone is interested in teaming up.

Cheers, Rick

Hey Rick,

Just a heads up, we were in the Ritter/Banner area this past week, the smoke from the Rough Fire, on some days, cut the visibility drastically, personally would not want to climb a fun peak like that, that offers such great views, unless conditions (visibility) were great.

Hey rick, I was thinking about backpacking somewhere in SEKI for a extended weekend. However Mt. Lyell seems fun as long as the route is class 2 or 3. Are you planning on staying just 1 night out there?

thanks for the heads up maverick, but if the weather is favorable, I'll probably still go.

yes, just one night or two at most. Drive up either Thursday or Friday afternoon and hope to score a permit for Lyell, otherwise Mono/Parker.
The route to the top requires crossing the glacier,. Some do it without gear, but I am thinking of micro spikes and probably ice axe which I yet to have to arrange for. Let me know..

Doesn't look like I'll be able to get out this weekend due to work. Have fun and be safe!
