Need advice on route from Gallison Lake to Ireland Lake
May 24, 2012 04:22AM
Looking at the map, it looks like the "pass" just west of Parsons peak is steep....impassable ? Seems like Chick-on had a report a while back on that route, but I can't find it now. Anybody got a link ?

I think maybe you are thinking about Chick-on Lyell:

Route and pix set was linked to here:

More here on route, etc:

You prob. interested in these from Parsons area:

Ok... now
I know I answered this question specifically before... but just can't find it either...
I think I said it was very steep on that ... but I haven't done it... only over
Hell Hole.. but I looked at it in great detail... and I'd say it is Class 2 as Secor says.
Now... you have to remember that you said that Hanging Basket was Class 3:
http://yosemitenews.info/forum/read.php?3,28503,28503#msg-28503

So... when you are below and you look at what you have to climb... then you
may just say.. sca-rew it...
I tried to get decent photos when I went up Lyell.. but I started at the crack
of dawn so I could get up Lyell and Mac on day 2... so the lighting wasn't great.



If you just look down from above... it doesn't look bad at all...


Def. looks class 2 from other similar gunk have done. YMMV though.

Hope this helps. Have fun

One more thing.. there's this gem from Basil:

Forgot to say... I'm pretty certain you meant the other west.

Yeah, I meant the other west (east). Thanks for the links.
