I just got back from the end of Lyell Canyon around Donahue Pass. I was wondering if any one else has considered climbing much in the area.
There are some just beautiful walls up there.

I've climbed all the peaks in this area, but nothing with a rope. There is some amazing stuff around the area. I was told some Vogelsang High Camp alumni have put routes up there. Dawson? I'll ponder the names a bit, but I've seen old hand drawn topos at some of the High Camps. Don't know if they are still there.
The Kuna Crest is a traverse test piece that I can't get out of my mind even years later. Bring a rope for it if you do it. I think it is in the Peaks Passes and Trails book. Mammoth Peak to Kuna Peak with many high points in between. Trying to find good info on it can be tough. You might wonder why it is obscure even though it dominates the area between Gibbs and Lyell.
