North Rib 3rd 1- 1 I 1 M 1a  CA : High Sierra : Mt. Tyndall
This is a decent 3rd class route to the summit as an alternative to the class 2 Northwest Ridge. The Rib offers much scrambling and boulder hopping until you reach the airy ridge and follow it up to the summit. This mountain has a striking view all around and makes one feel as though they are in Giant country....[more]   Browse More Classics in CA

Shepherd Pass is brutal, the trail sucks but its the quickest way to Williamson Bowl and thats why Anvil Camp is nicknamed Advil Camp.
