The Tyndall Effect 5.6 4c 14 V S 4b  CA : High Sierra : Mt. Tyndall
Mt. Tyndall lies to the west of Mt. Williamson right off of Shepherd's Pass. It was first climbed on July 6, 1864 by Clarence King and Richard Cotter. If one views Tyndall from the northeast there is a clear buttress separating the East and North-East face. The Tyndall Effect is just to the right of the Northeast Arete or buttress.

And further right of that is the North Rib route (class 3)...[more]   Browse More Classics in CA
