Spectacular. No wonder the Gorge of Despair is so seldom visited.

Ben, the approach into the gorge is from the top, the back in this photo. Reportedly the big steep slot in the photo has been canyoneered.

Here is a view few have or will see, looking up into the Gorge of Despair from the base of Tehipite Dome. The Cobra Turret is way up on the skyline.

From the photographer's notes:

"The Gorge of Despair photographed from the top of Silver Spray falls at the base of Tehipite Dome. Middle Fork of The Kings River, Sequoia/Kings Canyon NP, California, USA. July 1987. Kodachrome 64."
