Ascent Trip Report2015 Update - see my Mt Tyndall Trip Report 2015 for an updated GPX track that includes water sources and landmarks leading up to Shepherd's Pass.
Absolutely loved this mountain. The 60ft chimney, to quote a 14er.com member, "wasn't that bad." Seriously...don't let the chimney deter you from this route. It has solid holds.
Note that the GPX file is split into 3 segments by day. And the descent from Williamson to Shepherd Pass on day 2 got cut off because the batteries in Pat's Garmin died.
(PersonalNote)Day 1: oatmeal bfast, 2 poptarts, 1 grapefruit, lavash, nutella/pb, cuban black beans and rice backpacker's pantry (gross)
Day 2: oatmeal bfast, 2 poptarts, lavash, nutella/pb, gorp, promax protein bar, 2 dried figs, Highland Park 18 whiskey, DELICIOUS Bear Creek "Darn Good Chilli", pudding+whey, gummi bears
Day 3: oatmeal bfast, gummi bears, lavash, nutella/pb, nectarine, snicker's(/PersonalNote)
