Mt Williamson, the second-highest peak in the Sierra Nevada climbing the standard ascent route is the West Side Route, accessed from Shepherd’s Pass. One travels across the Williamson Bowl from the pass, which lies between Mount Williamson and Mt Tyndall, part of the Sierra Crest. The bowl is home to five high alpine lakes. The route climbs gullies up the west face to the relatively broad summit plateau; this portion involves climbing up to class 3/4. Other routes exist on the mountain, including a significant technical route on the North Rib class 5.7 grade IV

Mt Tyndall 14,025 ft. is a peak just north of the Mount Whitney region of the Sierra Nevada just west of the much higher Mt Williamson. Tyndall is the tenth highest in the Sierra Range and can be done together with Mt Williamson, the second-highest peak. The North Ridge is our recommended route; a 3rd/ 4th class route to the summit offers much scrambling and boulder hopping until you reach the airy ridge and follow it up to the summit. Tyndall has a striking view all around and makes one feel as though they are in the center of the Range of Light.

Sierra Nevada Climbing – Split Mountain is one of the easier California 14ers to climb. The most straightforward climb is the north slope, class 2. Technical routes can be found on both the north and south peaks of Split Mountain, approached from the west or east sides of the range. A more common route to the north face is from the east, by way of Red Lake. Starting at the Red Lake trailhead, this trail covers 6 miles (10 km) with 4,000 feet (1,220 m) of elevation gain one way to the lake. From here, another 3,500 ft (1,070 m) of cross-country climbing, including a short class 3 ridge traverse, leads to the summit.
