Description

A breathtaking view that surveys the granite domes of the High Sierras and the Rae Lakes Area. This usually requires a overnight trip (at least) to reach the pass, however, the work to get here is more than worth it as it is considered one of the best views in all of the Sierras, and perhaps all of California.

Overnight Trip: Usually accessed as part of the Rae Lakes Loop Trail, which requires a permit.
