Mt. Williamson & Mt. Tyndall Details:
Mt. Williamson and Mt. Tyndall are two of the most remotely located California 14ers. At 14,375’/4382m Mt. Williamson is the second highest peak in California behind only Mt. Whitney and the sixth highest in the contiguous 48 States. Mt. Tyndall is located close by to the NW on the opposite side of Williamson Bowl. At 14,018’/4273m it is the tenth highest peak in California. Both peaks are accessed via Shepherd Pass, which requires a long hike out of the Owens Valley floor starting at 6199 feet. Both routes are enjoyable climbs over trails, rocks, 3rd class terrain requiring the use of hands and feet, and some snow climbing depending on how much remains from the winter.
With the combination of fun climbing and in an isolated setting Mt. Williamson and Mt. Tyndall are two of the most spectacular “14ers” in California.
