Also, we used Alpine Col route as we went over Piute Pass to resupply. I know that Snowtongue Pass is a little sketchy.
Dave T., I am looking at doing my second section of the SHR next year and am debating which pass to do, Alpine Col or Snow Tongue Pass. I hear that Alpine is very difficult due to talus and Snow Tongue can be difficult due to a steep snow field. I have been over Frozen Lake Pass and found it to be a little intimidating at first, but very doable with patience. I am not very experienced in steep snow descents, nor do I have crampons or an ice ax, so I am leaning more towards Alpine. Do you have any advice on Alpine Col?
