Mount Irvine is one of the peaks that straddles the Whitney Zone boundary. It is 13,770' high and offers fantastic views of the Whitney zone, decent views to the west, and poor views of the Meysan Lake Basin. There are numerous routes to gain the peak. I used the east chute which is found between Irvine's east buttress and Mount Mallory's NE buttress, on the south side of Meysan Lake. This chute takes you to a scree plateau and then it is an easy walk to the peak, unless you throw in some climbing to make it more interesting, like I did. The chute had a lot of snow in it, and I was actually surprised how much snow was in a lot of the gullies and chutes around Meysan Lake in mid-August.
