Ascent Trip Report

Bushwack and scramble up the coulier on the southeast side of the peak. Looks harder than it is. Once you reach the top of the col between Reids and Bald Mt., it's a scramble up southeast slope of Reids. Again, it looks much more intimidating from the base than it really is. What makes this peak nice is that few people climb it because of the lack of trail to the summit and the sharp pyramidal appearance. Neighboring Bald Mountain (11948') has a maintained trail to the summit and is popular with day hikers.
