Ascent Trip Report

This is one isolated peak - we backpacked in from Horseshoe Meadows and camped near the southwest end of Tunnel Meadow. It took about 11 miles and 1,000' of gain to get there, and an additional 5.8 miles and 2,900' of gain to reach the summit.

The scenery on and around this peak was spectacular!
