Ascent Trip Report

This was the first and southernmost of our three peak traverse. Getting up was steep, but relatively open. We had a bit of easy bushwhacking at the beginning, but after that, the terrain was decent until we ascended to the sub-ridge. There we encountered very steep and loose scree with severe rockfall hazard. Once on the ridge, getting to this summit was the easiest part of the day.

From here, we went north to Currant Mountain.
