Ascent Trip Report

This was the second peak in our Currant/Duckwater trip. It involved some light Class 3 scrambling up to Currant from White Pine Peak 11360, though it did drop down some. Time data is unavailable, but whole trip was a very long and difficult 14+ hour day. To this point, it wasn't too bad.
