Ascent Trip Report

This was my third attempt to climb Black Kaweah, and I finally made it! Our group was fortunate in that we were able to sign the original summit register from 1924, which was only about 2/3 full. The summit register and cast aluminum California Alpine Club register box were apparently stolen from the peak in 2010 or 2011.
