Ascent Trip Report

This was a California Mountaineering Club trip led by Jack Cronk. On day one, we backpacked into Finger Lake. On day two, we climbed the peak via its Northeast Face. Since this was an early season trip, we were able to climb up the glacier to the top of the moraine. From there, we climbed diagonally up a ledge to a chute, then followed a series of chutes to the summit. The route wasn't any harder than class 3. On day three, we backpacked out to the vehicles.
