Ascent Trip Report

Daryn, Keith and I climbed the peak via its class 3 North-Northwest Face route from Echo Lake. After backpacking in and setting up camp at the lake, we climbed up the north side of the peak to the saddle located west of the top, then followed the peak's west ridge to the top; the perminate snow field shown on the topo map had melted out, so we did not need an ice ax or crampons. Please see my 09/01/2012 Mount Haeckel trip report for additional trip stats and details.
