Ascent Trip Report

Part three of a trip in the Snake Range to summit several LVMC 50 Classics. Sequence was Bald, Wheeler, Jeff Davis, Wheeler, and Baker (both summits). Car shuttle was set up in advance.

Once down from Wheeler to the low point/saddle between the two peaks, the hike up the loose talus up to Jeff Davis is a short one. The two summits are nearly the same height (East is official, but West looks the same elevation), so I went up both.
