Ascent Trip Report

Getting to Fracture Ridge from Black Mountain was over some horrible loose, rocky terrain. The peak itself appears to be the northern summit which appeared about a dozen feet taller than the peak marked "4928" according to my GPS (it also appeared higher). Once at either summit, the terrain to the south was considerably better.
