Ascent Trip Report

Day 2 of a 4 day trip. Left Mahogany Flat around 9:15 and proceeded up the Shepherds Pass Trail. Attained the pass around 4 hours later. Made our way over towards the tarn that lays between Polychrome Peak and Mount Tyndall where we set up camp. After filtering water we hiked up the southwest ridgeline to the summit. We scree skied back down the hill to the tarn and then back to camp. Easy first peak of the trip.
