Ascent Trip Report

Bob Paulson and I drove, in my car, down to Buena Vista and thence to
Raspberry Gulch. We hiked two miles to the ~10200 ft. in Little Brown
Creek. Next day we hiked up creek to 11800 and then onto the east ridge
and summit. Intended to avoid winter snow. We met four people on top who
had come up the standard route. One had climbed three 14ers in California.
Bob headed back to camp while I climbed Mt. White, 13667 ft. I tobaggoned
down the side of Mt. White. I caught up with Bob at the campsite and then
we packed out, losing the trail and finding it again.
