Ascent Trip Report

Lee F. and I headed out noon Saturday and made camp in American Basin. Sunday morning
we got an early start. We climbed to a saddle west of American (un 13806), contoured over and ascended Jones Mtn (13860 ft.). We descended and then climbed Niagara Pk (13807 ft.). We returned over Jones and continued over to American (un 13806 ft.) I looked for a way to continue on to Handies Peak, but I could not find any easy or moderate way to do it. It is cliffed out. I ran out of energy, gave up and followed Lee F. down.
