Ascent Trip Report

I reached the ridge 1.2 miles south of North Schell but only 0.5 miles from Schell Creek Peak 3595 so I decided to bag Schell Peak (3595) and walk the ridge to North Schell Peak which made for a long day but I was able to bag both peaks. Walked through a splendid bristle cone pine forest on the way down. An example is below
