Ascent Trip Report

We started out for McCullough Mountain but deviated from the route too far south - we climbed over this summit to head back to the trail, but by then had lost too much daylight to reach McCullough Mountain. We built some cairns along the main route on the way down.

Still the views from the summit were great!
