Ascent of Sunset Peak on 2018-07-23
|Date:||Monday, July 23, 2018|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||10581 ft / 3225 m|
Ascent Trip ReportWe stayed at the Notch Cabin, which can be reserved at www.recreation.gov. The drive in required high clearance and 4WD at the time of our visit.
The hike, as shown in the attached GPS track, was a delightful wander through flowery meadows followed by a steep climb on boot and/or animal paths to the top. Great views. Highly recommended (except for the bugs).
Note to prominence baggers - it is not clear that this peak is taller than nearby Hogback, also accessed from The Notch. To be sure of getting the prominence peak, do both.
