Ascent Trip Report

We ascended Fisher using the Sunday Mountain trail then followed the ridge over Sunday Mountain, point 8522, and on to the summit. This makes a great ridge traverse at class 2/3. We left the ridge shortly before the final summit to ascend climber's right of a snowbank filling a southeast facing gully. Chased off by impending lightning, we descended into the Babcock Creek basin which made a quicker exit (and potential ascent) than the ridge traverse. GPS says 10.4 miles with total vertical gain of 3,650'.
