Ascent Trip Report

Fortress Mtn. Summit. Harlan took me to Fortress Summit today. I’ve tried to do this peak twice before but I was stumped as to how to handle the final approach. It’s loose volcanic rock also so it’s very intimidating. I wasn’t real confident but I kept moving forward and eventually we were on top! It’s the only Summit I had left to do in the Northern McCullough Range. We jogged back and completed the 9 mile, 2,000’ ish gain route in 3:54hr including summit snack and break. Thanks again Harlan!
