Ascent Trip Report

Came in through Upper Dungness Trailhead and camped at Home Lake on the first day. There was snow right around 4800 ft in the valley going up Home Lake.

Next day, we were about to turn around due to very low visibility but it cleared up.

Walked along the ridge to Mt Mystery. Dropped down instead of ascending Twin Benchmark.

Ascended Mt Mystery on the West side. Mostly scrambling on loose rock.

There was a mix of snow and rock about 300 ft from the summit. Used two rappels of 30m rope to get down safely.
