Ascent Trip Report

Traversed the southwest slope up, past the treeline, to where a talus field begins. Left my poles there. Then up on the western edge. The serrated knife edge keeps on going, and the actual peak is much farther away than it first seemed. It went up and down probably three times after the false summit, but I didn't have to stray very far from the ridge.

Last year, I had tried to scramble this one after doing Dege, Emma and Antler, but I approached from the southeast. That's definitely the wrong way to go.

This is one of the two most difficult peaks on the Sourdough Ridge, the other one being Mount Fremont East-1 (the one farther away from the trail to the Mount Fremont lookout).
