Ascent Trip Report

I looked on Google Earth and believe that I found the spot where we camped for two nights in Agassiz Basin. Here are the coordinates: 48.934562°N 114.150257°W. Here's the link to the satellite view on Acme Mapper. This was a fantastic campsite and well worth the effort to haul packs that high into the basin. The peak is within easy reach from there, and we were able to hike all the way down to the camp at the east end of Kintla Lake the day after the climb.

Note that I did not attempt to calculate the extra elevation gain, so only the net is shown. There is quite a bit of up and down along the trail and off-trail, including the descent of the gully from the Peabody-8190 col to the Agassiz Basin, which starts here: 48.946325°N 114.128926°W.
