Ascent Trip Report

After summitting White Peak, Niels and I who had met in the parking lot the night before and watched the moon, stars, Jupiter, and the comet from his telescope and binoculars, met up on the peak far ahead of all other parties and decided to join forces coming down. I started this track from the obvious saddle between peaks and we climbed up and around the false peaks and jointly got this extra credit. The views of White from here were different and spectacular. Niels and I both found the route up White (although long) not very hard so we felt this extra credit climb for a rated rise peak was well worth it. The ground was solid with all talus buried in the ground where no instability was noticed - just great firm ground to hike up and down. Well worth it.

Niels was in fantastic shape for a guy born in the Netherlands and now living in San Diego. He had no issues with acclimating which surprised me. He never breathed hard on any of the journey's a natural to peakbagging
