Ascent Trip Report

3-day backpack. Day 1: North Lake to Lake 11623 in Darwin Canyon (8 miles with 4,000' gain). Day 2: Lake 11623 to Mount Geothe and back (just under 8 miles with 2,900' gain). Day 3: Back out from Lake 11623 (just under 8 miles with with 1,600'gain). I just track the gain - the overall loss will be about the same as the gain. Beautiful weather and each day got easier, which is the way I like it. I can imagine it is hell trying to stay on sandy slopes all the way to keep this a Class 1 climb. It is not so bad if you up it to a Class 2 climb to stay on more solid ground in some places. All and all it was an enjoyable slog but I am pretty amenable to a good slog.
