Lost Basin to Cameron Pass, up ridge towards Mt. Cameron. Dropped back on the first descent, but should of took it with me as there were multiple spots between there and final false summit of Mt. Cameron where I could drop down north to Upper Cameron and Head Cameron. Final false summit before Mt. Cameron was probably most technical class 3, it can be avoided if you walk around below (if you realize it is not the actual summit haha), A couple tricky ribs of flaky rock/shale to cross over to get to Middle Peak, but it goes. Then just a walk over to East Peak. Reversed to middle peak, then just straighlined it back to my pack instead of staying on the ridge. Dropped down Cameron pass then went up towards the saddle between Head Cameron and Mt. Cameron. Steep climb up to Head Cameron, but just class 2 Talus. Was able to find big stable rock on the way up and scree for a quick descent. Then took forever to get back to Grand pass/valley and back to TH. Big 4 days.
