Ascent Trip ReportTo Gothic Basin - mile 0-3 boring shaded, 3-4.5 very nice water features and views. Gothic Basin amazing views and camping. Del Campo peak - avoid the snow traverses by sticking to rock and ridges, do not attempt in wet. 5200-6000 boulder field scramble. 6000-summit high risk, all class III if route correct, class IV/V if not. Do not ascend shoot at 6200, stay left and class III up rocks, aim for small tree patches. Personal: massive mistake crossing snow field at 6127, out of control fall and glissade to 6057, got very lucky.
