Ascent Trip Report

If one is climbing Morey Peak, one should do this as well as there are conflicting reports as to which is the taller, and bagging the highest point in the Hot Creek Range is the point, right?

This is an short and easy hike/scramble (class 3) from the pass between it and Morey Peak. One can increase the difficulty of the scrambling by staying more west and catching the east ridge higher up.
