Ascent Trip Report

Made it to 11800 but sort of got ‘cliffed’ out and couldn’t reach the north ridge.
I want to go back next summer and pick a different line to the north ridge! (Or the east ridge)
Day 1; trailhead shepherd to junction meadow
Day 2: junction meadows to somewhere close to the peak. Relocated my stuff to Tyndall creek ranger station in the afternoon.
Day 3: exit early , tagged polychrome peak from the pass and back at Toyota truck at 1PM.

Wonderful outing for late september; days are short now:/

Kern canyon looks amazing!
