Ascent Trip ReportDid this one with Aidan for New Year's Eve from Black Rock Campground. We were the last to summit for 2010 unless somebody else makes a night ascent before midnight. We met another group heading down as we were going up. Unfortunately as I look at the map, I realized that we climbed the wrong peak. We did the point at 4840+ to the north of Warren, which is apparently this peak, Peak 4,842. The Nat Geo TI map covers this section with some stupid symbols and I forgot my GPS. Oh well, it was a pleasant hike. Forgot my camera too - I keep it with my GPS. We hiked off to the north from the top of the wrong peak. No wonder there was no summit register.... I guess we will do the right one another day and remember the camera. Having been to the area, I now know which peak we should have done. Well, the trail up 4,842 is well tread, so it probably sees more people than Warren.
