Ascent of Mount Independence on 2012-06-23
|Date:||Saturday, June 23, 2012|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||9950 ft / 3032 m|
Ascent Trip ReportTraverse from Cache Peak, then down the northeast ridge back to the trailhead. I figure adding this peak to my effort added around half an hour to the total hiking time, and the traverse to Independence is easier than downclimbing back into the lakes basin. Once I was done with Independence, downclimbing the ridge back to the trail was steeper and rockier than expected however.
