Ascent Trip Report

Started just north of Stergen Meadows at the head of Arizona Creek. Hiked a road, then climbed open country from Ten Cent Meadow up through a notch. Traversed north around the west side of the ridge line to the summit block. Climbed a short third class pitch to reach the top of the block. Cumulus clouds and a breeze kept the temperature pleasant. Descended further west to avoid the exposed third class descent.
