Ascent Trip Report

This was the third day of a three day backpack trip to climb Mount Pinchot and Mount Wynne. From the lake located east of the peak, I left for Mount Wynne at 6:00 a.m., making my way up the peak's east ridge. At around 12,800’ in elevation, I circled around to the south side of the peak, then made my way up to the summit. I was on top at 7:20 a.m. and the route was mostly class 1 up the ridge and class 2 near the summit. Afterwards, I descended back down the peak to camp, which took less than one hour.Please see my 07/26/2008 Mount Pinchot trip report for route description and additional trip stats.
