Ascent Trip Report

This was the second day of a private, four day backpack trip led by Maris Valkass and Ron Jones. From Cloud Canyon, we climbed up to the bowl located south of the summit and then up to the south ridge of the peak, then climbed up the ridge to the summit block; in addition, our group climbed the summit block by throwing a rope over its top and then setting up a belay and anchor on the other side. Also, please see my 07-29-1989 Triple Divide Peak trip report for additional trip stats and trip info.
