Ascent Trip Report***Sierra Club Outing***
led by Mat Kelliher, Dave Scobie
WTC Experience trip. Backpack from backcountry permit board to base of aluvium at southern ridge on Saturday 4/13/13 (50 minute backpack). Start at 7:00 am Sunday with climb up southern ridge system to peak. Faint use trail evident beginning at about bump 2820; easy nav and route finding by staying on ridges up to that point. On the way out, we dropped down into the gully at about bump 2820 immediately adjacent (west) of the ridge we came in on. Gully was slightly brushy, and contained a couple of sections where class 3 moves were needed.
Mileage and gain given are for entire trip.
