Ascent Trip Report

From the col between Cabresto (which we had just climbed) and Cabresto Sur Este, all we needed was persistence up the short but steep grassy slope.

We descended to the col and then bush whacked down to the col between Cabresto Sur Este and Bull Creek Peak, saving a couple of miles rather than taking the same route we had taken up. I continued down to the trail and our base camp, while Alan climbed Bull Creek Peak. He is an extraordinarily fit hiker, and he returned to camp, after bagging Bull Creek Peak, just a few minutes after I did.

We packed out and walked back to the parking lot in two hours.
