Ascent Trip Report

Jim, Doug, Ken, Peter, and I backpacked to Lower Monarch Lake (pit toilet, bear box). Got up Sat AM and went past Upper Monarch Lake (east side) and climbed toward black marks on face above. After getting on the lip above the lake, we turned left and followed a use trail to the ridge, then stayed just below the ridge (west side) as we proceeded north to the summit. Beautiful day! Remembered Mom who climbed this peak in 1988, one of her treasured achievements.
