Ascent Trip ReportBernice Lake (10,200') Mule Pack trip base camp. Linda Emerson backpacked in to join Peter and me for Mt Florence. Started 6am, returned 6:30pm. Took trail down to Florence drainage, then up slabs and talus to halfway along south side of the lake above Florence Lake. Turned south and climbed to notch. Turned east and made way through mostly sandy areas in talus to false summit, then descended, then up to true summit at 1pm. Great views all around! Descended to notch, then continued around lake and headed back to Bernice Lake xc without going down Florence drainage.
