Ascent Trip Report

Part of the shortened Kings-Emmons traverse.

Had a great view to the north of a huge valley. The entire approach from the Uinta River TH, especially once you hit 10000+ with all the lakes, was totally gorgeous.

Rob stayed at camp.

This was the highest Becca had ever been (elevation wise obviously), so that was really neat.

Also, I brought up a Kings Peak Porter (obviously), and from this peak its a perfect replica of the image on the bottle.
