Ascent of Gothic Peak on 2015-08-15
|Date:||Saturday, August 15, 2015|
|Ascent Type:||Unsuccessful - Turned Back|
| Elevation:||6000 ft / 1828 m|
Ascent Trip ReportTraversed too high along the southeast ridge and got stuck at a small crumbling crag below the summit. Extremely low visibility around 6000' -- Too fogged in to see peaks, cairns, or much of anything that might indicate where we were supposed to be going, and constant misting made the slabs and scramble sections slick and a bit treacherous for comfort, so we turned around.
Next time we'll head up through the talus -- seems to be the route most people take, more straightforward and a lot less sketchy than what we were attempting.
