Ascent Trip Report

From the Glen Alpine TH (6,600'), I followed the Glen Alpine Tr, passing the old Glen Alpine Springs Resort,to the PCT and up to Dicks Pass (9,480') From here I followed the ridge over mostly class 2 with a short stretch of class 3 to Dicks Peak, the third highest peak of the Desolation Wilderness after Pyramid Peak and Mt. Price. After a break admiring the great view, I descended to Dicks Pass and then up the ridge to Jacks Peak. A magnificent day with views to match. I retraced my steps back to Dicks Pass, the PCT, and the Glen Alpine Tr to the TH.
