Ascent Trip Report

This was a trip that I was looking for. Today i was going to shrink the list to one. North brother has been on my mind for quite some time not. Only two more on the NE 67 to complete. We booked our trip to the park for Saturday night and Sunday, we didn't see much wildlife but the park ranger suggested that we do the loop trail on this one. This peak was great. The trail started out pretty gritty from the start, once you get to the junction it wasn't to bad till the base of the mountain. the trail was pretty maintained and well traveled for the area. When you get to the base of this mountain you could tell it was going to be one tough tough peak. from the base to the top it was a rock slab like no other. it was about a 1000 foot tall rock wall. The peak over to the south brother was nice and flat over to the next junction. the trail up to the top from that point was pretty difficult and way over the .3 miles the sign said. we made it to the top of south brother, you had great views of the Klondike, valley, and good old Baxter peak. We then went over to the other peak. we made it to the top of North brother and down. It was a great feeling to only have one left on the list. Next stop getting married on the last one :)
