Ascent Trip ReportThis was a Sierra Peaks Section trip lead by Bill T. Russell and Bill Gray. On the third day of a four day backpack and climbing trip to the Big Arroyo, our group attempted to climb Black Kaweah via the peak's class 3 Southwest Face route. Unfortunately, we had to turn around because of thunder, lighting and rain just as we started up the first chute of the route. Please see my 06-25-1988 Mount Kaweah trip report for additional trip info and stats.
