Ascent Trip Report

Sunday morning we headed up towards Jupiter Pk. We decided to get Grizzly first and started circling. We got to the Hope saddle and concluded that the snow and time would not work out for Grizzly. I went up Hope, a 13012 subpeak for consolation. We headed up the ridge to Jupiter, no walkup on that ridge, crossing the cuts. We made the summit, 13830 ft., at noon and descended through a rain.
