Ascent Trip Report

this peak does not belong on any list. it has no prominence, and it has no views. but since it's on the CC list it kind of stuck out for a while. jerry conceived of this approach, andrew sketched out the route. we all joined in on a day with particularly variable weather: rain, hail, wind, and occasionally, some sunshine.

stats include side-trips to 1593, tulucay and sugarloaf.
