Ascent Trip ReportContinuing from Drury. We were going to try for Marion, but decided to turn around at this bump. Peakbagger has it labeled as Shirley, but there was some disagreement among our group about whether or not it's this bump or another along the ridge to Jean. I don't know, but they're both nice bumps. In any case, the route from Drury was another contour, and, though we dropped a bit, it was necessitated by the vegetation. We were starting to get tired, slow, and many of us had developed headaches, which influenced the decision to not do Marion. Since Jean was practically required for us to get back to the tram, we agreed we'd settle for seven peaks instead of eight and began the climb along Jean's ridge.
