Ascent Trip Report

Stephen planned this as a two day trip. We hiked into Terror Basin on July 22 and woke up on July 23 to a white out. After waiting around for a few hours we hiked out. 15.25 mil RT and 7300' elevation gain.

The Picket Range is pretty fabulous and Terror Basin is a scenic place to camp. Here are my photos:
