Ascent Trip Report

The use trail to the Butte County High Point takes you over Peak 7160, and this trip report includes trip stats for both peaks. Also, Keith and I ran into Swingshift Hiker at the trailhead, and hiked with him all the way to the summits of both peaks. One of the first questions we had for him at the trailhead was "are you on Peakbagger.com" and, of course, the answer was yes. It was really nice to talk to a fellow peakbagger that shares the same peakbagging passion!
