Ascent Trip Report
I finally got a chance to visit Mt. Angeles after passing underneath it a couple times. I wanted to hit Middle peak as well but there wasn't much beta on the ridge traverse and what I read was sketchy with people trying to summit Middle then traverse to Mt. Angeles because they didn't want to down climb Middle Peak back to Klahhane Ridge. I climbed Angeles and the traverse looked straight forward after getting around a couple bumps just north of Angeles. I then dropped off the North side for a bit, then swung back to the south side for the last of the ridge to Middle Peak. It looked like easy scree skiing from middle peak back to Klahhane ridge off the North side of Middle Peak, which ended up being true and easy. I also went and scrambled up Sunrise ridge as well just because it looked like fun.
360 from Sunrise Ridge:
My compass was having issues and drifting so I wasn't able to get a 360 from Mt. Angeles.
