Ascent Trip Report

I hiked in from Gothic Basin Trailhead on 9/2 around 9am. I reached to Foggy lake campsite around noon.
After eating lunch and relaxed a bit near the lakeshore, I started to head to Gothic Peak. It should be class 3+ which doesn't require rope etc. Just rock scrambling.

It took for a while to reach to the rock scrambling area of Gothic Peak from the Foggy Lake campsite because the route was very tricky, a lot of boulders, snow patches, some rocks slides, screes.
Nontheless, it didn't stop me, eventually I reach to the rock scrambling area. From there, it was probably 10-15mins to climb up. Very short to the summit. The view from the top was spectacular...
Next day after camping, I did Del Campo. That was also nice summit to peakbag.
