Ascent Trip ReportAfter climbing Ptarmagin Peak, we used the traverse suggested by Dan Lauren (on the Ptarmagin Peak peakbagger page) to get from Dot Lakes to Butte Pass. This worked pretty well with only a little unpleasantness; took about 1.5 hours. From there we headed up towards Lost Peak. We got about 500' below the summit of Lost before we both ran out of food and water, and realized we had a looong way to go to get back to our camp west of Shellrock Pass. We turned around, dehydrated and starving, and made our way back to camp. Pass Butte was the consolation prize. The next day we returned and tagged Lost.
