Ascent Trip Report

I made the scramble to this summit after claiming Iron Peak. The snow in the large eastern chute was just far enough melted out to get across with two dogs. The stubby-legged one held us up in a few places, but it was nothing too difficult.

From the top Mt Stewart is completely unobstructed along with the tops of the Enchantments, with Bill's Peak the only thing standing in their way. Plenty of wildflowers and bugs to go along with them. The summit itself is highly exposed on the north side.
