Ascent Trip Report

After having done White Mountain Peak and Boundary & Montgomery Peak I had begun contemplating a White Mt range traverse but I wanted to see what would be waiting for me in between. Starting from hard to find Middle Creek Canyon I went up to Mount Dubois who greeted me with severe winds and gusts that forced me to the ground. I bundled up and moved on to The Jumpoff but didnt find much time to look at its scary north face because the wind was outrageous. On my way back I tried to cut short and was punished with severe bushwhacking. What a luck that I could rinse of the dirt in the stream near my camp.
