Ascent Trip Report

Completed with Al Sandorff, for Al's final Olgul.

After ascending Mildred from Chipmunk Ridge, we traversed Mildred Ridge to Picayune Peak. To return, we retraced our path along Mildred ridge to Heavens Gate, then bore SW cross country to intersect with Dolly Ck., and follow Dolly Ck to car.

There is a summit register placed by Pete Yamagata in 1995. We did not find a USGS monument. This is not the highest point on the ridge.
