Ascent Trip Report

A two night backpack with Dennis Poulin from Little Lakes Valley. We camped first night at Dade Lake. The ascent up to the North Col just north of Bear Creek Spire as a steep rockfest and slog. It was even harder the second time on the return. In retrospect I wish we had backpacked into Lake Italy - A longer backpack day, but a much more managable ascent day.
