Ascent Trip Report

We left the Blind Creek-Tubby Creek trail (#171) near the confluence and headed cross country up Blind Creek. It is best to stay in and near the creek bottom, probably never more than 50 meters from the creek, using game trails on nearby lateral terraces when available. As usual, it is easier to pick the route on the descent rather than the ascent. We camped at ~6,600' just above the last trickle of running water. From camp ascending to the saddle followed by easy 2nd class travel up the north ridge put us on the summit.
