Ascent Trip Report

We did this in conjunction with East McCully Basin Peak (Mt Melissa). Please see this report for the approach information.

Once at the Wing Ridge Saddle, you turn west and climb the 400 feet to the summit. It can get a little troublesome on some of the hard rock with small volcanic gravel acting like ball bearings under your feet, so I would stay to the soft dirt areas on the descent. The trip across the ridge way more exposure that Mt Melissa, but not horrible. It does take some scrambling and sometimes I wished I had a rope for Ela to tie off with.
