Ascent Trip Report

Coming up from Rush Creek/Silver Lake resort trail head and camped at Alger Lakes the previous evening. Hiked up to Koip Peak Pass from Alger Lakes and then proceeded to Koip Peak and Kuna PeaK. Brought ice axe and crampons since snow was visible from Alger Lakes but upon arriving the pass, it was apparent that the snow field up the slope of Koip Peak can be walked around so left the axe and crampons at the pass. There was a use trail on the south side of the pass. Did not find and use it on the ascent but followed it on the way down.
