Ascent Trip Report

Climbed this peak as part of a 2 night traverse. First day we started at Crow pass trail head, went up and over paradise pass, climbed East and West Kinglet (wish we had included 4515) Aprox. 7,020 ft. ascended and 5060 descent. Next day ascended Pyramid Point, Synclavier, and Synthesizer Peak, Aprox. 3460 Ascended. Final day returned climbing Delgga Mountain. The scree on the face going over Paradise pass would be quite unpleasant in wet conditions. Also we dropped down too early from our traverse from Paradise peak towards Clear creak; it resulted in about a 45 min. bushwack to get to the crow pass trail This day we Ascended approx. 4,680 and Descended 6,660.

Great trip and spending 2 nights made it quite manageable.
