Ascent Trip Report

This was a bonus peak on day 8 of the Sierra Challenge. I slogged up the talus from the trail near Bullfrog Lake. The rock on the east face was very, very loose, but it stabilized somewhat after I reached the saddle between Rixford and Falcor. More details and GPX in the Bago trip report.
