Ascent Trip Report

Parked at Mosquito Pass Road and Forest Road 856 in a clearing near a creek. Hiked up FR 856 till end at mine then cross open country to a large snow field. This is a 4 wheel drive road but not too bad. An easy 4 wheel trip or a rough outing for your AWD but doable. Put on microspikes and hiked up past snow to rocks and then climbed south face of Tweto. The ridge to Buckskin looks crazy fun (hard) but think I read it is class 3. Record snow this year so there was a lot of banks still on the East side of the mountain range but we could avoid it by hiking around the packs. Dan and Glen did not want to bother with microspikes and I wanted to play on the snow so I am the only one that climbed up the snow pack for fun.

Then off to to do the entire traverse to Kuss and London
