Ascent Trip Report

Solo overnight trip. Hiked in to Dip Top Gap, set up camp and then summited Dip Top Peak. The last 20/30 feet are definitely full of exposure, but not terrible. I scooted off the summit pretty quick as low clouds were rolling in and I was worried about down-climbing in a white out. Got back to my tent just as it became full on white out. Got up the next day, packed up and then went down the glacier until I found a good point to traverse up towards the northeast ridge of Lynch Peak. Lots of loose rock so watch our step. Also some decent exposure on the last 100ft or so of the scramble up from the ridge. There was what I would consider a 4th class move just below the summit and the rock was pretty crumbly in areas. Test the holds! Came back down the way I went up.
