Ascent Trip Report

Accidentally bagged this peak during an attempt of Mt Elk Lick proper. The climb was a little ill fated, as I lost my only water bottle during the bushwhack down from Lacrosse Pass and also forgot to bring sunscreen from base camp. This was a nice consolation prize, however, with unobstructed views save for Elk Lick itself. Climbed from the South, probably Class 2 or easy 3. I’ll come back for the main summit some other time.
