Ascent Trip Report

DPS trip led by Tina, Mary, & Jim. We headed up from Columbine CG via the old jeep path. Ran into 2 hunters near the plateau. It was a very windy day, winds out of the southwest. The huge drop and gain below the summit kind of sucks. With each step down, I thought of the step back up I would have to make after the summit. Ran into a guy from Missoula who knows Doug Mantle on the top. We started a new summit log. The summit register is like a rat's nest up there. A fantastic climb in one of the most beautiful wilderness areas I have ever been to. A great DPS outing! Pics
