Ascent Trip Report

After traversing down and along the ridge northeast of Mt. Ireland, we summited to some better views than we had gotten from the lookout, with a good look at Rock Creek Butte and Elkhorn Peak, as well as some other vistas. We got a great shot of Ironside coming down, which has a very distinctive, free-standing profile from this vantage point. Traversing the basin was pretty mellow, without any big route-finding issues.
