Ascent Trip Reporton my way home from rafting the Selway River in Idaho I embarked on a multi peak trek in the Wallowas beginning with China Cap.
OF NOTE: the main paved road out of Union is Medical Springs Road. The turnoff gravel road is Catherine Creek Lane. Next road is Forest Service Developmental road 7785 then 7787. This a maze of roads and using maps.me has been my go to app to find my way thru many of these mazes. Not perfect, but very helpful.
Approaching the saddle between China Cap and Burger I ascended the south ridge to the summit picking my route between rock spires and trees.
I descended via the same route to the saddle where I began my traverse and ascent of Granite Butte.
