Ascent Trip Report

The ascent of Helens Dome went well with class 3 scrambling. We descended Helens Dome to the southeast and attempted to reach Bowie Mountain from there. However, we were stopped high on the west ridge of Bowie Mountain by cliffs without an obvious way down and around, and by a lack of time to explore thoroughly.
