Ascent Trip ReportAfter enjoying half of our lunch atop Newton Drury Peak, Aidan and I headed due east up the face of Jean Peak. There are intermittent clumps of some bush that ranges from ankle-high to knee-high. They are mostly avoidable and should present no challenge to an ascent of this peak from Newton Drury. We made the ridge just north of the peak and had a fun time moving through snow, boulders, and trees to the summit. Easy to navigate but fun. The actual highpoint seems to be on top of a large boulder almost covered in branches from a pine tree. We dutifully scrambled up the boulder to stand atop the highest point, also scrambling up a few other contenders nearby, but confident that the pine tree-covered boulder is the highest. No register could be found, so we ate the second half of our lunch and headed south to our final objective for the day, Marion Mtn. Pics from the whole weekend.
