Ascent Trip Report

This one was a little more of a bump, but still really just an easy walkup. It has a summit register calling it "Middle Schell Peak". The final push to North Schell is a good one, with fabulous views from the summit. Hiking down this peak required a little Class 2 light scrambling as well.
