Ascent Trip Report

This was a Sierra Peaks Section trip led by Maris Valkass and Ron Jones. On day one, the group backpacked from the Taboose Pass trailhead to Taboose Pass, where we set up camp in a rocky campsite near some lakes. The next day, we headed southeast from the pass, making our way over to the lake located at about 3500 meters, then made a right turn and climbed up the peak's northeast slope to the summit. The route up to the peak is class 2 and involves a lot of talus that transitions to bigger rocks towards the top. Afterwards, the group headed east toward Goodale Mountain, passing over Peak 3740+ meters along the way, to the Striped/Goodale col, then we climbed up Goodale Mountain's class 2 west slope and then its class 3 summit block to the top. Afterwards, we returned to camp, then backpacked out to the vehicles. Trip stats include ascents of both peaks.
