Ascent Trip Report

This was the third day of a four day backpack to climb East Vidette and Center Peak. From Vidette Meadows, Patty and I day hiked up the trail to Center Basin, then climbed the peak via its class 2 east slope. Also, I climbed the 10' or so high summit block by standing on a 3' high pile of rocks and using an intermediate ledge for my feet. Please see my 09-01-1990 East Vidette trip report for additional trip details and stats.
