Ascent Trip Report

Fun adventure with Danielle Pratt and Josh Varney, started at Crow Pass trailhead at 6pm friday July 12th, 2013 and hiked over Crow Pass and traversed into Paradise Valley by 8:45pm and bivied here. After morning coffee and pound cake we continued up Paradise Peak and then traversed the ridge to Delgga Mountain. We dropped down to Paradise Pass and then down to Moraine Pass to the base of East Kinglet Peak. We climbed up to the summit of East Kinglet and then traversed the Kinglet ridge over Point 5175 to West Kinglet Peak. From here the ridge became interesting with lots of scrambling and traversing around gendarmes. We eventually made it to Peak 4515 and continued down the ridge to a camp at 2500' near Bird Creek Pass. In the morning we awoke to cloudy conditions and hiked out Bird Creek to Turnagain Arm. Here is a link to some photos:
