Ascent Trip Report

Came up and over the top of Goat Mountain, camped in the saddle and we were really trying to take the ridgeline all the way to the top of Mount Ernest Gruening, but we quickly realized this would not happen and the top of Point 5294 was our high point for the trip. Amazingly beautiful fall weather! This was my introduction to lead climbing as none of us had lead anything before and Isort of knew how to place the gear. With Mike Miller and Kathy Still
