Ascent Trip Report

Lots of snow still in the ascent chutes. I took an arete with some breathtaking exposure to avoid the snow. No register. A fantastic peak with outstanding views. Of the three in the Grant Range, this one comes in first, and Currant second. Duckwater is, well, a duck. In drier conditions, this can be a steep, loose, but class 2 climb.
