Ascent Trip Report

After strolling down from Brown Benchmark north, I hopped over the Brown Benchmark bump and kept hiking downhill along the boundary swath. The pitch that leaves the summit ridge was moderately steep and the footing was sketchy. Lots of rocks were hidden from view, and some were unstable. At the bottom, I reached the col that leads to Boundary Peak 414.13.
