Ascent Trip Report

Started up bells canyon and made it up in pretty quick time. Even passed Shingo Ohkawa on the way up i was pretty proud of myself. Got to the upper lake and found a couple kids paddling around in a giant raft. Their dad came over to talk to me and he said he had hauled it up there 7 years ago. He said the fishing is really good. I got some advise from his as to were the peaks i was looking to climb were. Then i moved on up to bells cleaver. Was quite scrabbly and decent climbing to get to the top. I started from the highest point on the saddle to the South/East. Made the decent more straight down the east side and it was much safer.
