Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing***
led by Mat Kelliher, co-leader Bill Simpson

Nice hike up and along ridges on a variation of DPS Route B to pick up Peak 3292 on the way to the Whipple Mtns high point. Started out in a light rain which obscured the view to our summit which stopped a few minutes after we began. Low clouds steadily lifted as we climbed, and once on the summit they lifted to give us amazing views in all directions. Lots of up and down along the ridge going in and coming out.
