Ascent Trip Report

Really long hike via Lake Blanche. Did this one with Duane as an overnight trip. We hiked to Lake Blanche and set up camp before proceeding to Dromedary Peak. We had plenty of water but no food, so after the summit we were very hungry. Luckily we had our headlamps and made it back to camp for a late dinner before calling it a night. Naturally, we only had Duane's stove along for weight-saving purposes, so we had to take turns getting food in our bellies... We were the only hikers to venture above Lake Blanche that we could see. The summit photo is one of us in the dark on top of Dromedary. We climbed Unnamed 11,033 the next day believing that it was Unnamed 10,910. All the daylight pictures are from that ascent. Also, this weekend was Duane's 18th birthday. There is pretty much no better way to spend a birthday than backpacking in the mountains with a friend! Pictures
