Ascent Trip ReportVenturing trip w/5 teenage boys via NE Shoulder. 80+ degree heat. Unanticipated 3-4 mile road walk each way due to road closure. Need to drive over three streams - one is particularly difficult for low clearance vehicles. Lots of salmonberries. Got 24 mosquito bites.
Saturday = 8 hours to camp at Cyclone Lake. Routefinding errors trying to traverse peak 5860. Road is flat and brushy, steep climb up dirt w/ample veggie belay. Trail is well-beaten in and flagged.
Sunday = 3 hours to summit from camp. 360 degree views. 8 hour day - camp to summit to camp to car. Kids were slow and despondent.
