Ascent Trip Report

From our camp at Lake 11398, we ascended to the saddle between Fiske & Mt. Warlow, then up the CL2 ridge to the summit. Our second peak of the day and a nice, fine climb. The next day, we went out over Haeckel Col to the Lake Sabrina Trailhead. The last of six SPS listed peaks (LA Chapter Sierra Club, Sierra Peaks Section) and this got me to 195. I started the SPS list in 2004 and finished in 2014 on North Peak.

A very successful 7 day trip in the wonderful and amazing High Sierra with very special friends!
