Ascent of El Diente on 2015-07-27
|Others in Party:||Collin Kamholz|
|Date:||Monday, July 27, 2015|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||14159 ft / 4315 m|
Ascent Trip ReportThe lower part of the Kilpacker Basin trail was very frustrating with considerable loss and regain of elevation, and much sloppy mud (some of which did dry out during the day). The upper part of the trail was better- a good trail over crappy talus. The route from the trail to the summit was a bit unclear- there were several cairned routes (probably built to accommodate different snow conditions), but it looked like all routes were fairly similar (class 3 mixed with crappy loose class 2).
We climbed it with hopes of continuing on to Mount Wilson, but we found this climb more tiring than we were expecting, and given the weather was windy with chance of afternoon storms so we elected to descend.
