Ascent Trip Report

Drove up Mitchell Creek to the end of the road near Peak 10,563. An ATV track extends further north closer to Pearl but I parked here. Along the short cross country scramble to the peak I was able to photograph what I expect to be the Key Col marker on peak 10,563 (see attached photo).
Hiked to the top of Cass House, the bonus peak, on my return.
Lots of bristle cone pines along the ridge line. Beautiful!!!
Truly an enjoyable hike!!.
