Ascent Trip Report

***Sierra Club Outing - WTC Experience Trip ***
led by Mat Kelliher, Pat Arredondo

First day we packed in out of Dana Meadowns and set up camp at the second set of lakes east of Parker Pass.

On the second day we followed the excellent trail as it switchbacked up the western side of Parker Peak to Koip Peak Pass. From the Pass we headed east cross country up steep, talusy, Class 2 terrain to Koip Peak. From here most of the group continued east slowly over more talus, very steep but solidly Class 2 terrain to Kuna Peak. From here we returned to Koip Peak and rejoined the rest of the group and headed back down to the Pass. At the Pass, all but one of the group headed up easy but steep Class 1 terrain to the summit of Parker Peak. At Parker Peak I headed over more easy Class 1 terrain to Mt Wood while the rest of the group headed back down to the Pass and then back down to camp the same way we came in.

On the third day we packed out. Mileage and gain for the entire trip.
