Ascent Trip Report

Today my friends and I, with packer support, moved from last night's camp at Bullfrog Lake to make camp on Tyndall Creek via Vidette Meadow and Forester Pass. Several of us climbed Junction Peak from Forester Pass via "Ski Mountaineers" Pass and then over a few gullies on the West Ridge to the summit. Class 2 with some Class 3. Descent to John Muir Trail and campsite on Tyndall Creek
