Ascent Trip Report

This is a great bonus peak I would recommend for anyone coming out to Jumbo. It's an easy ascent with great views. The only disadvantage is if ascending Jumbo Peak from the north end, one must go around Jumbo from the ridge. We took a crack on the east side that went through but got tight in spots.
