Ascent Trip Report

Traverse from Dicks Peak took one hour sharp, but it wasn't an easy walk: very windy, talus/scree with minimal amount of bushwhacking.
The only difficult part looked to me simpler than crux on Dicks Peak and it is not exposed. Easy moves are on the right (west) side of the obstacle, where one can scramble up a clean corner with good holds.
Descended to the saddle between peaks and then opted to go XC along the east slope of Dicks Peak aiming at Dicks Pass. Some scrambling, talus/scree fields, along with several snowfields, which allowed to refill water bottle and speed up by sliding. Together with Dicks Peak probably the most interesting couple of peaks in my limited OGUL experience. Estimated 15 miles, 4000 ft Round-trip totaled 9 hrs 10 min from Bayview TH, with sidetrips to Maggies (S) and Peak 9579 (aka "Kalmia Pk".
