Ascent Trip Report

Guided trip through SWS MountainGuided Services
Three friends attempted Clear Creek. Climbed 6,300 ft., but we had to turn back from Mushroom Rock. We felt that we gave it our best & fortunately, had great weather for our adventure. Extremely hard climb with lots of scree & talus.. Footing was unstable a lot of the time.
