Ascent Trip Report

Climbed Delano Peak first, then this one, and then Delano Brigham. From there we dropped down into South Fork Pine Creek Basin. Joined trail 216 across The Pocket (Cool!!!) Hitting Trail 074 thru Bullion Basin.
We wanted to do Belknap and Baldy, but a thunderstorm rolled in. Hiked backed down the road to the car.
All in all a fantastic adventure and the trail sections were stunning, thru incredible forests and basins.
I call it the Delano Loop!
