Ascent Trip Report

From the East end of Buttermilk Ridge, we dropped down to the east a few hundred feet then took a ramp downwards. Tried to traverse and maintain our elevation, but it was more trouble than it was worth. We dropped down a bit lower and then gained the Oval saddle. From there it was straight forward to the summit. Dropped down to the little lake and connected to the old trail that leads back to Fish Creek Pass and Star Lake.
