Ascent Trip Report

From Gap Mountain's north peak, I took a series of herd paths/bushwhacks to the col between it and the higher south peak, where there was a large talus field. From there, I took a defined herd path to the south peak, which was wooded but had a very large cairn. There were also some directional views just downslope from the summit.

Followed a similar path back to the north peak, then took the M-M Trail back to the trailhead parking lot.
