Ascent Trip Report

This was Tina Bowman's 3x DPS list finish led by Tina Bowman, Jim Fleming, Nile Sorenson, Peter Lara, and Sandy Lara from the DPS Route C/D trailhead. The drive into the trailhead took almost 1-1/2 hours and requires a high clearance 4x. The group of about 29 climbers was split in twos, with 1/2 of the group going up the C route and the other half of the group going up the D route. After summiting and celebrating Tina's list finish, the entire group returned to the trailhead via the C route. In addition, twenty-one people summited (unfortunately, 8 people did not make the summit), which included four 3x DPS list finishers, four 2x DPS list finishers and three 1x DPS list finishers.
