Ascent Trip Report

Kelley and I started up the Forsee Creek trail at 2:30 p.m. and backpacked up to the camp located near Jackstraw Spring, arriving around 6:00. The spring had some water flowing from it, but I wouldn't count on it later in the summer. The next morning, we left for Anderson Peak at 7:30 a.m., arrived on top at about 10:00, then headed over to Shield Peak, arriving there at about 11:00. Trail Fork Spring, which we passed on the way up to Anderson Peak had even less water flowing from it then Jackstraw Spring did. After climbing both summits, we returned to our camp, packed up, then backpacked out to the car, where we arrived at 4:00 p.m.
