We hit all 5 summits marked on the map and had to burrow into the summit of one to retrieve a fallen phone. We got it back. Fun peaks that see very little traffic.

The weather was absolutely perfect! I made it to the west summit and to the saddle before I ran out of time. Took longer then I expected and was looser then I thought. Will be back later for the east summit. Headed straight down to the valley floor and took Chapin Pass trail back to the TH. One of the more enjoyable mountains I've been up.

Total ascents = 2. First time from Chapin Pass via Chapin, Chiquita and Ypsilon ... finished the day by going on out to Flatiron then descending into the Chapin Creek drainage and hiking back to Chapin Pass.

Having already climbed Chapin, Chiquita, and Ypsilon we by-passed them and went around to Desolation. Desolation is well worth the effort with large angular rocks and a little route finding to get to the true summit. We continued north-east along the ridge to Flatiron Mtn. then followed the Flatiron ridge down to were we met the Mummy Pass trail amd out to a second car we'd left at the Corral Creek trailhead. Some of the best tundra cruising in the park is along the Flatiron ridge.

Increadible summit block. Made for a great afternoon hike on my 29th birthday. Easy, though long hike to the peaks and lots of dirty loose scrambling leading to the East summit.

Beautiful day at first, then a big storm moved in FAST. I dropped down to tree line and stayed low in a thick stand of pines. A little scary to say the least. I got to see a tree catch fire.



oh yeah...awsome summit!!!!
