Dove from west

Dove from west
CP looks east to Dove Benchmark (the rightmost of the two peaks). We descended the valley between the two peaks, then went on to "North Castle Butte", a slightly higher peak north (left, and out of the picture). The final route to Dove BM involves perhaps 20 feet of class 5, over fragmented tuff conglomerate/breccia.

weeds1920 feet of 5.5 on poor rock


Voted 10/10

If there really is a BM on top of the highest point, that's quite a climb for the BM placing folks!

Most of the post-1954 benchmarks were set by helicopter crews. However, this one appears to have been climbed, from the survey report in 1956. They recommend a rope to haul up equipment.

The main benchmark was stolen, but there is at least one of the "witness" benchmarks left.
