Climbed the easternmost peak and tallest 9144- probable first ascent as it required an aid move to enter a rotten crack system. Also climbed impressive neighbor GrandJean #4 to the west via similar tactics.
Not sure I really began this trip with the intent of climbing Grandjean Peak, but that's what happened. Began the trip with 2 hiking buddies and another friend that doesn't hike too much. We took the Baron Creek trail and crossed the creek after a couple of miles and started to climb the north slope. It was one of those hikes that just kept going, and going. Eventually I reached the 9105 summit and was the only one in our group to reach the top. The rest of the crew topped out somewhere on the ridged between the 7888 point. The views from the top were truely spectacular and I was greeted by a goat hanging out on a rocky face when I got there. Very fun trip exept for missing the creek crossing on the way back (just me... everyone else found it) and having to jump into Baron Creek to get back to the trail. Brrrrrrrrrr. Not Recommended
