Hiked in from Summit Lookout TH and camped at Crater Lake. Climbed up the SE Ridge from Crater Lake to the summit under clear skies.

Climbed with Haydar (see his summit log below) from Crater Lake. We had crappy weather - snow and no visibility beyond 100 yds. Kept scrambling the ridge over humps not being sure if the last hump was the summit or not. Finally, arrived at a loose "class 3 headwall" - scrambled that and saw nothing higher thus concluded we were on the summit (consistent with map info.) I'm sure the summit offers excellent views of Red Mtn and inner Wallowas to the north - which we did not have. This "little" mountain does look a lot more impressive from the distance - we saw it from W. slopes of Red Mtn. the next day (see photos). Crater Lake to summit and back took us about 2.5 hrs.

When we got to Crater lake snow started coming down and our planned climb to Red was not possible, but Krag Peak looked still doable, so Radek and I decided to give it a shot. Without packs we were able to move rather quickly, skirted some rocks NW of the lake before heading straight up to the ridge top which looked like the summit due to low visibility. Once on the ridge we could barely spot few other higher points. The ridge scramble was straightforward, first west then north over snow covered very loose rocks and scree we reached the summit. There were few exposed sections but we had no views. Came down the same way. The next day when the skies cleared we were impressed by the nice shape of the mountain.
