Route Climbed: Pilot Traverse Date Climbed: August 19, 2005
I chose to combine Pilot Mountain and Mount Brett for an 8400’, 12.5 hour day. Not recommended for the faint of heart, but worth knocking out Brett if you are already at Pilot’s summit. The descent route I chose from Mount Brett was a pain. However, I enjoyed the summit ridge on Brett the most. Pilot’s summit block was a fun challenge as well, just not as scenic. Kane’s book could really use some updating and revising on this one. Cheers.
