Great views of wild basin. Pretty steep bushwhacked from Sandbeach lake with lots of brush and boulders

Its a nice mountain in its own way, but choose your route carefully if coming from Sandbeach Lake

On the way to Chiefs Head topped out on the rocky outcrop. Nice views of the surrounding area, but the pale in comparison to what was to come from the top of Chiefs Head, but it is still worthy of a visit on its own.

Hiked both beaks after a camp at Sandbeach Lake. I was amazed at the number of columbines near the summit.

We ended up on Mount Orton on the way up Longs. If you want to get into the basin from the North Ridge stay on it almost until Chief's Head then drop down.

Saw this peak while trudging up Chiefs Head. Found myself less than 100 yards from the summit and thought "what the heck?". Spectacular views.
