Great long weekend at Hidden Lake Campground, spend 3 nights and bagged 5 summits. Summitted with great friends Keith F. and Jock R. via standard scramble route. Richardson was my 24th summit of my life. Perfect weather and dry conditions.
Bagged all three back at Hidden Lake and added a 4th, the un-named peak situated between Pika and Ptarmigan Peaks....saw where one other reported that it was feasible...actually did not make for that long of a day, besides the 7000' accumulated gain. There is a cairn on the un-named peak, so I am not the only one going up it. This is no traverse, you do have to lose elevation every time to re-tag. If solo and athletic, you can put these away and not even use the Hidden Lake campsite. Cheers.
