Long hike in. Bivied at 7,200 ft in Boulder Cr Lks basin. Got to summit 7am for low sun rising. Good moderate snow to last few hundred feet. Then fun rock scramble on awesome white granite. Almost could see pacific ocean. Rugged high country with Shasta and Sawtooth pk and countless ridges making a great view. Took 11.5 hours on the go with a bivi after 4.5 hours. Awesome and wild experience, yet not too technical either.
Climbed the east facing ramp up to the northern summit ridge with a friend. It was a nice moderate mountaineering adventure, with an exposed yet easy (like 5.0) rock finish. I've now climbed all 5 highest points in the Trinities!
