Kim and I started in the afternoon and hiked to Black Mandall Lake, where we set up camp. The autumn leaves are coming out and should be peaking in a week.
Kim didn't like the stream crossings, but it was a good hike to the lake. It was a bit breezy at the lake, but still sunny.
We woke up to a 29F morning, which isn't that bad for late September at this elevation. At first light we started up Orno Peak. It was chilly and windy, but the skies were clear and we made our way to Mandall Pass and then the summit.
At the fore summit, Orno Peak looked formidable, but it was actually an easy class 2 climb. After enjoying the summit we returned the same way, packed up camp and headed for home. It was a great trip.

|Went up to check out snow situation. Some postholing, but not too bad. Turned around at bottom of SE ridge for lack of time. Found an easier way down avoiding dense timber.|

|Beautiful area. 10 hour hike, 18+ miles for all 3 peaks, 3500'+ gain (see map). Zero people. Pretty damn outstanding.|

|Climbed the southeast ridge route. Great little peak with exceptional views. Beautiful area. Wildflowers were out and there were only a few small snowfields to cross. However, got 'turned around' in the swampy area between the peak and West Coal Creek and met the worst mosquitoes in my life. Just horrible. Also, be careful going cross country, the forests can be thick and difficult to navigate.|
