Route Climbed: Ralston Peak Trail Date Climbed: Aug 7, 2004
Nice peak with great views. I didn't know much about this peak other than the trailhead was off of US-50 and the summit trail was named after the peak. I was pleasantly surprised on my first, albeit unintentional, visit to the Desolation Wilderness.
Route Climbed: East Ridge Date Climbed: June 15, 2004
Climbed up the East Ridge during a week of fieldwork in the Desolation area. Started from the Echo Lake parking lot and descended the NE rib to Ralston Lake and the PCT. Lots of class 3, and not a few tourists. No Juniperus occidentalis on the East Ridge!!! ^$%#^&!!!
