My 7 year old son and myself scrambled to the WCP-1 and Wcp-3 saddle at nearly 10,000 feet, but he was pretty well tired, so we returned to base camp at HooDoo Lake. I then scrambled directly up the ESE face over surprisingly solid rock for most of the way. The top is where I made a small traverse over loose rock and the top of a snow field. The summit had a film cannister with Rick Baugher's name in it from 2004. It was partly sunny and 60F.
Climbed WCP-1 during a backpacking trip on our way to Swimm Lake. Left my pack in the saddle south of the peak, and made the ridgewalk out to the summit and back in just under an hour. Here’s a write up and some photos.
"As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls."
