A side-trip while backpacking with my wife and dogs. Was originally targeting Thompson Peak, but was moving slower than planned and settled for Wedding Cake. Love this area, will definitely be back for more trips and peaks.
Route Climbed: Traverse from Thompson Peak (north ridge/west gully) Date Climbed: July 31, 2005
Easy bonus peak with Thompson Peak on a dayhike out of the Canyon Creek Lakes TH with Rob. Spectacular meadows, granite peaks, and wildflowers. I'll be heading back another time for Mt. Hilton, Caesar Cap Pk, and Sawtooth Mtn...
Nice weather in the morning, then a very impressive thunderstorm in the afternoon that destroyed my camera. Oh well.
