South Ridge  Sucess!

Hiked into camp at the north end of Upper Sky Top Lake and climbed the south ridge of Cairn Mountain. Fun, solid class 3 scramble. I descended a chute on the west face...bad idea!

not my original target for the day  Sucess!

My route finding and navigation to Granite Peak was suboptimal so I clambered up the scree slopes of Cairn and had a good look at my target for next time, plus I signed the cute black forestry service scroll tube at the summit cairn. Some of the dates in there went back eight years or more. There was a nice snow bridge on the saddle between Cairn and the mountain to the west which I think was Villard.
