Corral Peak South & Elk Mountain.
Both peaks on July 18 2009.
Kimberly, Shaylee, Kessler and I went for a climb of Corral Peaks today. I had to work until mid-afternoon, so we got a late start, but the weather was good. After driving to the trailhead we hiked up the east ridge and took an old trail to the saddle between the two peaks. We climbed the southern peak first, which is the highest of the Corral Peaks. There was some minor scrambling, but we were rewarded by some fine views from the summit.
We returned to the saddle, having a snowball fight along the way and then climbed the northern peak before heading back to the saddle and back down the mountain. It was a nice climb and in great weather. The only drawback was that the sky was somewhat hazy and the mosquitoes were out in places.
