another peak bagged on the PCT. nice side trip from the trail. Came over from tinker as well. a little snowy but the sunny day was awsome
There is a ton of ice all over, take a small side trip into the trail tunnels on the north west side where you find crystal clear ice flowing out of every crack there. There really isnt a defined route on this peak when I say NE face the route doesnt follow that exactly but you do change bearings often cause of the terrain. Easist way to obtain the summit is from the south a few class 2-3 moves could take you to the summit from other more direct routes up the summit block.
In search of boulders to climb rather than a summit but was pleased to find both!
Came over the top of Donner Peak on my way back from Tinker's Knob. There were quite a few tourists up there, and no summit register to be found. A lot of fun scrambling to be had in the area... Descended a steep gully on the northwest side, and came out on top of SPRR's China Wall.
