Lamus Plus a few more  Sucess!

First did peak 5278' which I had a previous failed attempt on. Got it this time though. Then did Lamus via kind of a NW ridge approach. Stayed on the ridge instead of down in the canyon and it turned out to be a very manageable, fun, class 3 route up. Had thoughts of doing the traverse to Jenkins but upon checking it out from the top of Lamus thought otherwise. It is pretty nasty looking. Still wanted to do Jenkins and Campbell so after getting down from Lamus, I drove over to near the base of Jenkins and hiked up from there. The ridge traverse from Jenkins was longer than I anticipated but pretty easy, up until the last half mile before Campbell. About 6500' of gain and 15 miles between the four peaks. I also did Floating Island, Peak 6408, and Peak 6162 four days earlier. Really love this mountain range.

Not what I expected  Sucess!

Much harder than expected, certainly more than the advertised class 2. Spectacular area.

Actually did not summit this peak, but ascended the higher ridge to the north, that looks like a very pointy peak until you actually attain it and find it to be a very long sharp ridge. Used an interesting coulior to do this that is apparant on the approach. Also there were several mines we explored on the way, one had a dead falcon 20 feet in and another we explored for several hundred yards until we found bats and decided to turn back. Would have followed the ridge farther, but we had to get going to our camp to climg Ibapah the next day.

Northwest slope ascent/Ridge Traverse  Sucess!

Ridge traverse from Lamus Peak to Graham Peak. Spectacular mountain range. Rugged, far as I could tell, I had the entire range to myself. Interesting rock formations(arches, spires, pockets.) Abandoned mines everywhere. The Salt Flats make for a humbling backdrop.
