Setember 11 2009
Justin Kuhn and I climbed Meaden Peak in the Elkhead Mountains. I had wanted to climb Meaden Peak since it’s the highest mountain in the Elkhead Mountains that I had not climbed yet and Justin thought it sounded like a good climb.
We drove the rough road to the trailhead and started up the mountain. From the east, the mountain didn’t look very impressive at first, but we were looking at a false summit. We climbed over the false summit and then found another one….and another one…..I believe there were a total of five. It was a good thing though as every summit we reached had a better view and became more aesthetic.
The summit was interesting and had a great view plus a few rock outcrops to scramble up for fun. We took a long break at the summit and headed back down the same way.
