On the way to chiefs head  Sucess!

Great views of wild basin. Pretty steep bushwhacked from Sandbeach lake with lots of brush and boulders

Nice views  Sucess!

Its a nice mountain in its own way, but choose your route carefully if coming from Sandbeach Lake

Mt. Orton  Sucess!

On the way to Chiefs Head topped out on the rocky outcrop. Nice views of the surrounding area, but the pale in comparison to what was to come from the top of Chiefs Head, but it is still worthy of a visit on its own.

Orton - Chiefs Head  Sucess!

Hiked both beaks after a camp at Sandbeach Lake. I was amazed at the number of columbines near the summit.

From Sandbeach  Sucess!

We ended up on Mount Orton on the way up Longs. If you want to get into the basin from the North Ridge stay on it almost until Chief's Head then drop down.

Holy Wind!  Sucess!

en route on a failed attempt of Chiefs Head. Great views, but the wind nearly blew me to Kansas.

Orton  Sucess!

Saw this peak while trudging up Chiefs Head. Found myself less than 100 yards from the summit and thought "what the heck?". Spectacular views.
