Ridge travere with Eric Su and Mason. Ridge to Dunderberg was fun class 3-4.
I climbed Peak 11568 and then both ears of Black Cat Peak. Peak 11568 seemed so much farther than it appeared from the pass! It's a worthy peak, though, with excellent views.
Fun day hiking to Black Cat Peak, Summit Lake and Peak 11,568 on a very windy but comfortable day.
An afterthought on my way back down from Black Cat/Excelsior.
There's somewhat of a use trail along the 11,568 approach ridge- but this dissipates to nothing about halfway to the summit.
Pics and commentary are here.
A great little peak with great views for little effort.
Very straightforward, simple hike. Very fun. However, wind gusts were very strong on the summit ridge.
