Unnamed but not Unappreciated  Sucess!

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.

Plus Black Cat Peak  Sucess!

Fun day hiking to Black Cat Peak, Summit Lake and Peak 11,568 on a very windy but comfortable day.

After Excelsior/Black Cat  Sucess!

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.

Bang for your buck  Sucess!

A great little peak with great views for little effort.

Windy  Sucess!

Very straightforward, simple hike. Very fun. However, wind gusts were very strong on the summit ridge.
