finally summited pika peak from hidden lake,went up a waterfall that was very steep to gain a ledge that I could have taken earlier closer to ptarmigan pk. trrpl
Bagged all three back at Hidden Lake and added a 4th, the un-named peak situated between Pika and Ptarmigan Peaks....saw where one other reported that it was feasible...actually did not make for that long of a day, besides the 7000' accumulated gain. There is a cairn on the un-named peak, so I am not the only one going up it. This is no traverse, you do have to lose elevation every time to re-tag. If solo and athletic, you can put these away and not even use the Hidden Lake campsite. Cheers.
