A late start (2:40 p.m.) after driving up to Horseshoe Meadows meant a return by headlamp, but it was a pleasant, easy hike.
The next day I climbed the un-named peak 11,320', with a class 3 summit block.
Gorgeous day for a hike! We tagged it from Cottonwood Pass after doing Trail Peak. We nick named it "Smak Toe" because of all the boulders near the top :)
Twice actually, but I had forgotten the first time (~2009?). Anyway, I hiked up this pleasant peak after Cirque from Cottonwood pass.
Easy outing with Bob Burd and Laura Molnar
From cottonwood en-route to cirque.
Exploring some new terrain, I climbed the two summits that looked like the two highest points immediately south of Cottonwood pass. One had a register that called it both "Peak 11622" and "Smatko Peak." The peak to the north of that one had no register, but had a fun summit block.
returned via Cottonwood Pass.
