We parked on the Lost Lemon Mine sign and walked back towards the left of the creek (cairn) to start.
The trail is well used in the beginning, then after losing it in the valley, we started angling up the rubble. Wrong move. I then reminded Ian and myself to resist the urge to ascend any interesting gullies.
(1) Of course some payoffs had to be done for not following the proper trail. This is one of the descents we had to face to get through the jagged thrusts.
(2) This is the true summit and the connecting ridge from the south. It looked possibly dangerous but doable, so we're off.
(3) But then, the wind didn't seem to agree with us. Here's Alex retreating back to the south summit after a continuous hit from the mad man. We'll leave the summit for a safer ascent.
