Climb some or all of these alphabet peaks surrounding the upper Slate Creek Drainage:  Peak R "Mt. Bledsoe" (12995'), Peak S (12857'), Peak T (12660'),  Peak Q "Prisoner Peak" (13230'), Peak L "Necklace Peak" (13213')

Start on Saturday with a grueling 10+ mile and 2900' backpack from Rock Creek TH to Upper Slate Lake or slightly beyond.  The next day we'll start tackling these peaks, order of peaks TBD later based on preferences of group and weather .  Day 3 we'll attempt another peak or two, and day 4 we'll hike out (about 1000' of elevation gain) and possibly stop for early dinner before heading home.

Exploratory.  Leader has been in the area but not to these peaks.  Expect variable terrain including swamp, deadfall, brush, class 3 & 4 scrambling, and outstanding scenery!

Register with leader, email preferred.


Participants must be self-sufficient with own stove, water purification, tent.
Bring climbing helmet, crampons and ice ax.
