Trip: Gunn Peak - Standard Route

Date: 9/18/2012

Trip Report:
On September 18th, Adam, Brian, Ryan and I climbed Gunn Peak. We parked in a small turn-off just past the 4.2 mile mark and then hiked down the side-road, taking a right at the campfire pit; on the way out we followed the trail to the stream and found a simple crossing that put us at the end of the dirt road, avoiding the detour to the logjam completely. The trail itself was overgrown and very steep but not too difficult to follow. From the saddle between Tailgunner and Point 5760 we headed around Point 5760+ to the east, descending maybe 200 ft before climbing back up through a scree field to the hidden gully, which, although not visible until at its base, was a simple class 4 scramble.



After traversing across the upper scree shelf we climbed through the notch, across the narrow ledge on the north face and scrambled up the summit itself (class 3). On our way out we climbed Tailgunner, which was a walk-up, and Point 5760+, which was more tricky.

Gear Notes:
Any snow on route on the upper portion of the mountain would have necessitated ice axe and crampons, although we, luckily, encountered none.
Helmets optional, as rockfall seemed very minimal.

We left the trailhead at 7:30 or so and summited at 11:30, from there we really took our time and were back at the trailhead sometime around 4. I wish I had taken more note of the exact times like I usually do, but I think those are approximately correct.
