Peak Six  
Condition Updates  
Route: From Sunlight Lake & Jagged Pass
Posted On: 2020-07-19, By: supranihilest
Info: From Jagged Pass the ridge up Peak Six looks tempting but to my knowledge has never been climbed. Take that to heart. We descended into Noname Basin and traversed around the eastern side of the lake that Noname Creek spills out of (Noname Lake seems appropriate, but it's literally got no name) on horrendous talus slopes and slabs, then northeast up super loose garbage to the summit ridge and summit. There wasn't anything difficult on Peak Six with the exception of just how loose and junky the rock was. We reversed our route to Jagged Pass and camp. Photos: 1) Looking across Peak Six's west slopes. 2, 3, and 4) What a trash heap of a mountain. NOTE: Since this was ascended a while ago and I'm just now getting back to internet, I've put today's date for visibility, since there hasn't otherwise been recent updates for the peak. I'll backdate this CR in a couple of days.

Info: The Guardian, Silex, Storm King, and peaks 7 & 6 were all in great shape. No summit registers for Guardian Silex and Storm King. I took the Vallecito trail 14.5 miles to the Leviathan drainage where I was able to find a good spot to rock hop across the Vallecito. Started with The Guardian. The Silex lake scree traverse really isn't near as bad as it looks. Just aim for the grassy ledges and follow a few dents in the scree. The traverse from 7 to 6 goes at class 3 bypassing the difficulties on the SE side of the ridge. This was a really long route as it took a full 24 hours. Saw zero people the entire day.
