 Challenger, Kit Carson, Columbia Point and "Kitty Kat Carson"   

I finally got around to writing this one up on my website. It is from 2009. I figured it may be of value to anyone wanting to summit Columbia Point and Kitty Kat Carson from Willow Lake. Sorry it is an external link...

I could definitely see KC looking like a Klingon's head/face. That's going to make that summit even more enjoyable lol

I'm heading out today to do the same trip. Looking forward to my first class 3 climbing!

Great report by the way. Columbia looks/sounds a bit too intense for me just yet
