Monte Cristo

Monte Cristo Trip Report (#16087)

One of my favorite scrambles. Both of my climbs have been via Alta/Cardiff Pass and the east ridge. Once past the sloping loose scree slope it is an enjoyable exposed scramble to the first summit (11,050 - Superior...actually I call the whole jumble of peaks Mt. Superior). The ridge crosses another 11,000 foot peak before climbing to the 11,132 foot highpoint. Great views back into Lake Blanche and Salt Lake Valley.
