John Platt Completes the Fitsum Peak Quad

On August 7th John Platt climbed Mount Heinous. The ascent completed his quest to climb all 12 peaks on the Fitsum Peak Quad. In my opinion the effort required to reach the summit of these 12 peaks (9 ranked) far exceeds the effort needed to climb Idaho’s nine 12ers. Very few Lick Creek Range peaks are easy to climb. Most involved, long difficult crosscountry travel. Many have granite summit blocks that will test your climbing skills. Congratulations John!
