The Climb

From the 6,020-foot connecting saddle, scramble east up loose shale and rocky shelves/outcrops in a forest of scattered junipers to reach the south summit hump of Peak 6300. This is the official high point. It has no summit cairn. However, there is another hump to the north that appears to be of equal height. Upon investigation, the north summit has a summit cairn and a triangulation post on the ground nearby. Could this be the true summit? Perhaps. But, in my opinion, the south summit appears to be slightly higher. I believe that the south summit IS the high point of Peak 6300.
