After spending the night at the lake at 10,445' along Raft Creek I packed up and hiked the 700 feet to Tepee Pass. Here I stashed most of my belongings and set off for a mind-numbing talup hop to UN 12,175, Mount Baldy, and back to the pass. I can't say it was enjoyable or inspiring.

Once back at the pass I moved my things about half a mile west before stashing them once again and zipping up UN 12,285. This was a bit more friendly than the previous pair; I was relieved to see some grass occasionally. The views from the top were fantastic and it was exciting to get a glimpse at what my future held.

I returned to my stash and packed up for the final haul to Roberts Lake. Some bushwhacking ensued, which is never fun with a heavy pack. Roberts Lake to myself for the night served as a fine reward.
