Mixup Peak

Mixup Peak is south-southeast of Cascade Pass and northwest of Cache Col. Dave and I took a small group of students to climb in the area in the Summer of 1970. We set up camp at Cache Col.

We decided I would take Kathy to Mixup and Dave would take the remainder of the group up Magic Mountain. Dave had tried to climb Mixup with Kathy on an earlier visit to the area, but backed off at the base of the mountain because the route was too difficult for her. From his description, I could tell that he had not taken the proper approach. Still, the imposing face gave me cause for concern.

This picture taken from Cache Col shows the imposing face that one climbs to the summit. We had to descend from our camp to get to the notch that is out of sight below the red line.
