Sin Nombre Peak
By: Walt Wheelock
The DPS-SPS trip (scheduled for Lakeview & Tinemaha) ran into leader trouble. First John Robinson was grounded by illness in the family. Walt Wheelock took over, then after an hour bowed out with a gimp Leg. Arky Erb took over and pressed on to victory. Taking a different route, he led the dozen to the unnamed summit (7256'), which Harry Melts dubbed Sin Nombre Peak. A register was left with this name. Apex Peak was picked up on the way back, but Lakeview was by-passed, but even then the cars were reached after sunset.
Sunday the 6000' treadmill to the scheduled Tinemaha drew no climbers.
