This is a combined climb of two peaks in one day. Most information is on this page, but gear information is on the Del Campo page.
Del Campo Peak is in the Monte Cristo area, a region with a rich history of attempted mining development in the early 1900s. These attempts were unsuccessful and the town of Monte Cristo abandoned. Del Campo is named for a mine on its slopes. Foggy Lake is nestled above Gothic Basin, a beautiful alpine basin surrounded by Del Campo Peak, Castle Rocks and Gothic Peak.
We will do Del Campo (6610 ft) and Gothic (6213 ft) the same day and we will spend two nights at the same campsite. To avoid traffic, I plan to leave PDX on Saturday morning, arriving at the trailhead in early afternoon. Hike in to camp and climb on Sunday. HIke out and drive home Monday.
