After years of dreaming what it would be like to climb Recondite, I finally managed to organize and trip with some great guys from Edmonton. Eric C, Ben N and Steven S all agreed to attempt the slog with me and we arranged for a 3 day trip, leaving the Helen Creek parking area on Friday, August 16 and hopefully returning on Sunday, August 18. (I warned my wife that it could be Monday before we made it back, depending on conditions.) Recondite is kind of like Lunette Peak in that only a few people make it enough of a priority to bother with hunting her summit. Judging by the register entries since the 1970's second ascent party, there's been maybe 1 ascent per year on average with more people ascending since the 11,000er book came out in 2004. The only people who's names are in the summit registers of peaks like Lunette or Recondite are either nutso peak baggers or chasing the infamous 11000ers list - no matter what they may say otherwise.
