Trip Report

After spending an amazing morning approaching and ascending Watermelon Peak, Phil and I decided that we had enough time and energy to give Bobac Mountain a shot as part of a day trip from the Helen Creek parking lot. Due to a last minute change of objectives (we had a longer day trip originally planned), neither of us had done very much research on Bobac other than finding Josee's trip report - one of only a few available online. Josee's group found a pretty nifty scree bench traverse along the east face that they first spotted from Watermelon Peak.
