Trip Report

For some reason, Fatigue Mountain had been on my radar for many years by the time 2018 rolled around. I don't remember when or where I first heard about it, but it intrigued me as it sounded like a fairly easy ascent that wasn't done very often due to its location far from any parking lots. When I skied to the summit of its tiny neighbor, Citadel Peak, back in 2011, I was even more intrigued. I also remember mixing up what was "Golden" Mountain and what was "Fatigue" Mountain. They both look so close from the Sunshine Meadows and Citadel Pass areas, that they're very easy to confuse with one another. Now I knowlaugh
