Trip Report

After grunting my way up Serendipity Peak, I didn't linger long in the fierce winds at the summit but turned my attention quickly towards a distant looking Patterson's Peak. Actually, my first glance towards Patterson's made it appear much closer than I was expecting. It's not until I actually started descending to the Pyriform S5 / Patterson's col that I realized it was further than I first guess. Typical. (Don't confuse Patterson's Peak with Mount Patterson in Banff, which I've skied. The former is a relatively newly named summit - August of 2000 - and much easier.)
