"Starting out at Dawson Saddle, I traversed the PCT to Mt Burnham and Mt Baden-Powell. After a brief rest and snack at the summit of Baden-Powell, I proceeded down the south ridge. The marine layer was thick and I could see Ross Mountain's summit barely peaking above the clouds. I had hoped it would remain that way for me while visiting. The long descent along the ridge was an accomplishment in itself while taking roughly 2 hours to reach the summit from Baden-Powell. I passed two hikers coming from the summit of Ross. We were all surprised to see another human out there. Surprisingly, the summ" - Peak-Conquistador, May 12, 2018

Ross was Jim Kidder's 100th HPS peak! It was a good day to do Ross--fairly cool, a good bit of c" - HikerMark, Jun 6, 2015
"Sub-list 14 finish. The drop off and reclimb of Baden-Powell was painful. Was surprised that the register was missing here as well, seems a pretty remote spot for someone to take it. Spent 15 minutes looking all over the summit for it to no avail." - Christopher, Sep 9, 2013
