Ascent Trip Report

Delightful hike starting at Trail Canyon. Spend the night at the trailhead and got an early start. At least 25 people summited by my count. A lovely sunny day with little wind up top.

The airy traverse along the cliffside after Devil's Thumb is quite something : a masterful piece of trail building .
