Ascent Trip Report

We hiked this on a sort of rainy day. We originally were hoping for Del Campo on this day but the weather ended that plan. Looking for something short, we came up with Pratt and Greg had the smart idea of leveraging our two vehicles into a one way hike with a car shuttle. We went up form the SE and down the SW side of the peak so that we could see both sides. Route is simple, mostly just trail. Open boulder fields with some snow and landmine meltout. Still a decent amount of snow in the lake basins between Pratt Mtn and Mason Lake. I bent my trekking pole when I fell through some snow onto my ass. :-(
