Ascent Trip Report

From the Denny Creek trailhead, hiked up the cwm a few hours and made camp beside Denny Creek at about 11,500 feet, fantastic views in the valley. Made the summit the next day with my Australian shepherd, Ace, about 1.5 years old at the time. Returned to camp about 2pm, then hiked out the next day. Pleasant camping, but dropped below freezing during the night.
