Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful sunny day, tons of people heading up Giant as i was heading down. Not so many to RPR. The hike up Giant is not as bad as I thought it would be, but it is definately steep. The hike over to RPR was fairly easy, the ascent up RPR seemed short and was not steep. The ascent back up Giant though was definately tough, not just because of fatigue, it is steep. Views were incredible, especially from RPR. Overall great blood pumping hike.
