Ascent Trip Report

Took the Twin Lakes Trail from east end of Wright's Lake, then followed the Hemlock Lake Trail to Hemlock Lake, then cross country up the ridge just before the lake, and across the ridge, then gradually up the exfoliated granite to the peak. An easier route was followed on the way down by not using the east-west ridge by going straight down to the east side of Hemlock Lake and then taking the trail back. Took 4.3 hours total.
