Ascent Trip Report

Continuing from trip described under Sugraloaf Mtn, I went back to camp at Last Camp and hunted the next day; the next day hunted back along trail with Archie to climb the 100' of deer-trailed (up to within 20' of summit) and to the top of the summit block. It was unusual, a large flat area filled in with gravel with a burnt sign (saw fused glass and two burnt wooden posts). From there we hunted Hammerhorn ridge, went back to camp for a day, and then packed out in the rain the last day, Tues
