Ascent Trip Report

Hiked solo, using this as practice for Mt. Whitney at the end of the month. Nicely maintained trail. Started a little later than I wanted to but temperatures remained pleasant, it was windy at the summit but not unbearable. Once at the top you have a 360º degree view of the wilderness, well worth the hike. Trail is rated by some as "for experienced outdoorsmen". It got the heart pumping on the way up the way down can be a quick trip. I met three groups of hikers on the way down as well a large group of horseback riders.
