Ascent Trip Report

Hiked up Glen Boulder Trail to a point close to South Slide Peak where a trail led off to the south towards South Slide Peak. Followed that for 50-60 yds to a small clearing and the trail ended. Con't on with a bushwhack uphill to a smaller clearing which I took to be the summit of South Slide Peak and then made a beeline back to Glen Boulder Trail and reached the trail a bit further along from my point of departure. About a 30-40 minute detour. Then continued along to Slide Peak for a lunch in the sun with a great view of the gulf and presidentials.
